It depends if your agent is simply "making a booking with Quark" - or whether it is buying space on board as part of a bulk charter.
If its a charter than Quark does not distribute its boots and parkas. If its simply a booking then yes you get a parka to keep and boots to loan. Not that the parka has a removable puffer inside it so its essentially 2 jackets.
Thank you, PP.
The travel agent told us the parkas and boots are included so that is two less bulky items to pack.
BTW, we decided to go with Ocean Adventurer due to its smaller size as well as earlier season in Nov, which offers more icy scenery. Since this is a trip of a life time and finance is not a huge constraint to us we decided to go for what we consider a slightly better trip.
That being said ms Fram would have saved us about $3500 in an inside room and given us 2 more days and it is in January which is hatching season on the peninsula, so it is definitely a better deal if you prefer later in the season and don't mind inside rooms.
