  1. We are booked on the G Adventures “Spirit of Shackleton” expedition cruise on 10 February, 2021 that visits the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Antarctica on the G Expedition. As we prepare for our trip we have watched a lot of YouTube videos about Antarctica cruises and when searching again yesterday I found this new video that was filmed on the February 2020 “Spirit of Shackleton” cruise with the same itinerary as ours, that had just been uploaded the day before by Stefan Bernhard. We were very impressed with this video, which includes a lot of wildlife footage and has b

  6. We visited Papeete, Moorea and Bora Bora while on a cruise from Hawaii to Sydney on the Celebrity Solstice in October 2013 and have wanted to go back to French Polynesia ever since.
