    Wow! What a trip! Let me firstly say I believe we were exceptionally lucky with our wildlife viewing. We saw 10 polar bears, some close and some far, Walrus, Seals, Dolphins, five types of whales (Blue, Minke, Fin, Humpback and Sperm) with a distant sighting of Beluga whales in Longyearbyen harbour on the last day. We also saw Arctic foxes several times, lots of birdlife and even some man made locations such as Pyramiden (an abandoned Russian mining town) The Ship itself was fantastic. She's not the largest vessel I've been on but I think that's an advantage as you felt like you could talk and get to know most people and staff on board. Lots of little things impressed me, the staff, in particular the Bar Staff remembered my name and my drink order, there may have only been 120 people or so but I still thought that was really great service. Also the cleaning staff would clean your room after breakfast and lunch when we were off the ship on excusions, I never expected that level of service. The highlight was certainly visiting the pack ice North of Spitzbergen, it was here that we had our closest Bear encounter (see picture attached) - The bear was very curious and visited the ship for around 45 mins, even approaching within 12 feet of the ship..amazing. The Zodiac excursions were really well executed and the expedition staff were an unexpected highlight, they were really knowledgeable and would explain each animal or plant we came across, there was lectures and briefings daily to provide further insight into the animals and landscapes we could attend if we wished. Hard to fault the trip, I would caution anyone who is keen on the trip that I think we were exceptionally lucky to see so much.. but then perhaps luck will be on your side and you'll see lots also.
