  3. Viking Jupiter
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. The Viking staff is so accommodating, friendly, thoughtful, and thorough. They make the guests feel special. Food was outstanding at all the restaurants. I am a seafood lover and enjoyed shrimp, lobster, escargots, mussels, raw tuna, and crab claws. The British menu at Chef’s table was a real change from the usual items. We used credit cards and American dollars for tips and purchases even getting dollars back as change. I would recommend bringing lots of $1s and $5s for tips. The entertainment was good but I would enjoy more shows like The Beatles, ABBA, and Decades. Great lecturers especially Tom Macan.

Wonderful staff, food, and weather
