Tell us about the wildlife
Penguins, whales, dolphins, seals but would be great if we could have gotten better shots of the Macaronis and the Orcas We didn't get to see the Adelies.
Tell us about Zodiac excursions
All were great. We always felt safe.
Tell us about the expedition team
The expedition team was just fantastic - approachable, friendly, knowledgeable, helpful. We were totally happy with them. Nate was a great leader. Tried hard to bring us to shore and if not then zodiac cruising. Marc was a very friendly hospitality manager. Adam stood out as a most memorable story teller. We could just listen to him all day long - knowledgeable, witty, funny. He was also a very good zodiac guide. Ben was so generous and patient with sharing his photography expertise. He did a great video keepsake for each of us. Stephi, Ruth, Zack, etc were all very good. We were very lucky to get this awesome team!!
Tell us about the Island Sky
Cabin was very comfortable. The F&B team was super! The food was just too good!! We had a difficult time adjusting when we came home. We would definitely love to live on the Island Sky again and again.
Tell us about Buenos Aires
So much to explore so little time. We have to visit again. The walking tours were great. Too much exaggeration about the safety issues, you just have to be alert just like in any city.
Tell us about Ushuaia
Again we have to visit again as it was only good weather for a day. Do many parks and islands to explore. Highlight was the yummy king crab!!
Do you have any tips or advice for other people planning a trip to Antarctica?
Make the full use of the time on board outside your cabin!!
