A Practical Guide to Cruises in South Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego

The following is a collection of recommendations, suggestions, and information useful to prospective passengers touring South Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego aboard the cruise ships M.V. Stella Australis, and (starting in 2018) M.V. Ventus Australis.  Hopefully, this will answer some frequently asked questions.  (FAQ's)
 

 
Climate

During the season, between October and April, the temperature ranges between 41º F (5º C) and 15º F (15º C). 

Required Clothing for the ExpeditionsClothes

We suggest sportswear and something more formal, if you wish, for the cruise farewell dinner.  For the excursions it is necessary to bring sweaters, parkas, a cap, gloves, sun-block, sunglasses and trekking shoes or boots.  

Electric Power

Cabins are equipped with 200-volt plugs.  In bathrooms, there are outlets for both 220-volts and 110-volts. 

Languages

Official languages onboard are Spanish and English.  However, guides speaking French, German, and Italian will be available.  

Safe Deposit Box

There is a safe deposit box in each cabin for your valuables.  

Tips

At the end of the cruise you will find an envelope in your cabin in which each passenger will decide how much to leave as a tip.  We suggest US $8 to US $10 daily per person, which will be distributed among the personnel that waited on you. 

Currency and Payment Onboard

Personal consumption such as souvenirs, videos, sportswear, and others can be paid with Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Diners credit cards, travelers checks, US dollars, Euros, or Chilean pesos.  

Visa and Passport

Visa / Passport requirements vary according to the passenger's country of origin, which will be verified at the time of making reservations.  Each passenger is responsible for carrying the necessary documents to enter Argentinean and Chilean territory.  Minors not traveling with both parents must carry an authorization of the absent parent signed before a notary public.  

Shop Onboard

There is a shop onboard where you will find exclusive designs in sportswear, souvenirs, gifts, and items for personal use.  

Elevators

The ship does not have elevators or equipment necessary for the handicapped.  

Laundry

As there is no laundry onboard, we hire this service at a laundry in Ushuaia.  Prices will be shown in your cabin and the service will be charged to your current account.  

Travel Insurance

The cruise line's liability for loss or damage is limited to the terms of the fare contract.  

Doctor

If you require medical attention, this service is available onboard, though we hope you will not need it.  

Pets

We are sorry, we do not accept animals onboard.  

Hair Dryer

You may ask for it at reception.
