Sailing Itinerary

Note: Cruise itineraries are subject to change. Please verify ports and times directly with the cruise line.

Day 1 Buenos Aires

Overview

This fabulous city is renowned for its sophistication, although travelers expecting a more 'South American' experience are sometimes disappointed with its European feel. Argentina is one Latin American country where Europeans and North Americans can feel at ease and travel relatively inconspicuously. An interest in soccer and some nimble foot skills may be all you need to feel like a local.

Day 2 Port of Call Buenos Aires Departure 7:00p.m.

Day 3 Port of Call Montevideo Arrival 8:00a.m. Departure 7:30p.m.

Overview

Home to almost 50% of the nation's population, Montevideo is a modern metropolis with a historical old town dating back to colonial times. Surrounding the whole city lies an uninterrupted stretch of white sandy beach. Highlights include Ciudad Vieja (Old Town) with its 18th century buildings, the vibrant Mercado del Puerto, and the bustling commercial activity of Avenida 18 de Julio and its cultural offerings (theatres, museums and art galleries)

Day 4 Port of Call Punta del Este Arrival 8:00a.m. Departure 4:00p.m.

Overview

At the beginning of the 19th century, Punta del Este was a vast semi-deserted region only visited by sailors and fishermen. Today this coastal town, commonly referred to as the St Tropez of South America, attracts close to 300,000 visitors each year. Opposite the large peninsula separating the two waters of the Atlantic Ocean and Rio de la Plata, lie the enchanted islands of Isla Gorriti and Isla de los Lobos, inhabited by one of the world's largest sea-lion colonies.

Day 5 Cruising
Day 6 Port of Call Puerto Madryn Arrival 9:00a.m. Departure 6:00p.m.

Overview

Located on the eastern coast of the Province of Chubut, Puerto Madryn overlooks the blue waters of the Golfo Nuevo, where wind is music and silence accompanies the language of birds. At present, the population is approximately of 50.000 inhabitants. The urban area is surrounded by hills and dunes. Its long coast boulevard, its wide paved streets, and its beautiful avenue turn Puerto Madryn into a modern progressive city. During the day, the visitor will feel obliged to walk along the coast avenue to observe the facilities of the port and the serene waters of the gulf. The transparency of the calm deep waters and its varied fauna make it an ideal place for subaquatic sports fans, among them lovers of scuba diving. Because of that Puerto Madryn is considered the Argentine capital of subaquatic activities.

Day 7 Cruising
Day 8 Port of Call Stanley/Falklands Arrival 8:00a.m. Departure 5:00p.m.

Overview

Stanley is a picturesque town of about 1700 people. Brightly colored wriggly-tin roofs contrast strikingly with the grays and browns of the surrounding hills. The town is named after Lord Stanley, Secretary of State for the Colonies 1841 - 1844. He ordered the main settlement to be removed from Port Louis to the Port Jackson area and Governor Richard Clement Moody completed the move and took up official residence in Stanley on the 15th July 1844. Your first point of call should be the newly completed Jetty Center - situated just off the Public Jetty, this is where you'll get all the information you'll need on what to do, how to get about and where to stay. For anyone interested in history, a visit to Stanley will be a rich and rewarding experience. A maritime history trail around the harbor leads you to famous wrecks. Old stone cottages mingle with wriggly-tin houses - there are the amazing Jubilee Villas - a piece of British Victorian suburbia in the South Atlantic and the Chelsea Pensioners houses in Pioneer row (brought here in the late 1840's). There are also more recent reminders of the conflict in 1982 - Stanley may be small but it is filled with interest. Your visit would not be complete without a visit to the museum in Holdfast Road (so called because it was here on the 14th June 1982 that Maj. Gen. Sir Jeremy Moore ordered his troops to 'hold fast' until he had negotiated the Argentine surrender. The museum is packed with a huge variety of exhibits ranging from an 1896 Symphonium to whalebones. The stated objective of the museum is to present a taste of the many aspects of the Falklands' rich and varied history including Domestic, Maritime, Social, Military and Natural History - it is not to be missed!

Day 9 Cruising
Day 10 Port of Call Antarctica Arrival 8:00a.m. Departure 6:00p.m.

Overview

Antarctica is the fifth largest continent and is asymmetrically centered on the South Pole and almost entirely within the Antarctic Circle. Antarctica consists of two major regions: W Antarctica (c.2,500,000 sq mi/6,475,000 sq km), a mountainous archipelago that includes the Antarctic Peninsula, and E Antarctica (c.3,000,000 sq mi/7,770,000 sq km), geologically a continental shield. They are joined into a single continental mass by an ice sheet thousands of feet thick. At the seaward margins of the ice sheet masses of ice break off and float away as icebergs, leaving ice cliffs. Where the outward creep of the ice is channeled into ice streams (zones of more rapid flow), great floating ice tongues project into the sea; where mountains retard outward movement, the flow is channeled into great valley glaciers. Less than 5% of Antarctica is free of ice; these areas include mountain peaks, arid dry valleys, small coastal areas, and islands. There is no native human population in Antarctica, nor are there any large land animals. Few species are adapted to the antarctic environment, but individuals of these few species are numberless.

Day 14 Cruising
Day 15 Drake Passage

Overview

The Drake Passage has earned a place in history as having some of the roughest sea weather on the planet. The Drake Passage occurs where the fast flowing southern ocean waters are squeezed between the continental land masses of South America and Antarctica. Storms frequently whip the ocean into a dark grey turbulent, heaving mass of water, renowned for sinking many a ship. Even with today's advances in ocean faring, storms in the Drake Passage can strand ships on either side. Rounding Cape Horn after a long battle with the ocean was always a welcome relief for sailors. For us, sighting Cape Horn meant an end to the endlessly rolling ocean.

