Sail Date: Dec 2016
Cabin:

We did a tour in south Patagonia, and after the visit to Perito Moreno (3 days), Torres del Paine NP (4 days) we moved to Punta Arenas to embark on the beautiful Stella Australis to navigate across the fjords of the southern Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego to Cabo Horn and finally Ushuaia. Our cabin was a luxury and expensive AAsup, very confortable, but also the smaller ones were nice and sufficientely confortable. The food was excellent (self service at breakfast and lunch, with large availibility and menu dinner served at table. During the journey we were able to see astonishing landscapes with the glaciers reaching the sea, magic lights and stars filled sky during the night. The excursions by Zodiacs, with landing in amazing places and short walking tour, have been very interesting, guided by excellent guys ready to explain and to answer to all the possible questions about mountains, glaciers, trees, flowers, animals ....We had also the chance to land at Cabo Horn, and that has been a nice experience. We saw penguins very close by the shore, cormorans, 3 whales, dolphins. The navigation has been very soft all over the trip.

Definetely this cruise is unforgettable, mainly for the landscapes and the excursions, but I must say, also the crew was very helpfull any moment. The cruise is costy, but I will recommend if you like natural landscape because it is unique.
