It was partly through a gallery tour this morning
on what was supposed to be our second of three sea days on the way to Elephant Island that I decided it just might be worth listening to the occasional announcement. Instead, we are informed (in English, Spanish and German – I am assuming the director of the Chinese Tour group posts the information for his own people since we never hear it) that today is now the second of two sea days with tomorrow in Port Stanley. Seems there is a bit of a storm in Antarctica with some winds that it would be better not to experience.
Specifically our schedule is now as follows:
- Wed Feb 19 – Port Stanley, Falkland Islands. Tender port with a long distance
Thurs Feb 20 at Sea
Fri Feb 21 – Scollart Channel, Antarctica (cruising 1400-1600) – Paradise Bay, Antarctica (cruising 1700-1900) Sat Feb 22 – at Sea
Sun Feb 23, Ushuaia, Argentina (Sunday – exactly what is going to be open on Sunday?)
Mon Feb 24 Cape Horn (Cruising (0800-1000)
Tues Feb 25 at sea
Wed Feb 26 Puerto Madryn, Argentina
Thurs Feb 27 at sea
Friday Feb 28 Punta Del Este, Uraguay
Sat, March 1, Montevideo, Uraguay
Sun – March 2 – Back to Buenos Aires. Now the fact that we are not missing any ports, actually picking up one is all to my benefit don’t you think?
