Default Re: Cape Horn on Celebrity

There are interesting excursions at every port--I have lost track of them,
but do remember one which includes the Penquin colony. This is a great
one and will be listed on your excursion book. As for "open water"--you
will have a lot of it around the Horn and on the Atlantic side before you
reach the Falkland Isl. We were delayed for a day because of a storm
off the Falklands and never did get ashore. The cruise through the Chilean
fjords is similar to the inside passage in Alaska. We have used the
scopolomine patch once, but never again--the side effects were too great.
What works for one person may not for another. We have switched to
Bonine, since it contains Meclazine(the preferred drug for vertigo and
motion sickness). In most cases we have found the excursions booked
through the ship work well on this itinerary. Most of the ports are fairly
small, and unless the situation has changed, there were limited local
taxis available. ENJOY, ENJOY
