The ship's expedition leaders have a wealth of knowledge and expertise to ensure you get the most out of your time on the icy continent, with wildlife, geology and marine specialists to name a few. As well as leading shore excursions and Zodiac® trips, they hold regular talks and lectures in the ship's theatre to enrich your Antarctic experience.

Top tip:

“I love the The Grill restaurant which allows guests to enjoy lava stone cooking! When the weather allows this to take place outdoors, cooking your own food on the table at dinner is pretty special!”
