Its the only way to see the Chilean coast inlets and scenery short of having your own boat. There are no roads or habitation in most of the areas we visited. Excursions by zodiac to see wildlife and glaciers were amazing. The ship was small by cruise ship standards but was therefore able to sail in confined fiords and through narrow passes.

The food and service was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The ships captain was informative and approachable. The company issued everyone with appropriate clothing which was just as well because that part of the world has heavy weather at most times of the year. If you needed items of clothing or spares for your photography the ships shop was well stocked.

Improvements are possible in some detailed areas. The graphic display of the ships position was poor. The exterior of the window could have been cleaned.

Vista suite Cabin was compact but very comfortable, quiet and frequently tidied by staff. Butler service was excellent.
