Always an ambition to visit Cape Horn, Antarctica and the Falkland Islands. Mission accomplished helped by extraordinary weather on Antarctica. The imagery, wildlife and "the silence" was indescribable. The Midnatsol service was outstanding and the specialist team knew their stuff and shared their knowledge and experience brilliantly. Difficult decisions had to be made in the Falklands due to worsening weather. The Captain made the correct decision to head north early.If you are insistent on a full itinerary being completed then avoid an expedition cruise to extreme parts of the planet!!
An unexpected but much welcomed personal service was an interest I have in a sunken vessel in the estuary of the River Plate. The Captain, together with the port authority, located the position of the vessel. We sailed past the buoy marking the position. Mission accomplished.
All transfers were well organised. The Sheraton Santiago Hotel was excellent. The Montevidao Colombia left much to be desired!!!
Comfortable and very clean. The room service was excellent by two charming staff. Towel sculptures adorned the cabin!!
