This is really a review of two cruises because we took that first Antarctic cruise of the year in 2015 and liked it so much we came back for the cruise that included South Georgia Island. Our only disappointment was that we did not get on shore to see the millions of king penguins but had to see them from a zodiac because of high seas.
Anyway, traveling through the Antarctic Peninsula was an amazing experience. The expedition team did a wonderful job of getting everyone on shore safely to see the wildlife as well as giving interesting and informative lectures. We got to see several different types of penguins, seals and many kinds of birds on the landings. This was an experience of a lifetime.
One problem with any Antarctic cruise is crossing the Drake Passage where the seas can be very rough and many people, including my wife, get seasick. If you are likely to get seasick, it is best to choose a stateroom located in the center of the ship on a lower deck to reduce motion.
As usual, the quality of Seabourn's facilities and crew were excellent. We only had a couple of minor complaints
-the food started to get boring by the end of the cruise.
-the observation lounge was too crowded during the afternoon tea so we could not find a place to sit if we arrived at the allotted time.
