Lovely, Intimate Tour of Antarctica!
by Maria Curry
Departure in January 2023
I recently had the opportunity to take a trip to Antarctica on the M/V Plancius and it was an absolutely incredible experience. The ship itself was comfortable and well-equipped, and the staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful. The highlight of the trip, of course, was the opportunity to see Antarctica up close. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking, with towering glaciers, snow-covered peaks, and crystal-clear waters teeming with wildlife. We were lucky enough to see a wide variety of animals, including penguins, seals, and even whales. The guides on the trip were incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the area, and they did an excellent job of sharing their knowledge with us. They were always willing to answer questions and provide additional information, and they made sure that we were able to see and experience as much as possible during our time in Antarctica. Overall, I couldn't recommend this trip more highly. Whether you're a nature lover, a history buff, or simply someone looking for an unforgettable adventure, the M/V Plancius is the perfect way to experience the beauty and wonder of Antarctica. Thank you for the wonderful experience.
