  1. No, it was EMERALD LAKE CRUISE, PETROHUÉ FALLS & PUERTO VARAS, 7.5 hours. (Included tours are nearly always just either a walk or bus ride around the town).
  2. Chile continues to dazzle, as today we docked in Puerto Montt and went into the lake district at the foot of the Andes.
  3. We’ve been to all three, Norway just last June. IMO, the Chilean fjords win hands down. Just beyond beautiful—mysterious and magic, with glacial snow melting into waterfalls now, in high summer. The Captain has been vary generous in deviating from his straight path to take us up close and calling out the glaciers as we pass. My photos don’t do the last few days justice:
  4. And, btw, Brazil is apparently a bear, but Viking met in the dining room with their people as soon as we docked and took care of everything, so we just walked off for our 9 am tour.
  5. Viking collected our passports (and Brazilian visa) in Miami and still has them. I just overheard a man asking for his passport back, and they said they needed to keep it to check us in tomorrow in Uraguay. So far no lines, nothing but walk off the ship with our stateroom card. Very easy!
  6. The mantra is: you’re not going to get any younger and it’s not going to get any cheaper. Go for it!
  7. Grenada is indeed a fabulous, exotic island. We did a trip to the Grand Etang rain forest whose lake is a volcano crater. Also visited a cocoa plantation, sugar mill, and rum distillery. The national flower is the bougainvillea, which is everywhere!
  8. Just got back from Old San Juan walking tour. The town used to be called Puerto Rico and the Island San Juan. Go figure. Walled town with Fortress, and a picture of the Sun from up above. Today is Three King’s Day or Christmas Sunday!
  9. We are in Miami. Leaving tonight and next stop is San Juan on Sunday.
  10. Just looked out the window from our hotel. It’s a bit misty this morning...but there is the Sun over in port! Three hours until embarkation!
  11. Thanks, Karen. We just saw on the nightly news here in Miami about the paralyzing snow in the SW. Meanwhile, we have traded parkas and hot toddies for shorts and margaritas. Happy New Year to you and Frank! christine

  13. Jim, you will laugh. We had to fly backwards to Phoenix and then on to Miami to get here. Thanks for the good wishes!
  14. New Year Greetings from Miami. We may the first ones here. Our flight out yesterday at 12:30 pm was one of the last ones to get out. American preemptively canceled all flights from 3pm Monday to 6 am Wednesday. SO glad we made it. And, now the adventure begins!
