There is one seating for all passengers at breakfast, lunch, and dinner and the restaurant has an open seating policy that encourages passengers to mingle with like-minded Antarctic explorers and share their experiences.

An assortment of freshly baked cookies and/or pastries are offered each afternoon. There is also a selection of hot and cold snacks available in the lounge during cocktail hour, expedition activities permitting.

A visit to Antarctica is a once in a lifetime experience. Quark excels in this region of the world. There were 27 naturalists with various specialties for 130 passengers. The Zodiac activities were well organized and efficient. Special special place to visit. (Copied from Trip Advisor)

We had three generations of family aboard the World Explorer for a trip of a lifetime to South Georgia and Antartica to see penguins. All the staff was amazing, food was terrific, Quark expedition staff was world class, and accommodations on boat couldn't have been better. All cabins had balconies which was a plus for a 16 day adventure. (Copied from Trip Advisor)

Simply amazing! Efficiency and friendliness of staff and guides. Willingness to make every excursion special. We ticked off the big 13. Add a blue sky glacier day with some calving and you have it all. (Copied from Swoop Antarctica)
