Jan 09, 2019 - National Geographic Orion
Sometimes in Antarctica, conditions of ice and the ferocious weather cause original plans to be changed and alternative plans to be put into place instead. Today was one such day. Due to a thick band of ice, National Geographic Orion was forced to cancel our original morning landing and instead find another island for our guests to make landfall to visit penguins. Upon hearing the news, some were disappointed. However, it did not take long for frowns to turn to smiles as we visited about 500,000 nesting Adelie penguins on Paulette Island.
