Region: Antarctica

Destinations: Antarctic Peninsula

Ship: m/v Ortelius

This trip was beyond anything I could imagine. The quarters were very nice and the service 5 stars. The food was unbelievable! Some of our activities were cancelled due to weather but the staff did the best to keep us occupied and our eyes dazzled. They changed the route to keep us seeing more of the unknown. My only complaint was the ship photographer. She took many photos but stated she cannot share any of the good ones because she will be putting them on her website to sell. Many of us were relying on her to get photos different from ours pictures of us and we all discussed how disappointed we were. The ship prior to us with some friend on it were gifted a 25 minutes slide show. She presented an unedited 4 minute slide show that had us all disappointed.

Dear Jennifer,

Thank you very kindly for your review. We are very glad that you enjoyed your voyage aboard Ortelius. We can however understand your disappointment that our photo guide didn’t want to provide any of her pictures. On the other hand, they belong to her and she is free to make her own decision in terms of sharing pictures. The role of our photo guides is to assist our passengers making photographs.
We really hope she has contributed to that goal.

Been on one of our voyages?
