  • Destination: South America

2 outstanding excursions a day, in gorgeous sites with very competent and helpfull staff. We could not dream of a better cruise to discover Tierra del Fuego glaciers, fauna and hike an hour on Cape Horn.

We spent 4 hrs in Punta Arenas and we not thrilled by the downtown. Plaza de Armas is fun.

Embarkation was not fun at all. We had to board buses to reach the ship. 20 minutes for just 100 meters. Bus was absolutely full, we were packed like sardinas...and waited and waited. The first minutes with Australis were terrible and give a very bad first impresseion. Once on board, everything was perfect. Staff was very competent and gave great information on suurounding nature and upcoming excursions.

First time we visited the bridge and the engine room during the cruise. The captain showed several times and had kind words with everybody.

Also 200 guests only makes a big difference, developping a better sense of community.

We will strongly recommend Autralis cruises to our parents and friends who want to discover this part of the world
