ABS-CBN broadcaster Karen Davila paid tribute to the Filipino crew onboard the ship of her Arctic expedition.

Karen took to social media to put the spotlight on the Filipino crew she met during her trip.

"THE ARCTIC… FILIPINO CREW  What an honor to do a meet & greet with our Pinoy crew aboard the Silversea Cloud Expedition!" she said.


According to the TV Patrol anchor, there are more than a hundred Filipino crew members in the cruise ship.

"Of 219 crewmembers, 106 are Pinoys assigned in different areas from technical, engineering, F&B, entertainment, housekeeping & expedition team! The highest being the First Officer & Restaurant Manager!! Ang gagaling ninyo! I felt so proud being with you guys," she shared.

Karen then extended her gratitude to the crew for expressing their love for ABS-CBN.

"Salamat at hanggang dulo ng mundo, laman pa rin ng puso ninyo ang ABSCBN, mga kapamilya  Thank you @silverseacruises for appreciating Filipino talent," she posted.

Karen's followers were quick to react to her post and commended the broadcaster for dedicating a post for the Filipino crew members.

"This made me so proud. As a wife of a luxury cruise Chief Purser, this is the first time to see a Filipino guest with so much pride in our seafarers! Kudos to you Ms. Davila!" one netizen commented.

"Our modern heroes, the OFWs, so proud of them and happy for you Ms. Karen to have experienced all this with our OFWs making your journey more memorable," another netizen posted.

"So proud of our kababayan all over the world, thanks Ms. Karen for featuring them, our amazing heroes," another netizen said.

In another post, Karen shared that it was her first time on a cruise ship. She also shared the reason why they chose to board an expedition.

"THE ARCTIC made even more special with our @silverseacruises experience  My first cruise ever, I wanted to try something different for my family’s first trip 2 years after the pandemic. We chose an expedition for the adventure & because it would be on a much smaller ship," she said.

She also enumerated her favorite moments inside the ship sharing, "I absolutely loved the intimate feel on board - the hot chocolate every morning, the veranda in the rooms, the library, gym & even the salon! The restaurants were absolutely stellar ️ It was a mix of adventure everyday and rest on board!"

During her Arctic cruise, Karen and her family explored different places in Norway.

In one of her post, Karen shared snapshots of herself hiking in Svalbard.

"THE ARCTIC. Hiking in Spitsbergen, Svalbard. Mirror like pools of water below ice capped mountains. Such a purity to nature’s unspoiled canvass. Truly, to walk in nature is to witness God’s thousand miracles," she posted last June 27.

She also came across polar bears during her trip.

"What an AMAZING moment! The POLAR BEAR, The King Of The Arctic. The polar bear is elusive and some expeditions aren’t fortunate enough to see one! We were all on our zodiacs coming from our last glacier expedition when the bear monitors caught this lone ranger!! We actually saw 2 polar bears but this one was right within eye sight- no long lens needed!" she shared on June 29.

Karen also saw walruses during their Arctic cruise. 

"The Svalbard walrus population is estimated at only 2,000 animals. Most of the adult walruses here are males. They have spotted more females in recent years, but there is sexual segregation outside the breeding season. They’re also not the preferred meal for the Arctic Polar bear nor whales - always in search of calves," she relayed. 

"Such a privilege to be around these animals up close. A poignant reminder that we humans share the planet with God’s creatures," she added.
