Norwegian Sun

November 2015 - Norwegian Sun to South America

Amazing Vacation

The cruise around the southern tip of South America was truly an unforgettable experience. The ports of call were each unique, and introduced us to a variety of cultures, geography, temperatures, wildlife, cuisine, and people. The guest lecturer on board the Norwegian Sun gave very interesting talks on each port as well as the wildlife and birds we might encounter. The lecturer also gave pointers on how to prepare to be safe in each port.

 

The other cruise guests were interesting to meet and get to know on the long journey. 

 

Highlights including seeing glaciers, volcanos, whales, porpoises, albatrosses, and penguins. We even got to watch a penguin hatch out of it's egg! (at about 3 feet away from us)

 

 The staff on the ship all made us feel valued and important. They were attentive, helpful, and friendly.

 

I would definitely recommend this cruise and this cruise line!

erpaetz's Tips

Buenos Aires, Argentina - Take a city tour to see the main tourist sites and then walk up and down the pedestrian only street, Florida. But be aware of thieves at all times, and don't make yourself an easy target!
Montevideo, Uruguay - Puerto Mercado with all the barbequing meats was mouth watering to tour.
Ushuaia, Tierra Del Fuego, Argentina - It was interesting to take the city tour on the old double decker bus, and then to tour the penitentiary that has now been converted into a museum.
Punta Arenas, Chile - If you want to see penguins, go to the Island tour, not the Otoway colony. The Otoway penguins did not show up this year.
Puerto Chacabuco, Chile - Make sure to go up the gorgeous Simpson River Valley to Coyhaquie. Beautiful scenery, waterfalls, river gorges, variety of terrain and biomes.
Valparaiso (Santiago), Chile - Walking tour with "Tours for Tips" was highly informative. Pre-register online for free! 3 hour tour and included a ride on the funicular.
