Review summary

The trip exceeded our expectations.  The views in Antarctica segment had spectacular views of mountians, glaciers and ice bergs.  The seas were smooth and the skies were sunny.

The ship was comfortable, food was great and service excellent.

The shows were fantastic and the daily movies usually were chosen to have something to do with where we were cruising.  For instance: 
Evita, and Dance of the Penguins.

Cabin / Stateroom

Comfortable and nice to have a window since the daylight was long. Had the cabin set up with twin beds, otherwise the queen set up didn't allow one to open the curtain without climbing on the bed.

Ship tip

Study and plan your tours or know a little about the stops before you arrive. Some tours can be picked up when you arrive by local taxis or vans.
