The ship awoke on the productive Southern Ocean immersed in fog and surrounded by icebergs, a navigational dream for the bridge team. As we sailed away from South Georgia towards our next destination, visibility increased for spells, offering brief glimpses of ice, albatrosses, petrels, and fin whales to those close to the windows. Fortunately, there was a rich line up of presentations, including ones by our guest scientists and our National Geographic photographer.
