    Actually the S Cone is a growth area potentially - being spolit somewhat by greedy overcharging somewhere- Chile ahs seen the light and is re-organising charges and opening up Puerto Williams, Falklands are holding fees and taxes and improving facilities - wonder who is in the middle and in a few years time may be loosing out if they dont improve their act?

    well knowing how the Argentine mind works they probably think that they are the best in the cruise business Islanderi.

    That part of the world is actually untapped as far as Cruising goes. If you asked the average British person about where they were cruising South America is the last place they would think of going compared with cruising the Med and the Caribbean. And its not just Britain most of Europe would not think of cruising down there. It might be the cost that puts them of though, get the cost down and it will be a gold mine for the cruise companys.
