We'll be sailing on Celebrity Mercury 1/6/02, from Rio around Cape Horn to Valparaiso. If you are headed around the Cape, remember that temperatures threre will be 50-60, not the tropical temps many people expect. Also, expect some rough seas. A nice bonus is the long hours of daylight. Sunset at that time of year probalby almost 10 PM.
thinking of the ssimilar cruise-thinks it leave BA feb.14-would appreciate your sharing any tips you get-know you can save a bundle on shore excursions if you can make your own arrangements but need to get some reliable tour operators.
