Merry Christmas every one from Neko Harbour on the main continent of antarctica,another early morning walking the decks the sun is shining on the mountains covered with very deep snow, this harbour is surrounded by glacier where large chucks of ice breaking off and falling into the sea.

We woke up close to eight o’clock and headed to breakfast in the main dining room. It is in the rear of the ship and has amazing views.

The breakfast onboard is very generous. There’s great variety...
