I was very pleased with the Antarctic Peninsula Program. The introduction to Buenos Aires and Ushuaia was appreciated as I had never been to Argentina. I definitely want to return to see more of the country. The small ship cruise to the Antarctic Peninsula was amazing. We were blessed with good weather and got to do twice a day landings or zodiac cruises. The scenery was spectacular and the seals, penguins, whales, and sea birds were a delight to see. The penguins still had babies in the nests and watching their behavior and daily routine was fascinating and sometimes humorous. The tour to a U.S. research center was interesting and the staff was so welcoming. The crew of the ship couldn't have been better. They were so helpful and available. The numerous lectures were great. The ship itself and the freedom we had to move around it was so nice and the small size made it feel like a home away from home. The food was delicious and I was impressed with the effort the chef took in making sure that those persons in the group with special diets were catered to. The trip will always provide special memories for me.
