As the Mundy team long to be travelling again, we take some time to reflect on some of our favourite cruising moments…

For me it has to be a helicopter ride in Antarctica. The scale of the landscape is amazing and the remoteness makes it feel like you're on another planet. Seeing the vastness of the continent stretched out to the horizon from a few thousand feet above the snow was just incredible.

Scenic Eclipse - Helicopter in Antarctica

Cathy Ellis, Cruise Consultant

The South Pacific was everything I'd imagined - beautiful islands of towering green volcanic peaks, white sandy beaches and crystal-clear lagoons, with the added bonus of wonderfully friendly and warm-hearted people. In Vairao, the scenery was amazing, we could snorkel in the crystal clear waters, and I was lucky enough to spot whales in the distance, their tails crashing in the water.

After an early morning alarm call, we sailed through the narrow inlet to reach Alaska's Tracy Arm Glacier. Sailing so close to the sheer cliffs it was like you could almost reach out and touch them, whilst in the background I could hear the sound of waterfalls crashing down. But nothing prepared me for the amazing sight at the end, the most almighty glacier. We stayed for over two hours, slowly turning so we could get the best views. I have to admit I was quite overwhelmed by its beauty.

Approaching the thunderous King George Falls on an incredible cruise of Australia's Kimberley region was the highlight of a once-in-a-lifetime trip. A placid zodiac ride along the river made the roaring waters even more extraordinary, and at the foot of the falls we got close enough to the action to be engulfed in foam. We were even able to trek to the top of the falls and swim in a lagoon with views over the stunning scenery of the impossibly grand surroundings.

Being able to travel around Brazil as a family with my young daughter was so wonderful, and enjoying the most incredible food and a glass of wine, served on our balcony as the sun set, whilst gently sailing away from Ilhabela, is a memory I'll treasure.

After a rainy day in the Norwegian Fjords, a watery sun emerged about 10pm creating a magical light, with glittering reflections off the glassy fjord and long shadows stretching across vibrant green meadows. In the Observation Lounge, a virtuoso pianist played Grieg's 'Piano Concerto in A minor'.
