Review summary

the majority of the ports where wonderful to see and to get a local flavor of the country. Our favorites were Falkland Islands, the days at sea cruising the Chilean fjords- magnificent glaciers!. The penguin colony at Bluff Cove was great. Iguazu Falls day trip was fantasias - not to be missed!! Puerto Chacabuco was a beautiful scenic ride and very good tour guide as was the stop for lunch at a lodge with the mountains and waterfall as a backdrop.

Well worth the time and experience. The cruise was relaxed and the staff were wonderful.
