We have reached Antarctica! Today onboard National Geographic Explorer, we finished our crossing of the Drake Passage and made it to Dallmann Bay. Our Captain Peik Aalto welcomed us with a traditional Captain’s Cocktail Party. By the time we were seated for dinner, icebergs were gently gliding by the windows. After dinner, the ship cruised into the smaller Fournier Bay. We took to the decks amongst softly falling snow to get close views of icebergs and to peer at mountains through the fog. We have made it, and it is beautiful.
