    A bit of investment would turn Isla Nararino into the ultimate gateway to Antarctica. I think it is only a matter of time.

    Nice to see another safe, welcoming destination for the cruise ships - I am sure others will join their numbers and start avoiding less friendly ports.

    This is as result of the new cruise policy of the Chilean Gvt. that change the tax and fares down....
    Hope the calls at Chilean ports, specially Southern ones, will increase next seassons...

    The Chileans clearly understand business in a way that Argentina doesn't.
