  3. Stella Australis
This cruise was at the end of a two week trip to Chile. It was a great way to see the fjords and glaciers of Tierra del Fuego. Each day there were excursions off the ship by zodiac to either hike or view wildlife. The staff on board were knowledgeable and friendly. Each evening there was an educational program or movie to prepare us for the next day. The staff handled the multi-lingual guests in a very efficient manner. We were assigned a table for all of our meals, which could have been a problem, but we ended up with wonderful table mates whom we really enjoyed. The only two "downsides" were that we, as non-drinkers, felt like we were subsidizing all the free drinking on board, and we are also vegetarians/pescatarians and those menu options were somewhat uninspired. Two highlights were watching calving at Pia Glacier and exploring Cape Horn.

Fabulous way to see the fjords and glaciers of Tierra del Fuego!

Cabin Review

Cabin 338
The cabin was larger than we expected, with plenty of room for the two of us to move around without bumping into each other. We had a large window with a good view.
