Next cruise is Cape Horn/Strait of Magellan from Santiago,Chile to Buenos Aires.
HOLA! Just returned from HAL's Rotterdam doing Valparaiso to Rio - spectacular is the only way to describe it. BE SURE TO GET PORT SIDE accomodations traveling in that direction!!! You'll have all of the glaciers at your fingertips. We had a Deluxe Veranda (Suite 7038) portside and would sit (bundled up) having hot drinks and enjoying the view for hours... Our transit around the Horn was bright, sunny and SMOOOOOOOTH (but cold)! We were lucky - the captain even cicumnavigated the island. Had to bypass the Falklands - the seas were running 30+ feet and the winds were blowing 75kts across our bow!

Have a great cruise!
