Epic Antarctica: Crossing the Circle via Falklands and South Georgia — Reviews
Absolutely the most fantastic trip ever! The scenery was stunning, the animals were amazing, the weather was cooperative (as were the seas), the ship staff bent over backwards to accommodate us, and the expedition staff gave us the experience of a lifetime. The expedition leader was superb and through her inexhaustible efforts she made the whole trip a huge success from the time we boarded to the time we disembarked. There are not enough adjectives to describe our experience but it was simply amazing. This trip should be at the top of everyone's to-do list.
Cheli was fantastic!! She maintained excellent control of crew & passengers alike. Cheli was everywhere and at all times.
A very dedicated and compassionate workhorse. What Trojan you were - Thank you, Thank you Cheli!!
Raakhe Kapila and Amalia Goodall are outstanding in prompt response to my email enquires before the commencement of trip, putting my mind at ease with trip/hotel/transport logistics
Cheli Larsen’s wish to show us as much of Antarctica assured us she would choose the best and as many as weather permits, spots for landing. In addition, she granted our nine-year old son an interview for his school report, gave him a lesson on zodiac-driving as she manages transport of canoes, post him on bridge watch for whales (and we spotted groups of humpback whales and orca), and let him summarize one recap night towards the end of the trip.
The other 30-or-so expedition team members are most incredibly awesome people, especially Mette Eliseussen, Noah Strycker, Colin Souness, Meghan Roberts and Nicky Souness - their friendliness and willingness to share their experience made this trip most memorable.
We are always warmly greeted by our cabin attendant Kiev and the catering staff - which made returning to cabin and having meals in light-hearted atmosphere making the entire experience too good to be true.
The landscape, the living creatures, the expedition team, the crew, and also making new friends amongst fellow passengers, have given us precious memories of the trip, having spent quite a sum of money and time. We return becoming more aware of our role as environmental stewards of earth.
Expedition all over the top fabulousl
The trip was an enormous success due to the skillfulness of the captain of the ship and the tenacity and resourcefulness of the expedition leader and her team. The hotel staff were also above and beyond. I was constantly amazed at the staff on the ship. The trip exceeded all of my expectations except for the coffee. The coffee needs to be upgraded. Perhaps some costa rican coffee.
I will definitely look to Quark when I plan a trip to the Artic.
