It was a very enjoyable adventure of a lifetime. It had exceeded my expectations. My two sisters and I had such a great time together beyond belief. What a great adventure indeed! Our "fearless leaders" Tauck Directors Bill and Rob were just awesome. They had done just a fantastic job on board LE BOREAL and on the expeditions.

Most Memorable Moment:

It was the landing in Aitcho, Shetland Island. The penguins in Aitcho were sociable. It was just amazing! My sisters and I had enjoyed our Le Boreal suite cabin with balcony. We had seen a family of whales at a very close distance. I thought the whales were following the ship till Captain Garcia announced we were following the whales.

Wow, what can one say about such a wonderful trip. It was nice that Tauck arranged for calm seas at least two days in the Drake Passage. Tour directors matched our best in the past. Whales, seals, albatros, penguins...what else could one ask for. We got more than we expected. We loved it.

Most Memorable Moment:

Spending our anniversary on a Zodiac with champagne on Valentine's Day. Wonderful weather, wonderful guests, great scenes, all in one day.

Dream of Dreams!

With a guidance of expert naturalists on board Le Boreal, a crew of knowledgeable sailors guided by an enthusiastic French captain, and two of Tauck's experienced guides whose warmth and fun was shared with our group, we sailed to the White Continent to discover and experience many firsts. Truly a dream come to reality. Many, many thanks!

Most Memorable Moment:

More than one moment: A sweet, innocent moment shared with a friendly, downy, baby penguin; the crackling of colliding ice floes; the explosion of calving ice bergs; the towering mountains of nature's icy continent.

The Tauck tour leaders, Rob and Bill, were terrific as they always are. The Cruise Line working staff were fantastic, but the organization of the landings and the briefings by the ships cruise director left something to be desired. The ship itself was terrific and we had a good time. I think the food was of great quality, but it was not always prepared the way Americans like their food cooked. Overall it was a very nice trip.

Most Memorable Moment:

There were many memorable moments. The most exciting were when the ship was traveling through very rough waters. This definitely added a sense of adventure and thrill to the experience. The scenery was amazing and the trips to shore were wonderful.
