One of the many reasons Holland America is one of my two favorite cruise lines is there aren't many kids.

We sailed Holland America's Rotterdam on a 16-day South America cruise Christmas 2005 and...

Buenos Aires

Does anyone know why QM 2 was not scheduled to visit Buenos Aires on her World Cruise? It surprised me that BA wasn't one of the ports visited. Is she too big to cruise down Rio de la Plata?
