Cabin:

Hadn’t been to this part of South America as there are many sea days and unpredictable weather.

The weather was amazingly calm and we were able to stop at all ports. Seeing penguins in the Falklands was the highlight as was the Falklands Museum. The drivers, the museum volunteers, the clerks at the information store were so friendly and welcoming. Also enjoyed Ushuaia and the catamaran cruise to see sea lions and penguins. Also enjoyed the Nature and History of scenic Los Lagos excursion.

Can not recommend the included Highlights of Puerto Madryn and Welsh tea as it was a 1 1/2 hour bus ride each way (seeing a desert) for very delicious tea and sweets. We could have had tea on the ship. Nothing else to do there.

Cabin Review

Excellent service as it was always clean and unobtrusive.

Port Reviews

Ushuaia (Tierra del Fuego)

Catamaran cruise to see sea lions and penguins. Also saw two young whales and porpoises. Good guide.

Stanley

Excellent as you can walk near penguins but they don’t notice you. Also great museum in Port Stanley. My favorite port.
