Were Swoop right to recommend Antarctica 21?


Tell us about the wildlife

Yes! I took lots of pictures of seals, whales, amd penguins!

Tell us about Zodiac excursions

Yes, I felt safe with the expeditionists! In fact, it was really fun hanging out with them! Most memorable.... when it snowed really hard and it was the perfect "Antarctic" climate feel!

Tell us about the expedition team

My favorite lecture was about the penguins! The staffs are perfect and friendly!!! Shout outs to Hadleigh, Raghnild, jaskiran, josh, yuki, beate, sofia, Pelin, Jonathan, Zibo, marcelo, Nicolas

Tell us about the Ocean Nova

Very comfy! I felt at home and did not have any episode of "claustrophobia!" I honestly prefer this kind of ship, not luxurious, but very comfy and fit for the expedition. Maybe the Captain can haveore interaction with the guests. Maybe photo opportunities. I am just a bit sad that I was not able to go to the bridge and interact with the captain Valery, while some passengers were allowed during the january 8th. (Just dont want to drop names).

Something Else?

Maybe next time I can be allowed to communicate with the captain so I can learn something about the navigation jargons amd whatnots.

Do you have any tips or advice for other people planning a trip to Antarctica?

Choose amtarctica 21 via swoop. :-)

Has your experience changed your perspective in any way?

Yes! I am very grateful and lucky to have been able to visit and step on the 7th continent! This opened a new perspective of how beautiful our world really is!

Do you have any recommendations for Swoop, or feedback about the team?

Maybe next time I can interact with the Captain? Maybe next time there will be a certificate for crossing the circle and the polar plunge? But overall, I am very contented! :-)

How prepared and excited for Antarctica did you feel?

Super prepared and excited! I bookedy trip in 2020. Despite the pandemic and the sluggish processing of the Chilean visa, nothing ever stopped me from doing this expedition!
