Die Reise selbst war für meinen Mann und mich ein unvergessliches wunderbares Erlebnis: das Expeditionsteam ermöglichte es durch ausgezeichnete Organisation, Aufmerksamkeit in allen Bereichen und vor allem durch Begeisterung und Hingabe der besuchten Natur gegenüber! Auf dem Schiff war wirklich alles bestens !
Was den fünften Stern in unserer Bewertung verhindert hat, war die mangelhafte Kommunikation bzw. Information vor Antritt der Reise, hier hätten wir uns mehr gewünscht!

Wir haben die Silvester Antarktis Kreuzfahrt gemacht und waren Rundrum zufrieden. Es ist einem nie langweilig, auch nicht auf der 2-tägigen Überfahrt. Lauen irgendwelche Vorträge und Infos. Tolles Personal an Bord inkl. Fachleute zu vielen Themen (Klima, Vögel der Antarktis, Gesteinsformen der Antarktis, Professoren die Antarktis und Arktis unterrichten, See-Forscher der Antarktis, ...)
Die Eindrücke waren atemberaubend. Die Crew an Bord gut ausgebildet, sehr freundlich und kompetent.
Die Zimmer sind auch sehr schön und geräumig.
Die Bordküche ist auch gut. Könnte etwas abwechslungsreicher sein, aber die Lebensmittel wurden immer gut zubereitet.
Wir waren mit allem wirklich zufrieden und die ganze Stimmung an Bord war wunderbar. Wie eine große Familie.
Wir überlegen gerade die Reise an den Nordpol mit Poseidon zu machen.

I´ve learned so much about Peruvian culture and history. One of the best experiences was meeting all the people, like the Ecoamazonia lodge guide Elmer, Sol in Cusco!.

The trip was one of the best trips we've done. Machu travel did a great job from logistics on airport, bus transfers, hotels are in the center of town, excursions were very organized, staff were there for us to take care of our needs, tour guides were very knowledgeable. Thank you!

    About Poseidon Expeditions

    Since 1999, Poseidon Expeditions has been leading adventures to the world’s Polar Regions.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    An innovator in polar exploration, Poseidon takes you on a breathtaking journey through icy waters and snow. They offer such activities as camping in Antarctica, penguin viewing (of course!) and adventure sea kayaking through their own kayaking club. 

    Who Travels With Them?

    The great thing about a cruise is even the most cautious traveler can visit adventurous destinations. They do require a single supplement if you are traveling solo, so unless you’re ok paying a bit extra, their trips are ideally suited to families or couples. The average age of travelers is between 45 and 65 and they recommend that travelers be physically fit.

    Where Do They Operate?

    Poseidon Expeditions specializes in the polar regions of the world, meaning Antarctica and the Arctic. You will visit the enchanting lands of Greenland, and experience the thrill of dodging ice in a zodiac in Antarctica; cruise through Iceland, and visit the North Pole. Due to their specialized focus, they have extensive expertise in these regions, giving you an in depth look at their tremendous beauty and history.

    Why Travel With Them?

    For an adventurous travel experience including fun shore excursions such as hiking and a lot of on-ship activities such as whale watching. Knowledgeable expedition guides provide expert insight on local wildlife, and the science behind the incredible landscapes you’ll explore.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Who Travels With Them?

    Where Do They Operate?
