Nice!

On cruisemapper, it seems you are still far from land.

Not to make a big deal about an issue nothing to do with the trip but
Huh? They were on the boat already this past M"S?
I actaully saw people doing Kiddush Levnah tonight in J-lem. Confused since I thought you're supposed to do it on M"S. Is their something with Teves that you do it before?
Not to dissect the frog, but zmanim are all kinds of crazy and confusing down there, you never really know what time or day it is

What time is Sunset where you are. Alot of the pics like the kiddush levana video have a certain darkness to it, yet its nor really dark.
Does it get real dark? How long does it last for before it starts getting light?

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Seems the Falklands detour has them getting to Antarctica at least a day late.

According to the Alter Rebbe, that's the way it's done in many places.
Even places like London, they follow that system for about 2 months in the summer.
It's not that they're the same time, rather since the sun doesn't go that far below the horizon, so there is no Alos. The AR says we use Chatzos for all things which must end before the night is over.

Will you hit Antarctica before shabbos? Any way to set up a Tchum to allow a disembarkation on shabbos?

Would be a shame if after everything, there was only Sunday and Monday to be able to actually spend time in Antarctica.

not a shame- would be worth going for two days for sure!
and technically I think you can make the techum to extend a total of 4000 amos if you do it right. but that isnt so practical here
