Sail Date: Oct 2016
Cabin:

We took this cruise because we heard how beautiful Chilean Patagonia is. This is a land and sea expedition, We had previously taken a Lindblad expedition and was happy with it, so we were sure this one would also be topnotch. My husband and I were really disappointed as were other guests.

They accommodated my diet for BLD but not snacks or special functions.

Torres del Paine National Park was beautiful & we got to hike every day there. There was communication between Lindblad staff and staff at the hotel regarding my diet. Needless to say it was very frustrating and time consuming to get some food I could eat.

Cabin Review

Cabin 3

Our room was over the engine and was very loud so not much sleep!! I noticed another couple complained about their room and were moved to another one. I asked about a move but was told they were full.
