MV Polar Star
It was a great adventure and experience, although I was sick as you will find out on these pages I have thoroughly enjoyed myself with the help of my wife, Hui Chin, the Polar Star Management, Staff, Crew the Expedition Team and our fellow passengers.
Thank you very much and God Bless You All.
My special thanks to Hui Chin, Doctor Suzy, Hannah, Captain Leszek Slawski, Hotel Manager Florin Blaj, for their extraordinary understanding, help and humanity.
Thank you very much and God Bless You All.
At the end of our voyage we had the opportunity to get a copy of a journal of our expedition, records and photographic records.
While stressing the copyrights of the authors of these records and photos, I have reprinted some of them, with the Team Leader's kind permission, strictly as a record of our journey and as a advertising or 'teaser' for future expeditions.
If I misunderstood the permission, I will remove these material immediately on notice.

"Virtually every visitor to the ice returns to
"civilisation" converted into a passionate, life-long South Polar
Ambassador. The enriched lives of these privileged few will never
again be the same for they have truly experienced paradise on earth.
That such a wondrous, unspoiled place still exists on this beleaguered
planet, is one of the real miracles of the 20th century. The
indescribable splendour of the magnificent final frontier and its
remarkable wildlife must be forever regarded as an irreplaceable
international treasure that justly deserves to be protected indefinitely
for future generations."
"Experience for yourself the thrill of discovery. Imagine yourself as an explorer of the past and venture into the unknown.
Imagine the Antarctic - teeming with wildlife - penguins, whales, seals and seabirds in a dramatic setting of mountain peaks, glaciers and stunning expanses of a white landscape. At the opposite end of the globe, the Arctic is a polar environment of spectacular fjords, huge open landscapes, remote communities, a history of tenacious people and beautiful shy wildlife - seabirds, whales, walrus, Musk ox, Arctic fox, Arctic hare and the majestic Polar Bear. Join us from Spitsbergen - the Arctic of Norway, to Greenland and follow the Viking trail to northern Canada. We visit each Polar Region during their summer season. Between these two Polar Seasons we explore the mystique of the islands of the Atlantic - Macronesia and Azores, and the remote coastal areas of England, Scotland, Ireland, and Norway. Our itineraries are unique and focused on the "up close and personal experience" with wildlife and local cultures. We venture where other ships just sail by!
Your voyage of discovery is today more comfortable as you board our highest ice-class ship, the M/V Polar Star to discover these compelling, distant lands in the safety and comfort of your "home away from home". She is the ideal expedition ship with experienced and friendly staff, good facilities, spacious on-deck viewing, unique open bridge policy and a fleet of ten 12-man Zodiac inflatable landing craft to take you ever closer. You personal experience is further enhanced by our team of onboard specialists - their passion will shine through as they lecture and guide you in these amazing destinations.
Let your adventure begin now - browse our expeditions and let your imagination take flight."
One of the comments on the same page says:
