    Arctic Awakening Spring 2015

    On the spur of the moment on a Thursday (mainly because we had no grandkid duties the following week) we asked about taking a part Coastal Voyage from Kirkeness back down to Bergen on Hurtigruten. By Saturday evening we had itinerary and tickets to leave on the Sunday for Oslo (thanks Bolsover!). We were on MS Finnmarken and for 6 days and we journeyed South taking in fabulous views, calling at lots of ports and getting some incredible food. This wasn't like being on P&O as the ship was a working ship but with tourists from all over Europe. We even managed 3 hours of the Northern Lights which was a bonus in April We had a fabulous time and want to do the journey North and then the South again but this time in a different season. Here is my summary blog which has lots of pictures and links to me daily blogs which have even more photos and a port count: http://www.ianhardacre.com/artic-awakening-spring-2015/

    Antarctica

    We are debating whether to book to go in 2017 and were wondering if anyone here had been to Antarctica on Fram? What were the transfers like? (We were unsure about some of the airlines offered) And lastly what were the onshore expeditions like?

  4. Advice please. Last week on Arcadia's fjord cruise I observed a number of (male) passengers using the loos and not washing their hands, so finally I suggested to one that washing his hands might be a good idea (yes that politely!) I was subjected to a torrent of abuse along the lines that he was fed up by being told to wash his hands by P&O and he'd wash them if he wanted to and that he didn't want to and most of all I should mind my own business (expletives and repetitions deleted) Should I have just ignored him or is there a way of asking that would not offend? PS Last time I was on Arcadia (May 2012) we had a serious outbreak of norovirus - hence my concern
