Review summary

Cruising along the glaciers and watching them from my stateroom was fantastic. I've cruised Alaska but saw tons more on this trip. We saw whales, dolphins, and seals at sea and penguins, llamas, sheep, and a rugged ranch life on land. The people were extremely friendly and most merchants took US dollars. I may consider doing this cruise again.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Since we were cruising down the channels with the most interesting on the port side I chose a portside balcony.

Ship tip

I liked the ship because it is about their smallest about 1900. It is an older ship but well maintained. Navigation throughout is a breeze.
