Overall, how was your trip?
The trip was incredible and I enjoyed all of the landings the most. I think the highlights were seeing all of the wildlife, like penguins, whales, and seals, and experiencing the stillness and vastness of the place. The people I met on the boat were a lot of fun, and I was happy that this trip had young people (millennials) who I hung out with, as well as older people. The only surprise was how much Antarctica affected me on a deep and almost spiritual level with its beauty and remoteness.
In one sentence, what did you think of Antarctica? Did it live up to your expectations?
Antarctica was the most amazing, stunning, dramatic, and peaceful place I have ever visited.

You chose a/an experience. How was that experience?
The experience was amazing! I had such a great time. 100% recommended. I thought the trip was better in terms of natural scenery than any other I have ever been on.
If Swoop arranged some of your travel before/after your voyage. How did we do?
I think we arranged all of our own travel because we took some side trips in Ushuaia and BsAs and also went to Iguazú falls, but everything was great!
How were your experiences on the zodiac excursions and shore landings?
Amazing! We saw so much wildlife! The ice was so cool and the staff were knowledgeable and friendly. I enjoyed everything. I think Neko Harbor and the bases we visited were my favorite spots.
Do you have any tips or advice for other people planning a trip to Antarctica?
Be open to the experience as it unfolds because plans change frequently. You may not see exactly what you expected, but you will see amazing things and the experience will be incredible overall!