Day 16 Port of Call Ushuaia Arrival 9:00a.m. Departure 3:30p.m.

Overview

Ushuaia is the southernmost city in the world, on the shores of the Beagle Channel and surrounded by the Martial Mounts. It is the capital of the Tierra del Fuego, Antarctica and Southern Atlantic Islands Province, and its superlative location allows you to enjoy sea, mountains and forests at the same time. Besides, it is a great place for shopping: the whole island is a tax free zone, thus you can find lots of imported goods along with regional products.

Day 16 Glacier Alley

Overview

The most amazing stretch of the Beagle Channel, Glacier Alley is a string of tidewater glaciers that tumble down to the edge of the sea from the massive Darwin Ice Field. Arrayed along the north shore of the channel and surrounded by snowcapped peaks, most of the glaciers were named after European countries -- Holland, Italy, Germany, Spain and France -- by the 19th-century explorers who first mapped the region.

Day 16 Beagle Channel

Overview

The Beagle Channel was named after the ship on which Captain Robert Fitzroy and Sir Charles Darwin sailed during their 19th century explorations. The channel runs through the southern part of Tierra del Fuego forming part of the Chilean-Argentine border. Ancient glaciers punctuate the snow-capped mountains on either side of the channel. All along this "Glaciers Avenue" several breathtaking glaciers can be enjoyed as Glacier Watching.

Day 17 Port of Call Punta Arenas Arrival 10:00a.m. Departure 10:00p.m.

Overview

This is Patagonia's largest and most commercially important city. Located on the western side of the Strait of Magellan with a superb port and the only large airport in the area, it is the major hub for boat transport through the strait and research vessels on their way to or from Antarctica. For the visitor, Punta Arenas is better known as the gateway to Torres del Paine National Park, 400 kilometers to the northwest. This unique town grew up on wool and international shipping before the Panama Canal opened. In the late 19th century, huge fortunes made by sheep farming left the city with distinguished mansions, some of them now museums and other monuments. Summer cruise ships from Punta Arenas travel to Antarctica, where Chile claims a sector of the icebound continent. You can also begin a scenic ferry cruise through the Chilean fjords from Puerto Natales, sailing north to Puerto Montt, in the southern mainland lake region.

Day 17 Magellan Strait

Overview

Magellan, Strait of, c.330 mi (530 km) long and 2 1/2 to 15 mi (4–24 km) wide, separating South America from Tierra del Fuego and other islands south of the continent. Except for a few miles at its eastern end in Argentina, it passes through Chile. The strait, discovered by Ferdinand Magellan in 1520, was important in the days of sailing ships, especially before the building of the Panama Canal, and is still used by ships rounding South America. One of the most scenic waterways in the world, it affords an inland passage protected from almost continuous ocean storms. However, the strait is often foggy. The only city on the strait is Punta Arenas on Tierra del Fuego.

Day 18 Cruising
Day 18 Amalia Glacier

Overview

Amalia Glacier is more dramatic than Pio XI, but getting to and from Pio is by far more interesting and beautiful. Seas continue calm, sky partly cloudy but otherwise fair with no rain.

Day 19 Chilean Fjords

Overview

This part of the country is exceptionally beautiful with lakes, snow-capped volcanoes, dense forests and thermal springs. The most exciting way to explore the fjords South of Puerto Montt is by cruise ship or cargo boat.

Day 20 Port of Call Puerto Chacabuco Arrival 8:00a.m. Departure 3:00p.m.

Overview

Situated along the wild-west fjordland coast of Chile, 250 miles south of Puerto Montt, it is here that the northern Patagonian ice sheets fall into the sea in neon blue splendor. One of the last frontiers, there are few such remote, unspoiled and underdeveloped places left on earth. To simply admire the pristine beauty of its untouched natural resources is the main reason for calling on this port. Puerto Chacabuco is a small isolated settlement with no clearly defined town center. The town itself consists of one main road, a fish processing facility and a pier. A frontier like village, about 10 miles north of the port, Puerto Aysen, is the areas main town.

Day 21 Port of Call Puerto Montt Arrival 8:00a.m. Departure 5:00p.m.

Overview

This is the capital city of the Lakes Region X, the last city in its longitudinal valley. Puerto Montt was founded in 1853 by Vicente Perez Rosales as part of the policy of settling the area promoted by the government of the time. A year before, the first German immigrants to the country had arrived in the area, and the city, along with Valdivia and Osorno, retains much of their influence. The bay of Puerto Montt extends over the northern part of the Seno de Reloncavi, with a view of the distant Corcovado and Michinmahuida volcanoes. The central business and service section of the city lies around Manuel Irrazabal Square, with a nice view of the sea, and the Cathedral located north of the square. From the square westwards is the John Paul II Museum, which commemorates the visit of His Holiness the Pope in 1987, as well as housing articles from the culture of the indigenous peoples and the German settlers. Further on rise the harbor works and the Handicrafts Fair, where a variety of characteristic articles produced by local artists can be seen and purchased. At the end of the street is the Caleta Angelmo, famous for its fair and traditional restaurants, especially those where every sort of fish and seafood, in particular the local "curanto," can be sampled. Along the same coast road eastwards of the city is Pelluco Beach, with its beautiful residences, very good restaurants, discotheques, and pubs.

Day 22 Cruising
Day 23 Port of Call San Antonio/Chile Arrival 7:00a.m.
