Tell us about the Greg Mortimer
We originally planned to be on the Sylvia Earle and were disapointed it wasn't ready. But our cabin was much bigger than expected and the food was great. The chef was Indian and there were amazing vegetarian options at all meals.
It was odd that there were no options the day we boarded the ship. The hotel restaurant wasn't open for lunch and there wasn't time to go into town and also meet folks at the hotel for the city tour. I'd suggest either an option to start the city tour in town or a box lunch on the bus.
Do you have any tips or advice for other people planning a trip to Antarctica?
Book all parts of the trip through Swoop, not just the cruise.
Has your experience changed your perspective in any way?
Yes, the images of Antarctica stick in my mind and I'm still reading about the continent. It really brings home how vast this world is.
Do you have any recommendations for Swoop, or feedback about the team?
I like that you offer your staff opportunities to go on the cruises when possible.
Was there anything else Swoop could have done for you to help you prepare for your trip?
We found out after we paid everything in full that Aurora switched us to another ship that left two days earlier. We only found out that Aurora would reimburse the extra cost when people on the ship shared their experience with us.
