Taken on the most perfect day anyone could imagine down in Antarctica… sun, blue sky, pengiuns, whales… awesome!!!
Hubby and I went on an Antarctic cruise in January 2005 – the Marco Polo performed extremely well in the conditiions encountered – stunning summer weather, 10C temperatures and the like!!! She was also fantastic in the storm force 11 seas we encountered on our way back to Ushuaia whilst crossing the dreaded Drake Passage!
Sadly, the Marco Polo has been retired by Orient Lines… would have loved to go on her final cruise last March (2008) but time and money didn’t permit…
