We had some amazing wildlife sightings! Polar bears and blue whales! (more)Caterina Sanders
It was brilliant, one of the best things I have done during my many years of overseas travel, and the weather was really kind to us. (more)Susan Lett
We had so many memorable moments. A Blue Whale and her calf cut across our bow when we were sailing, it was so exciting. Hoisting the sails was an exciting moment and everyone was keen to join in. (more)Gayna Wallis

From
US $5,999
excluding flights
The whole trip from the time we boarded the ship to disembarkation. The most memorable thing was not getting sea sick the ship is that stable...The best ever. (more)David Lohan
This was the most incredible vacation - the staff on our ship were so efficient and hospitable, the landings were well managed and offered a diverse range of activities (hiking, sliding down the slopes on our stomachs, seals/penguins/birds - and the occasional whale), fascinating lectures, and a wonderful small ship environment.

£6,750

This trip will forever stay in my heart. Incredible. I would go again tomorrow if I got the chance. (more)Helen Connolly
Fantastic - it's more than a vacation and is so different to anything else I have ever done. South Georgia is an amazing place. The beaches were packed with tens of thousands of penguins and they weren't afraid to come right up to us. The scenery in Antarctica is beautiful. (more)rebecca allcock
Every part of the vacation was memorable including animals, birds, scenery, the ship (Polar Pioneer), fellow travelers and expedition team. (more)Christine Brignoni
Antarctica, Falklands and South Georgia cruises
From
£10,530
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The highlight of the trip for me was always going to be South Georgia, which has fascinated me for years and entirely lived up to my very high expectations. What a stunningly beautiful place! We were extremely fortunate as we approached the island because there was no cloud cover and we could see the full magnificence of the snowy peaks in all their glory - a rare occurrence apparently. During three whole days around this incredible island, we made a numerous landings and... (more)Roger Bilder
Arctic diving & Polar Bear Watching Expedition
From
€3,020
excluding flights
Memorable parts? All of it! The extremes of weather, the diversity of animals, the quality of the accommodation and facilities, and something you can't plan for - new found friends! Tips? Don't set your heart on seeing anything specific. Be prepared for the changes in weather. It's not as challenging as I expected - to take account of the huge spectrum of ages and abilities. But most of all HAVE FUN! Local benefits? Not so much the local people, though we did buy a lot... (more)Lisa Thomas

From
£4,680
excluding flights
All of the activities were amazing but sleeping out under the stars was a real highlight. Outstanding 10/10. (more)Rebecca Allen
The most memorable was landing on the Antarctic peninsula - our seventh continent! Definitely ten out of ten! Wonderfully organised! An amazing experience! We learnt so much! (more)Margaret Shaw
The second was sea kayaking around Danco Island. The water was still, there were iceberg all over the place which we paddled through, and penguins were jumping out of the water all around us. The landscape was stunning, and I will never forget this activity. (more)Jack Clancy
Spitsbergen wildlife cruises
From
US $4,299
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing a mother polar bear and her two cubs walking on the ice floes walking along them then diving in and swimming to the next one. The cubs following on behind her. Fabulous! Tips? Be warm but also have some smart casual clothes to wear in the evening. When inside of the boat you can be relatively warm - have those layers for going out on deck where it can be cooler but you can watch the midnight sun or enjoy the on deck BBQ. If you want good photographs make sure... (more)Susie Barrett

From
£2,550

An amazing trip! The scenery -glaciers, icebergs and sea ice - were stunning, the northern lights fantastic, and the wildlife wonderful. It is impossible to highlight one part, as it was two memorable weeks! (more)Kathryn Huddle
Seeing polar bears, walruses and whales. Especially seeing a rare Bowhead whale whilst moving through the pack ice. (more)Peter Smart
Very good... the most memorable parts is arriving at the pack ice on a beautiful sunny evening and then seeing our first polar bear. (more)david rumsey
Arctic cruise adventure vacation
From
US $4,500
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The vacation was great throughout but the highlight has to be seeing our first polar bear with 2 cubs! The scenery was also spectacular. Tips? Take a range of clothes for all temperatures. I did not expect it to be high 20s 200 miles north of the Arctic circle! but I wasn't complaining! Local benefits? All efforts were made to reduce environmental impact. Overall rating? Excellent trip, good mix of activities and high standard of food and accommodation (more)Judith Olsen
Antarctic Peninsula & Weddell Sea cruise
From
€6,050
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The close sighting of a pod of Orca attacking a Humpbacked Whale and penguins. Bird watching from the ship. Visiting the mainland at Neko Harbour. The ideal size of the ship and friendliness of the other passengers and crew. Tips? Don't bother taking your own warm boots. Those provided were perfectly adequate with our own waterproof walking shoes for deck walking. Local benefits? Yes Overall rating? A wonderful experience (more)Roger Labbatt
Kamchatka wildlife and bird watching cruise, Russia
From
US $8,000
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing the ribbon seals, the northern right whale and the spoonbill sandpiper. Tips? Be prepared for lots of walking on the tundra. Also understand that the ship does not have stabilizers so even a mild swell rocks the ship. Bring a good layering system as temperatures and ice conditions can vary greatly. Local benefits? Supported conservation and the spoonbill sandpiper project. I suppose that we provided some income for the people in the towns in which... (more)Marian Herz
Great Barrier Reef & Lizard Island cruise, Australia
From
£1,325
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef. Tips? Make the most of it. The food is excellent, the service is amazing and the snorkeling and diving are the best experience ever. Local benefits? I hope so. I would't have minded paying more if needed. Overall rating? One of the best experience of my life. (more)Isabelle Kerdranvat

From
£10,999

Memorable parts? Stunning Antarctic views, penguin colonies, whales ... Kayaking, swimming in Antarctic Ocean! Tips?

No words that I can write nor pictures that I can show will ever capture the magic, the feeling and the mood of Antarctica. You simply have to go there for that. It was beyond compare utterly beautiful in every way. (more)David Oates

From
£3,999
excluding flights
Interacting with the wildlife in Antarctica was the most memorable part of the vacation. (more)Robert Pecoraro
All of it was memorable, but if I had to pick it would be my first sight of Antarctica which was at sunrise, wow! And my 30 minute dive with a leopard seal. But it was all amazing. (more)Stacy Valentine
Most memorable was diving around the ice bergs and snorkelling with the leopard seal. Real WOW factor. (more)Judith Bewell

Northern lights and whale watching cruise in Iceland
From
£1,352
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The thrill of such a variety of remarkable landscapes. It was like being on another planet and truly wonderful. Tips? Make sure you know exactly what is paid for. e.g. just because the trips are on the itinerary don't assume they are included. Also I was told of various ways I could get from the airport to the ship and I booked and paid for a return bus but at the last minute was told Pro-Ocean had arranged for pick-up at the airport. A little lack of organisation.... (more)Jeanette Morrison
Fiji cruise, escape to paradise
From
£1,949
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The Blue Lagoon Cruise, no question. We did the 3 day cruise 15 years ago, always said we would do it again, this time the 7 day cruise. We worried a bit, wondering if it would be as good, but it was fabulous! We would highly recommend it, if you like small ships. We also had 6 days on the 'mainland' 2 days on Bounty Island, it was okay if you were 20 (our guide said she thought we were 30)nothing on the island but the resort, and extremely loud music! We had a 2 day... (more)Ms Adrian Redford
