Cabin:

This was the last part of a Patagonia adventure. Glaciers, fjords, etc were all breathtaking. Guides were excellent and we enjoyed the expeditions (although the were a little short for us). We would have liked to spend more time seeing penguins and hiking. There was quite a bot of variation in the fitness level of the people onboard. We seemed to be in the mid range for age but more fit and able to do more than we did. The cabins were clean and comfortable, and the staff was friendly and helpful, especially when our ride didn't appear at the end of the cruise. I

One negative was the food. For the price we were paying the food should have been better. For some meals the "good" desserts were snatched up by the early eaters and not replenished. The steam-table selections for breakfast were pretty unappealing, although the baed goods were reasonable.

In all, we would definitely do it again, as there is no other way to see this magnificent part of the world.
