Thanks OsloDutch, great response. Their new builds are of interest to me as well as the smallest oldest member of their fleet. They are getting into the Antartic arena which is of interest to me but very expensive. After next years venture to India I might consider Hurtigruten. I sailed the Deutchland out of Germany and loved the experience �� Yes the only gay in the village but there were so many wannabes��. Been many years since we met on HAL, hope you are doing great.

If you want to take an expedition trip to Antartica I suggest you shop around. Hurtigruten will have a new expedition ship in service by that time. However based on the current product I suggest you shop around as there are vessels around who offer far more better service and accommodation at the current Hurtigruten pricing level.I would definitely second the advice to consider additional expedition companies for Antarctica, especially those with smaller ships. (There's an Antarctica forum here on CC, and one on Trip Advisor too.) FWIW, my wife and I had the most incredible Antarctica adventure with Lindblad/National Geographic on the Nat Geo Explorer. I know that "trip of a lifetime " is a terrible cliche, but that's what this was. In case you may find it useful, here's the link to my detailed photo journal of our trip. And yes, we may have been the only "gays in the village," but this was of no matter. Small ship, wonderful fellow sailors, and it's all about what's outside anyway.
