Cruising Glacier Alley

Ushuaia, Argentina

Throughout the night we made our way through the fjords of South America towards our first stop in Argentina. The route taken to Ushuia was via the Magdalena, Cockburn, Ballenero, O'Brien and finally the Beagle Channel.

At 07:00 AM Crown Princess sailed along glacier alley, passing abeam España Glacier first followed by the Romanche, Alemania, Francia, and Italia Glacier at 08:19 AM. When reaching the end of the scenic cruise, the ship slowed and an Argentinian pilot boarded the vessel. By 12:00 noon the ship was safely alongside in the harbor of Ushuaia.

The onboard port expert / naturalist narrated the entire journey through glacier alley.   At the end of the cruise, we purchased the Reflections DVD set so we could relive the experience back home.
