On this beautiful, modern ship, we were cruising the Arctic in Style. Every area from the sunlit atrium and library to the presentation lounge was thoughtfully laid out.

Because every room on the ship was not occupied, we got to tour a couple of the other rooms, including the fully accessible room, but keep in mind that all shore excursions and even embarkation was via Zodiac, so if someone was a full time wheel chair user they might have to make special arrangements to embark and debark, and they would be on the ship the whole voyage.

All the rooms were beautifully decorated with mural pictures of Arctic and Antarctic wildlife. The heated bathroom floors were not only cozy, but also useful in helping to dry gloves and hats between excursions.

The whole crew, from the housekeeping staff, to the bar tenders, to the waiters and especially the expedition team really made the whole experience one of the most wonderful in our lives. They even gave us Polar Plunge T-shirts and certificates.
