Zaandam - 14 Day South America crusie review
« on: January 27, 2015, 07:41:21 PM »
Hi All:

This took way longer than planned. I have been working on this for the last 10 days trying to get it finished but one thing lead to another and now we have it.

This review has about many many photos. It is also very long.

Highlight for me was Geocaching on a trail in the Falklands and rounding the corner on the trail to find a Penguin on the trail I was not expecting this.

I have to say I am rather disappointed with HAL in a way because they offered a paid upgrade to a suite but because it was the "full" fare I don't get the extra days as a Mariner. I say this because HAL offered it to me that became the full fare. When they do this, do they not give you all the perks you are suppose to get? You get all he perks except the extra days.

Read away.

You are a brave man to take a trip like that and I enjoyed reading about it. I've sailed around the Cape of Good Hope, but I don't think I will try your route. The pictures are beautiful, but the seas seem to be rough often at "the end of the world".
