Buenos Aires-Santiago Xmas + New Years Oceania Insignia
Xmas + New Years
Our "Roll Call" bio said we were looking to South America for our next
cruise and low and behold, December 19th - January 4th Buenos Aires
Argentina to Santiago Chile. Hoping that there will be other FOD's aboard
to join in a chorus of "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" at the sail away...
David and I did that cruise in 2002 over Xmas & New Years. We had a great time. The highlights were the penguin rookeries and "Senor Tango"
(show and dinner) in B.A. It was a very relaxing cruise because of the days at sea. The Glaciers and the southern most parts of the cruise were fascinating as well. Chile is quite beautiful almost everywhere you go. Have a great cruise. (Rent the movie "Motorcycle Diaries" before you go for a taste of the scenery. It's a great flick too!
When in Chile buy some of the excellent red wines at very reasonable rates. The corkage fees/savings on board are well worth the inconvenience. The wine stewards love tasting the different wines with you at dinner time.
We'd go back again in a heartbeat but we're on a different cruise through the Panama Canal this Xmas.
