Essential Packing for this Trip — I had been forewarned about amenities breaking down and people getting tummy bugs, so I took a bottle of colloidal silver with me. Also as I had never been on a ship before I took a bottle of ginger tablets and took two with each meal each day and had a blast: no seasickness at all.

Best bits & trip highlights

A balcony room overlooking the ocean and able to watch the storms and aurora over the Antarctic.

Worst bits

The blocked toilets… Lol!

My Experience

Wonderful, full of ocean drama and storms, and loads of on board things to do. Great service and the food was amazing. There is loads to choose from and I had pre-booked into pampering appointments. My teenager children were very busy the whole time.

For first timers, go explore… A ship has so many areas for entertainment and relaxation. The food, atmosphere and service are great!
