Realm of the polar bear

I am going on this trip in June 2013. I would love to hear from anyone else booked on this trip or anyone that has already been?

I am going on the 'expedition' in june. Really looking forward to it but wondered about the boat in terms of cabin size , clothing and info about the whole trip. Where did you go? Would you recommend it?

If you are going on the Fram it is a fine ship, well fitted, nice public areas and generally spacious with a very uncrowded feeling. Cabins are just as shown in the brochure but well fitted with hanging and cupboard space.

Food good with enough variety, entertainment limited to very low key crew entertainment.

We hired boots, comfy and warm. Pack with loads of layers, it is likely to be cold. Bring binoculars to view wildlife, sometimes Polar Bears are little more than white pebbles in th distance. It's a very interesting place, with, windswept and desolate.
