Luxury Antarctica Cruise Blog – Chapter 5 Antarctica 

The next two days were spent at sea on the way to Antarctica. There was a lot of downtime but plenty to do if you wanted to stay busy. I chose the downtime option. At night there was always entertainment. One night we had a wonderful performance of Cabernet music by our guest entertainer, Michael. There’s always dancing when he performs and this night was no exception. (more…)

Chapter 2  The Falklands

The flight got us to Ushuaia about 11 AM so we got to tour all four blocks of the town until 12:30. Then we boarded the Scenic Eclipse. It is a beautiful new ship equipped with all sorts of expedition gear including 2 helicopters and a submarine. We will go on those later. (more…)

I departed the States for our South Pole cruise on December 26 and arrived in Buenos Aires on the morning of the 27, Friday. The trip was smooth and uneventful. Just the way I like it. We did, however, have one little glitch. We had the biggest car in Buenos Aires and couldn’t fit ourselves and our luggage into the car. Kathy, the girl I am traveling with threatened to tie me to the roof. We really needed a bus for our meager wardrobes.
