Does anyone have experience cruising on this vessel? According to what I read on the company's site, it was built in 2010 specifically built for cruising in the Patagonia region. Any feedback would be much appreciated.

I have not been on any of there cruises or ships. But what I saw when I was touring around down there, the ships are very well maintained. I sailed part of the same area what their doing on the cruises and know some places. It is quiete an amazing trip and very good quality over all. You can go to places which you'll never see on a normal big cruiseship. Also by road you can't get to the most of there go-ashore-places. My travelagent was on one of their cruises and only had good things to tell. I would go for sure, but already have seen the area. Here are some shots of their ships.
