We are interested in an around the horn cruise, either direction, on a smallish ship, 600 - 800 passengers. We like good food, casual atmosphere (no formal nights), and freestyle dining. No interest in casinos or big production shows. The most important thing is the # of passengers, we can be fexible on the rest. All suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Sounds like you are describing OCEANIA lines. They are a new line that has had great reviews. We were on their Regatta last fall. Smallish ships (684 passengers), open seating dining, "country club casual" dress, incredible food and I could go on. Only negataive rather pricey internet connections.
They will be starting SA trips this fall with their INSIGNIA, the two ships are identical, newly renovated Renaissance ships.
This is the best I could do with their website: http://oceania.spotwerks.com/T_Home....2-cdbd925dccef
What about Oceania.....I'm taking it around the horn this winter. , from Valparaiso to Buenos Airies. Have heard great things about the cruiseline and the ship were taking, the Insignia. No formal nights.....country club casual attire and the food is supposed to be outstanding. Good luck with your search.
