Heading onto Ushuaia was so exciting. The flight and change of scenery wonderful… All arrangements with Quark were 5 star. What a ship! Well organised – boarding, clothing, schedules, room great location on deck 3, unbelievable menus and food, magical off-ship experiences, expert staff etc. Remind people that the ship plugs are American, so you need Argentinian and American plugs… I had the right combination of warm clothes, take plenty! Do take good camera gear, there is lots of opportunity to interact with the expert onboard. The holiday surpassed all expectations. My most memorable holiday. I recommend Quark and this expedition unreservedly. Wonderful to explore and see ice, penguins, seals, whales, and birds in abundance. I also thoroughly recommend you include South Georgia in any itinerary.
