Despite early disappointments with regarding rerouting, Captain Todd McBain did an wonderful job making this a fantastic experience. He arranged an alternative port with great last minute excursions, and a most amazing cruise through Antarctica. We commend him and the entire crew.

The cabin was exactly what we expected. However, the shower was smaller than most. Our steward kept our cabin clean and we had no issues.
