We had a Lanai room on this ship. For this itinerary it was fabulous.
We boarded the ship in Valpariso. Cruise was full of scenery. Chilean fjords were beautiful. It did get colder as we went down the coast. When I first saw Antarctica it was breathtaking, penguins were amazing - just swimming beside the ship.We saw whales and sea lions as well.
Amazingly we were able to get into Falkland Islands - best weather they had had in awhile. We saw rockhopper penguins and they came so close to us (they were wild so we had to move slowly and not cross a rope that was down)
We were able to see Elephant seals and sealions on the Valdez peninsula in Argentina. We also had a great day in Uruguay.
We did the post-cruise with Holland America and saw Iguazu falls and Buenos Aires - I highly recommend this option.
