We were on the Sea Spirit for the July/August 2014 circumnavigation of Spitsbergen.
This boat is just pure luxury, with fabulous food, a great hot tub, & a fine crew to look after us.
We saw several polar bears, many walrus, some arctic foxes, & a whale festival.
TWO blue whales escorted our ship, & then Finn whales appeared, & the next day a Humpback put in an appearance.
Don't forget the seals. the icebergs, the glaciers, the many different species of birds.
Remember the sights of the sad relics from the old abandoned whaling stations.
"Super bear" scaled rocks to get the bird's eggs plus some tasty fledglings. She must have been very hungry, there are many photos of her epic climbing adventure.
Hadleigh is clearly a leader, but why he felt the need to continually congratulate all the passengers & his staff, about what we had done or seen, I'm not sure. But anyway all the rich American customers seemed to lap up that sort of stuff.
If you are British, do be prepared to be in a minority of the guests, so there were a few cultural shocks in the bar & the restaurant at odd times.
This holiday cost us nearly £19,000 which includes flights, 12 nights on the boat, one of the best cabins on Deck 6. Also in that figure are one night pre-tour, & one night post tour in the Oslo Airport Radisson Hotel. We did that to split up the two flights from Heathrow to Oslo, and then next day Oslo to Longyearbyen, and then of course the return trip.
