Bound for Antarctica aboard the Ushuaia

9 Feb 2004 3:38 pm

Day 1: Boarded the Ushuaia in Ushuaia in the evening. Happy with my cabin mate, Neil (from England) who must be the most funny silly person on board. Our cabin is on E deck. E stands for tiny berths at the bottom of the boat, no windows. Still, this seems delux as I’ve been sharing dormitories with 10+ stinky travelers for the last several weeks AND they’ve even give us TOWELS (tres delux). The Ushuaia will take nearly 70 of us on the 10 day cruise to the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Pennisula. I’m pleased that the passengers are of the younger budget travel set like myself and the crew is all Argentinian. The ship’s doc sent us all to bed with a dose of dramamine.
