Global Morning News – Take a Cruise to the Bottom of the World

Posted on: January 2, 2024

Well there is nothing like planning ahead as opposed to last minute travel deals.

The Reason?

Many of those bucket list type destinations are heavily booked already so booking ahead is what we are looking at.

Now here is a trip that I did a couple of years ago and it was FANTASTIC.

18 days in length this cruise takes you all around the tip of South America – and you get to stop at some incredible places along the way.

Starting in Valparaiso – a beautiful little town then working your way all along the coast – along the way the beautiful Chilean fjords.

Until you arrive in Ushuaia – this is the spot where all the expedition ships leave for Antarctica. But apart from that it is a beautiful little town with great walking streets and lovely restaurants. A real treat to visit.

Then you get to visit the Falkland Islands. It is pretty much in the middle of nowhere but very interesting to visit the local Pub which is more British than probably what you would get in England! And you have to go and see the statue of Margaret Thatcher.

Finishing off in Buenos Aires – one of my favourite cities.

I have almost talked myself into doing this trip again! Fabulous memories.

Now doing this on Viking Cruises is such good value because there is so much included –

  • One complimentary shore excursion in every port of call
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Beer, wine & soft drinks with onboard lunch & dinner
