I am Kathy from Australia aged 65 and would love to cruise on the Veendam around the south of south america through the chilean fjords and it also goes to the falkland islands. It goes from november 2010 to Feb 2011 so I can be flexible. YOu can be as independent as you like. I speak quite good spanish as I have spent quite an amount of time in South America. i do not smoke but like a social drink. I will be happy to contact you by skype or phone if you want. Do hope to hear from you soon.
