Exodus Travel Labrador/Greenland by polar ship

The company gets good reviews, but from the US it is more challenging to find much info since it is UK based. Has anyone taken this August itinerary?
Thank you!

Exodus may be UK based for home office, but I have always considered it a global tour company. Why would nonUS reviews not be sufficient? What more information do you need?
I took a peak. Looks pretty good, but just as a suggestion, perhaps consider what thje priority is....Greenland or Labrador? There is a Cdn ship that leaves Quebec City and does the mail drops in many ports of Quebec and Labrador, or do a drive trip of Newfoundland with some of Labrador by road.
I only know of land tours people have taken of Greenland and that was entering from Norway (I think).
A quick google search shows numerous companies, often from Canada, offering Labrador/Greenland combos...for comparison.

Note to MariaF: I haven't heard of a marine drop for mail in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Can you provide more details, or a link?

@Southam, perhaps I should have said 'cargo' rather than mail. I read about it while researching about 5 years ago and I have lost some of my links. A search came up with this page and the closest I can find is the service on the Bella Desgagnes...but she sails predominately Quebec outports rather than Labrador. Some other marine options are mentioned. https://www.quebecmaritime.ca/en/what-to-do/cruises

Labrador has started a new ferry service to Northern Labrador communities, primarily for cargo, but it doesn't really spell out any type of on board sleeping options for those who are walk on passengers, though walk ons are allowed. https://www.releases.gov.nl.ca/releases/2019/tw/0709n02.aspx It looks more like a freighter adventure..... or for a Canadian with an RV.

I appreciated the suggestion and found those sites after your post. Agreed I need to focus on either Newfoundland/Labrador or Greenland with limited time, specific date range and of course $! "Swoop" has been very responsive for some Greenland coastal options currently considering. More thanks! Interesting idea as a future option...

Would you be interested in this option? https://www.eagle-eye.com/Greenland-Wild-Labrador-Cruise
I am a birdwatcher, so would be very interested in next year's trip because of the naturalist they have on board. Half the cost but similar itinerary to Exodus, and over more days. Still not a lot of Greenland but seems more logically built to the Exodus one. As it starts in Greenland, take the money you save and do a Greenland 'pretrip'. Maybe this is too bird focused for you, but the trip and company's ethics resonated with me.
