I’d like to commend Discovery World Cruises (1800 SE 10th Ave., Ste. 205, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316; phone 866/623-2689 or visit www.discoveryworldcruises.com) for their excellent attention to passenger safety and comfort during our January ’04 Antarctica cruise aboard the MV Discovery, especially on the Zodiac excursions.

As a person with back, knee and foot problems, I was apprehensive about this trip. However, with two crew members on the boarding platform attached to the ship and two crew members in the Zodiac, plus personnel on shore, I was able to make all the transfers comfortably and safely without any concern for wrenching my back.

In addition, the lecturers on board were truly excellent. They had in-depth experience in the Antarctic and communicated their knowledge effectively with excellent slides.

I’d recommend this MV Discovery cruise to anyone. It was marvelous!
