We had arrived at a penguin colony

And the Captain was moving the ship around so that both sides of the ship could see it

We didn't get too close to the mountain though

The brown trails were made by the penguins and we could smell them

We were trying  for so closer shots of the penguins but the Humpback whales divided our attention

Just love seeing the great photos again and bringing back memories of my visit to Antarctica. Great way to display them as well.

We hope so but haven't seen any reviews .

They would be in the Antarctic Advertiser which is only delivered to the residents by Sea Snail Mail.

 The fast ones travel by R cargo, the ones that get caught are the S Cargo?

The Eclipse will have only 2 more seasons to sail to Antarctica due to the Polar Ice Codes . This may be the only type of choice after that .

Seeing a thousand penguins swimming in a pack was a wonderful sight, it made the sea look like it was boiling.
