We left from Ushuaia and traveled to Antarctica on the Hondius in February of 2020. We had 2 days at sea, followed by 4 days of exploring the Antarctica, and finished with 2 more days at sea. The guides were excellent and very professional and friendly. They were always pointing out wildlife and interesting information about the area we were in.
The boat had just the right ratio of staff to guests. There were about 160 guests and about 70 staff.
The food was tasty.
We had a suite with a balcony which was nice when there were dolphins or whales to see. I would encourage anyone to try this company and this location. The staff really tried to get us off the ship as much as possible. We were in Zodiacs to travel from ship to shore and to cruise around. My husband even got to camp out on land one night.
What an adventure with so many great photos!
Suggestions: This cruise is really only for people who are in fairly good physical shape. I don't believe there was an elevator on board and getting in and out of the Zodiac boats required some balance.
Plenty of space for luggage.
We started in Ushuaia and just went shopping.
