Tell us about the Ocean Nova
Cabin was quaint but served its purpose. Food was mostly good. The 3 course dinner we had, the fish was extremely dry and over cooked, also the fish that was served with the pork cheek(which was very good) was extremely dry and bland which is what I was told. We would have liked the bar to be open later on the last night, maybe at least to midnight. Yes, I would choose this ship again.
Tell us about the Kayaking
If you have the means, do this. It says you need to be an expert kayaker. This is not the case, but you definitely need some experience. Blake was extremely knowledgeable and helpful during the kayaking and excursions. Kayaking near whales was a once in a lifetime experience.
Do you have any tips or advice for other people planning a trip to Antarctica?
Try to be in shape. The excursions can be tough for some. There were quite a few inclines, and the provided poles help greatly, use them.
Has your experience changed your perspective in any way?
Seeing penguins makes you appreciate their habitat vs just seeing them at Seaworld.
Do you have any recommendations for Swoop, or feedback about the team?
Maybe some more Antartica souvenirs.
How prepared and excited for Antarctica did you feel?
I was extremely prepared with heated gloves, pants and vest. Fleece sweats top and bottom. Dress like an onion as they say. anti fog goggles also help.
