I've seen so many polar bears in zoos that I thought seeing them in the wild would not be too exciting. I could not have been more wrong. We had an amazing long and close encounter with a mother polar bear and her two cubs. We also saw Bowhead Whales, which is something I was not expecting but very much appreciate. Lots of wildlife. I also really enjoyed spending time on the bridge, learning about ship operations. The crew were very kind and answered all of my questions.

Been on one of our voyages?
