January 2015 - Zaandam to South America
Beautiful destinations, great on board ship life, a Captain that made seeing Antarctica enjoyable, well informed lecturers all combined for a "perfect union" to make this one of my better cruise experiences. While the object of my attention had been Antarctica, I came away overwhelmed by the Chilean sights Just awesome.
This trip was an assault on all the senses - eyes, ears, nose, taste, feel - especially nose with the penguins but that was part of the appeal.
The quality of the naturalists/lecturers aided immeasurably in my appreciation and enjoyment.
