Overall, how was your trip?

The trip was well organized. For me the highlight was crossing the Antarctic circle. Unbelievable landscapes and wild life. The biggest surprise was the hitting of the iceberg "a Titanic event".

In one sentence, what did you think of Antarctica? Did it live up to your expectations?

Loved the whole experience very impressive.

Would you visit again?


How was the service that Swoop provided?

Very pleased with the overall experience. Did not really use swoop to pick a ship or a cabin I picked the ship and cabin. The service was great and very detailed. Did not realize that the flight from Punta Arenas to the Falklands was a regular flight with a short stop in Argentina. Thought it was going to be a charter flight.

You chose a/an Fly & Cruise The Antarctic Circle experience. How was that experience?

The experience was great and was just like I anticipated it. It fulfilled all my wants. Visiting the 7th continent and crossing the Antarctic circle. And watching whales and penguins.

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

The biggest problem for us was that my wife was seasick for the first two days and was not a happy camper during that time. Her advice is to really drive home the point that you will be seasick and be prepared to deal with that I.E. bring plenty of seasick medication.

Anything else? Tell us anything you’d like to share that we forgot to ask! It’s ok to leave this empty too :-)

Love the perfect organization of the excursions and the zodiac rides. Overall a very good experience.
