From Ron Pradinuk
I invite you to join me and my wife Rae on an exceptional South American Patagonia cruise in January of 2013. We will be hosting this cruise on the Award Winning ship the Seabourn Sojourn.
This itinerary for most people will represent a once in a lifetime opportunity. We will depart from Valparaiso (Santiago) Chile on January 19, 2013 and over the next 15 days visit some of the most desirable ports of call in South America, and view some of the most spectacular sights as we sail around Cape Horn, through the Chilean Fiords, past majestic glaciers, with stops at ports of call where the South American experience could fill books of photo memories.
Cruising on a Seabourn ship is unlike any other form of travel. The small ship experience with only 450 passengers is luxurious, yet relaxed -- elegant, yet casual -- sumptuous, yet understated.
We will sail to the heart of landmark cities, as well as to hidden gems where larger vessels cannot follow.
As numerous travel publications have said “Seabourn is in a class by itself,” with the highest ratio of space per guest in the cruise industry.
This is the ultimate all-inclusive cruise where not only are the meals included but also all beverages including wine, spirits and soft drink. As an added value, all
gratuities are included as well.
Additionally our hosted cruise includes an on board cocktail party so everyone can meet, and a tremendous complimentary excursion option in Punta Arenas.
I have no doubt you will come back from this voyage considering it one of the best vacations you will have ever spent.

Picturesque Valparaiso was one of the first Chilean cities founded by the Spanish. The city is an historic port and university town, famous for its labyrinth hills, which are covered in quaint, colorful old houses and accessible only by a steep climb or by the city’s unique system of funicular railways. Through the efforts of the Chilean government emphasizing the city’s culture, heritage preservation, and economic development via tourism, Valparaiso was bestowed designation as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2003
Founded in 1536, Buenos Aires was administered by a Spanish viceroy for nearly three centuries before winning its independence in 1816. A sleepy port town for most of that time, it wasn’t until the turn of the 20th century that the city finally emerged as an important shipping center. Today, Argentina’s democratically elected government has made it South America’s safest (and most expensive) country. This cosmopolitan city is characterized by broad boulevards with huge shade trees, beautiful residential districts, plazas containing monuments and fountains, interspersed with 20th-century high-rise buildings. It is a truly great walking city.
