YAMAL is a smashing ship--powerful, comfortable, and sea worthy. The Captain and his crew, too, were very determined, careful, and considerate. We hit a wall of ice unbelievably thick and attacked it 6 times to cut a path to the North Pole. I loved this action plus the sound of the ship's bow breaking the sea ice to open a path for progress. When we stopped to observe the polar bears, there was utter silence--a time when you know how awesome the earth is at that latitude. I felt like I was at the top of the world! I especially enjoyed the tour of the operation of the nuclear powered engine, room; meeting the Captain on a small group basis and having champagne or wine (the ship's photographer Gordon, from the States, will send me a photo of this occasion as well as us dancing in a circle at the North Pole). I SPOTTED 10 POLAR BEARS; one of which came right to the ship's bow so I think I have a fairly good photo of him even though I am not a photographer. ...Publish dateFri, 16 May 2014 15:51:33 +0400AuthorКонтактная информацияContact personKitty, USAEmailinfo@nordictravel.ru
