Nilesh Patel review 2 Jan 2020
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
be prepared for anything and make the most of it.
the benefits of a smaller ship allowing for more off-ship outings are real.
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
benefited local people to the extent that all tourism does.
while more people visiting antarctica is a positive from the general awareness viewpoint I feel it is a stretch to suggest it supports conservation and certainly the increasing numbers visiting from far and wide increases environmental impact rather than reduce.
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
Enjoyed the expedition part but the catering side was a let down on a couple of days. Christmas and final dinner before departure were touted as special days
though this did not apply for pax with special diets. We were left very disappointed, which on a premium cruise should not be happening.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and experience.
An expedition voyage can be a life changing event, through lectures on board clients are being informed of the environmental impact climate change has on our planet, and many return home and think about how they can improve and help to save our wonderful world.
We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your adventure overall but sorry you were let down by the catering on board, please be assured your comments will be passed on which will help improve future passengers voyages.
