Hi: Just put my deposit doen on the Mariner around the Cape next Jan.'09.
Our cabin is on Deck 6 on the Starboard side. Is there any kind of overhang from above to obstruct view of the horizon or that would give
us some shade in the afternoon?? Has anyone done this itinerary?? It
starts in Rio with an overnite in Buenos Aires and again in Valpariso. We
want to come in a day or two early to get rid of the jet lag and see some
of Rio before cruising. Any suggestiions on tours/operators, reasonable
hotels - my husband has walking issues so we can't do really strenuous
stuff. Also, is it safe to hire your own or should I book through the ship
(in the past, have found that the tours offered through the ship are alot
more money but aren't really any different that ones you can hire on
your own. We also do not speak any Spanish or whatever languages are
common to that area - will we have a problem communicating - don't want
to get ripped off.
