The Expedition Team will maintain a keen eye so that if an opportunity arises and conditions allow, the Captain will attempt to position the vessel accordingly. At all times, itineraries and ports of call are subject to the Captain’s discretion based on prevailing weather and ice conditions. Wildlife sightings and wilderness highlights on any itinerary cannot be guaranteed.
