Spirit of Enderby

Overall, how was your trip?

My highlight was stepping on the Antarctica Continent, the Ross Sea, Ross Island, Ross Ice Shelf, and Port Ross and was my most magical moment. The historic huts were amazing; to think that the explorers endured and many lost their lives for exploration gives me so much respect for all they accomplished. The landscape: icebergs as well as the flora and fauna in such remote areas were breathtaking. The wildlife and how they survive in such extreme conditions was amazing. We had an awesome group of fifty people that socialized, laughed, and shared their stories of who they were and why this trip was meaningful for them.

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

Oh my goodness! The Antarctica expedition was so much more than I ever imagined. We were able to go to the Sub-Antarctic Islands, the Antarctic Continent, visit scientific stations, historic huts, and so much more. The visit and tour of McMurdo Station and Scott Base was the first time in three years that visitors were able to land and visit. Our staff and the crew on the ship were absolutely 'top notch'. I'd travel with the ship's operator again, and book through Swoop Travel as well as recommend these two companies. I am still in awe of this fabulous trip of a lifetime. It has changed me in so many positive ways. Thank you!

Would you visit again?


How was the service that Swoop provided?

I am so happy I booked this trip with Swoop Travel. Their responsiveness to questions and gentle reminders of what I need to complete for trip preparation was a service that rates a '11' out of '10'. Thank you ladies for making my 'trip of a lifetime' so much more than I could have imagined. The accommodation aboard the Spirit of Enderby was just right. Swoop Travel prepared me for the ship conditions - a shared cabin with twin beds, shared bathroom and showers, gourmet meals, and educational lectures plus plenty of fun and laughter.
