For our Patagonia adventure cruise through the Chilean Fjords, IE guests board the Stella Australis (2013) or the Via Australis (2014). These ships offer a relaxed stay, while providing breathtaking sights from the decks. They feature lounges for meetings equipped with modern audiovisual equipment, a dining room, an exercise room, and a spacious open deck area allowing the observation of the marvelous southern scenery at all times.
The Patagonia cruise is “all-inclusive”: breakfast, lunch, dinner and Open Bar for wine, beer, liquor and other beverages. The menu combines international cuisine and local recipes, which allows the discovery of the delicious and varied regional gastronomy, accompanied by Chilean and Argentine wines.
Each cabin features a host of amenities, including:
We disembark from a minimum of once per day. We land in wilderness areas by Zodiac. This is a “dry” landing—no wading through surf. We enter the Zodiacs via a metal staircase at the stern of the ship and disembark to land via a portable gangplank. Balance, good humor and minimal dexterity are required. Several seamen always assist this process.
