Cruising through the Chilean Fjords, at least in the area where we were is not the same as (pick one – Norway, New Zealand, Alaska, Canada ..). I am sure that it you actually entered the Fjords the similarities would be greater. But we cruised along between islands making it spectacular in a completely different way. You could see mountains off in the distance, but they were not looming over your head. In some areas you could see what were probably ice fields, but again – you were not sailing along in a sea filled with ice chunks that seem small till you realize that something appearing the same size as a VW bug from Deck 12 is probably bigger than a shoe box.
Peering up channels as we passed by it was hard to guess what was mainland and what was making up part of the arpelligo (spelling). Many of the land masses could have as easily been islands as not. We saw more than our share of seals/sea lions poking up their heads as we disturbed their fishing grounds with our passage.
