The Antarctic Cruise Experience

Aloha Everyone,

Capt. Todd McBain is an excellent speaker. He is well read and of course well traveled and knows of a wide variety of subject matters at a very personal levels.

His presentation on “The Antarctic Cruise Experience” was one of the topics many of us are interested in. Capt. McBain has navigated through one of the most treacherous waters crossing from Buenos Aires to Antarctic. The Princess Theater was packed and when Captain mentioned that his next Antarctic Cruise will be scheduled for January 2025, some were eager to sign up without knowing the details.

J.J. and I are very interested in going to Antarctic. We are always cognizant with current worldwide events that could impact dates of departure and return, duration of cruising as well as costs associated with air travel for the return trip. 

Antarctic is one of our bucket lists and we would like to see if all details will fall into place.

I must add that we learned that red colored ice is actually defecation from penguins. Penguins eat whatever that are available including fish, krill, squid and crustaceans. Fishermen can tell that there’s a large group of crustaceans when they see red colored ice on glaciers.

Aloha -- Cathi
