Congratulations to everyone at Oceanwide for providing a superbly well run expedition on a marvellous ship. The Hondius is a world-leader in its eco credentials and superb for its operating environment. Everyone on board - the sailing crew, hotel team, expedition staff - contributed to a trip that will live in the memory. The itinerary, including the decision to head as far south as Stonington and skip the ravaged Northern Peninsula, covered all the Jewels in the Crown in this part of the World. The pre-departure and return measures taken with regard to COVID-19 were impressive and most effective. We could write reams of praise and appreciation on the expertise and judgement of E/L Adam Turner, assistant E/L Sara Jenner and the team of excellent guides that made this trip so special. The wildlife put on a special show every day - who will forget our time at The Gullet with the orcas, humpbacks, seals, penguins, seabirds, plus the ice and the Sun and the Moon?? Point Wild was also a very special experience. We have made around a dozen Polar expedition trips North and South and when we think of our next one we will always think of Oceanwide first.
