"Absolutely fantastic. The naturalist guide on the Beluga was great. The staff was attentive - service was personalized.  The crew could not have been any better!!!  Very good food and accommodations. Food was healthy, fresh, delicious. Awesome. One of the best trips we have ever taken. Highly recommend the Beluga." - Mary Turney, USA
