Soutn American cruise in December

We're cruising on Norwegian Star in December. Please can anyone advise what to pack, what sights we shouldn't miss and what shopping bargains in each port or any advice you can give us. This is our first time in South America and our first cruise

Go to cruisecritic.com and set aside time and patience to browse through hundreds anmd hundreds of already posted useful info. Register on the ship's "Roll Call Forum" to exchange info with many folks that will be traveling with you. Oftentimes, passengers going on that route blog from the ship so you get to know current sea conditions, weather, special notes, etc.....

December is summertime in South America, so think California summer; a windbreaker is a must, though... Visit weatherunderground.com or eveb cnn.com for weather patterns/trends.

Cruisecritic belongs to Expedia/Travelocity/TripAdvisor (same company owns all of these online providers), but they do a good job at remaining somewhat detached of the postings; the site is bombarded with advertising pop-ups that can be easily ignored.

You didn't post your itinerary. As Viajero2 said it is summer in SA, but the cruise we're taking in January goes around the horn, so we will have both warm and cold weather. We'll be packing heavy coats and sturdy warm shoes, along with cottons/linens and sandals.
