Finally, the doors were opened and we were allowed back on deck. It was freezing but the fresh air was fantastic! We spotted our first tabular icebergs and endless pack ice. Our sturdy ship just barreled through the ice, with broken pieces scraping down the side of the ship by our windows reminiscent of that scene in Titanic when the bergy bits are landing on the deck. Given there were no other ships in sight, you just had to trust the old Russian engineering and remember the many voyages of Ortelius prior to our trip. Okay, now JUMP! Enjoy those waves! We spotted our first Adelie Penguins and some Humpback Whales.
