Tours were despatched to visit the Rockhopper penguin colonies, the Gentoo penguins at Bluff Cove Lagoon, the Kings at Volunteer Point and in and around Stanley a variety of nature, battlefield and town tours.

A spokesperson for the Falkland Islands Company Ltd, the agents for this particular cruise ship said everything had gone to schedule and as planned well in advance of the visit and the ship was expected to leave the Falklands again soon after 5pm. Friday.

A spokesperson for the Falkland Islands Tourist Board said he was happy to confirm that the “Seabourn Sojourn” had arrived as scheduled and her passengers had enjoyed a fine sunny day, adding: “We look forward to welcoming future planned visits.”
