North Pole — Reviews
This trip I have dreamed of for at least 10 years. From the moment I contacted Ms. Danna Walker until I left the ship I felt 5 star service or better had been provided for me. Ms. Walker helped me through all the paperwork and answered many questions; friendly and professional. All the staff aboard the ship made me feel special and even the other passengers were some of the best people I have ever met. The knowledge gained from the lectures and the scenery and the wildlife seen again were above 5 star. It was exciting, beautiful and interesting. I'm ready to go again! Recommend you go and enjoy. Thank you to all who were a part of my trip. I, also, appreciate that you have enabled us to see the pictures shared.
Excellent trip, we’ll organized. The expedition staff was knowledgeable and helpful.
Quark did itself proud with this trip: great organization, superb expedition crew, excellent lectures, a wonderful "hotel" with over-the-top cuisine and friendly staff. And to all that you added magnificent scenery -- e.g., I never got tired of standing on deck viewing the sea ice -- and wildlife (5 polar bears! walruses! birds!) and helicopter rides and fun activities at 90°!! Truly the trip of a lifetime -- THANK YOU!!
Best thing about the trip was the expedition team. ALL of them were enthusiastic, approachable, friendly, helpful, etc.
The experience of visiting the North Pole and Franz Joseph Land was an extraordinary experience...made perfect by the amazing crew and staff that work very hard to assure a quality experience on every level. 30 polar bears !
