⬤ IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Arrival and departure in Ushuaia

We strongly advise you to book a night's pre-accommodation in Ushuaia in the case of flight delays. Please contact your booking agent to discuss accommodation and flight options. On the day of disembarkation we highly recommend that you book your flights to depart Ushuaia after 12 noon. Please be aware that we will not be held responsible for the late arrival of the ship from your voyage. 

Fuel Surcharges

Please note that your cruise booking may be subject to fuel surcharges should world oil prices increase significantly prior to the time of your departure. Cruise operators do attempt to factor this price into your tour cost. However, unexpected rises in the cost of marine fuel can result in a fuel surcharge that will depend on the cost of oil per barrel and the individual ship operator. By booking a tour with us, you agree that this may be the case with your booking. You will be advised of any surcharge once we have been notified of the surcharges from the cruise operator if this situation arises.
