rutas-slide-1440x765We’re moving to four-night itineraries only! Effective September 26, 2018 both the Stella Australis and the Ventus Australis (which launches in late 2017) will offer four-night, one-way itineraries between Punta Arenas (Chile) and Ushuaia (Argentina).

These routes have been christened “Fjords of Tierra del Fuego” (Punta Arenas–Ushuaia) and “Patagonian Explorer” (Ushuaia–Punta Arenas. However, these two itineraries can be combined on a round-trip journey called “Darwin’s Route” (eight nights starting and ending in Punta Arenas or Ushuaia). Note: until this date we will run on traditional three- and four-night cruises on the Stella.

We are also pleased to announced that there will be no rate increases for the 2018 -2019 season! You can browse our rates at

Be sure to mark this on your calendar: The 2018-2019 season will start on Wednesday, September 26 with a cruise departing from Punta Arenas and end on April 2, 2019 when the last cruise of the season docks in PA.
