Remembering this is summer in the southern hemisphere, we still saw lots of snow on top of the mountains from the port. It's not a big port, and everything was pretty low key.
The ship was not a large one, with only about 120 passengers plus crew. There were 3 decks and 62 cabins. The cabins are NOT locked at any time. This was kind of surprising at first, but being a small ship and group, we soon got used to it and never had any problems. The ship is ice-reinforced and maneuverable. We would be seeing her navigating in pack ice and rough waters soon enough! This is also a comfortable ship, it's not one of those Russian ice breakers which I am not too keen on. I actually get seasick and will soon have quite an experience in the Drake Passage tomorrow!
