  1. I think you have a great mindset Heathriel. If it makes your landing expedition folks feel better, the Antarctica landing AND Torres del Paine excursions were both canceled last trip due to insurance issues. Without those, Punta Arenas is a somewhat limited port in terms of activities/things to see (and there are penguin tours at each port) so I personally think the Puerto Montt and Chilean Fjords are a really nice add given the circumstances- especially with the weather.

  5. My husband used the gym daily. No card limiting time but it did say if it was busy to be courteous and stop after 30 min to give others a chance.
  6. I bought one as on the Coral last week and drank 2 sips. They have chai latte but I personally didn’t enjoy it.
