What our customers think
The expedition staff were just amazing, all specialists in their fields often coming to join us at the table where we enjoyed getting to know them. A real treat.
Lucien & Marie-Eve South Africa January 2018
The ship was luxurious and the food, drink and service of an extremely high quality. The staff supporting trips from the ship were of a high calibre and the lecturers well informed. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone.
Jennifer UK November 2017
The crew and staff were outstanding, and the expedition staff provided excellent lectures. Everyone always engaged with guests at meals and daily meetings. We could not be happier with how the trip was supported.
Ryan Massachusetts November 2016
I was on the Ocean Endeavour, a fantastic ship. It really was gourmet food 4 times a day. The staff all knew my name (I don't know how). I would recommend this trip to any one wanting to see the 7th continent.

Ocean Endeavour was very comfortable. Our cabin was nice and clean with ample storage place. The meals were excellent - very nice selections of food and wine. The quality of the food exceeded expectations.
Avivit Georgia February 2017
I was not expecting such a lovely ship! It was lovely in ALL ways. The cleanliness, the decor, the amenities, the food, and most of all, the crew - all outstanding. The captain did his job expertly and went way over and beyond the call of duty making sure we saw as much wildlife as possible.
