My main interest was to visit the beautiful fiords in the South of Chile from a cruise that would also allow for some land visits in order to get in touch with the local nature - glaciers, specific flora and fauna. All these goals were fulfilled to perfection. Furthermore, the ship was most comfortable, large, clean and beautifully decorated; cabins were excellent, similar to rooms in a four stars + hotel, each with an ensuite bathroom; food was delicious and plentiful, with many choices - also for vegetarians or for passengers with other special diets; the staff was professional and kind at the same time; all the passengers were polite people, but so diverse that it was easy to make friends with those that sheared the same interests. Last but not least, security was always the first consideration, both at the time of deciding when to navigate - the cruise started a few hours late because the sea was a bit too rough - and about the sanitary measures to be taken as Covid was already present in many countries - our body temperature was measured before we were allowed into the cruise and we also had to ask a health questionnaire. This cruise is one of the best trips I ever did.

Cabin Review

Excellent, large, beautifully decorated, with a large panoramic window that allowed perfect views and with a large enough ensuite bathroom.
