Anyone out there booked to go on this expedition? It will be my 3rd polar experience and I can't wait to go!
Hi, We're going on the same trip but leaving on 13/1/2012. It's our first time to Antarctica & can't wait.
Any tips? Richard & Pauline.
Hi Claire, Thank you so much for your really helpful tips. Just two other questions for the time being - is the 'dress code' really casual on the ship (we're going on the Sea Spirit). We're assuming (hoping) that it's more about comfort than anything else.
Also, if you had to choose would you rather go to the Arctic or the Antarctic? The recent TV show Frozen Planet has really whetted the appetite!
Have a great trip in December.
Regards, Richard & Pauline
Hi Richard and Pauline
On the Vavilov, the dress code was really casual but I don't know about the Sea Spirit as I think that is more "up market". I would just bear in mind that if the crew spot something interesting to see, you will endup outside, so good idea to always have something warm to hand. The only slightly formal night was the Captain's dinner - but even here, most people were in casual attire. The crew dressed in "uniform" for this event.
Antarctic or Arctic. Really hard question as they are both very different and literally polar opposites in practically everyway. I came straight off the ship from the Antarctic, went into an internet cafe in Ushuaia and booked the artic. In the Artic, we were really lucky with amazing polar bear sightings. However, for me, it is the huge,remote vastness of Antartica and the big ice that is taking me back (plus the penguins, whales and seals).
