As the subject line states, I would appreciate learning what recommendations experienced cruises have who have sailed such an itinerary have.

I know little about South American ports South of the Amazon area and very little about Antarctica.

Thank you for your information.

Is this a cruise-by itinerary for Antarctica? I don't know which port exactly you will be calling at in South America, but as far as Antarctica goes, I was very happy with the Lonely Planet guide for Antarctica : http://shop.lonelyplanet.com/antarct...ravel-guide-5/

Yes, it is a cruise-by that sends a few days in the area. Sails from Valparaiso to Buenos Aires and includes the Falkland Islands.
