Tell us about the wildlife

Even though we did not get to see the Big 5, we appreciated those we did.

Tell us about Zodiac excursions

The zodiac team were excellent, often manned by one of the expedition team as well as the other zodiac drivers. Helpful, informative, fun, they all added to the experience

Tell us about the expedition team

Expedition team were knowledgeable, enthusiastic in their field and open to being stopped and questioned anytime outside of their presentations.

Tell us about the Ocean Endeavour

Cabin was excellent. We wanted to feel part of an 'expedition' cruise but still have a comfortable cabin. The food and service was excellent, run by Singh who was attentive and on hand to anyones need. The only thing I would say the ship on the whole was very cold as was our cabin. I appreciate we were in the Arctic, but even with very warm clothes we felt cold in the shop. I would choose this ship again, especially as it saw us through a rough storm! The captain was amazing and we appreciated him and his team. He gave a moving speech at the end of our trip.

Something Else?

We can look back and say even though things didn't go as we expected it was a trip of a lifetime and we have taken many memories away with us.

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

Emphasise itinerary can change dramatically to avoid disappointment and accept nature can control events

Has your experience changed your perspective in any way?

Yes. Nature will survive us
