We’re now members of an elite club, the Circle Club. Looks like we’re in good company!

The number who have travelled down to the circle is certainly a lot less. It’s an exclusive club :o)

Even better, it sounds like you had a terrific time. It is an amazing experience, isn’t it? We try to find the words to describe an Antarctica experience, but it’s difficult.

The video from the bridge would have sent chills if we watched it.

Antarctica, the fairytale. So glad you had a chance to experience it and that you shared your thoughts with us!

I posted number 19 above and returned from the trip three weeks ago. Now here in England, looking back it seems fantastic, barely credible. Like visiting another planet. I loved the MS Expedition too; everyone worked so hard to give us the best experience possible. We all became so spoilt in the dining room!

I had a cabin next door to the Mud Room. The sea wasn’t as rough as your trip, although the waves washed over the porthole a few times.

On one day during a lecture in the Discovery lounge they played a video taken last year from the bridge showing the ship in a huge sea in the Drake. I think it may have been from your trip.

Roald Amundsen said ‘Antarctica is a fairytale’ and now I know first hand what he meant. Paradise Harbour, Danco Island, Half Moon Island – these are names that will always be with me. What a magical, enchanted place.

Glad you enjoyed it. Antarctica: vast and fragile for certain.

I loved your story and slideshow. I have booked to travel on the Antarctic Circle trip on the MS Expedition in February/March 2012. It all looks fantastic and now I’m feeling that nervous excitement even more. Thanks for your insights into what must be an amazing trip. Best wishes for future travels!
