Trip Report Cruceros Australis from Ushuaia to Punta Arenas-Highly Recommended

Jump to last reply

We enjoyed 4 night cruise from Ushuaia to Punta Arenas as part of a longer trip to Patagonia, and can not recommend more highly, this is truly a hidden gem.

The Via Australis holds 100, and there were about 85 passengers on our mid December cruise. There were 16 different nationalities represented and this was probably the most well travelled group I have experienced. There were a very few children, average age was probably 55-60 but all healthy and capable of light excursions. Cruise is all inclusive including food and alcoholic beverages, all of which were of high quality. Each day there were two excursions on Zodiac boats, many times to glaciers but also to Cape Horn and other islands. FOr the entire four night cruise, we never saw another boat, and the educational talks and videos were good as well. Options were offered at times for those who wanted to do a more adventurous excursion.

Great cruise for those who don't have time or money for Antarctica but want some of the experience.
