I'll use this page to show off the boat, the Lyubov Orlova. I got lucky and had a cabin to myself, and we all got lucky in that the boat was really comfortable.

We were well fed on the boat as well. These are some of the dishes we had, and all are typical of the quality of the kitchen staff. Three courses every lunch and dinner. We needed a fair bit of energy.

Final dessert

And the ship's crew and the expedition team, posing for a final picture, but I'll include it here on the boat page at the start anyway.
