I went on this cruise in March this year. It was quite warm around Buenos Aires and Montivideo but got a lot colder when we went south. You will need warm clothes for the Falklands, Tierra Del Fuego and the Southern Chilean ports. Also take wet weather gear. Having said that, the scenery on this cruise is truly amazing so take your camera/camcorder. Enjoy it, I did.

Hi i live in the falkland islands and by march we are getting to the end of our summer so the weather is very variable, we have been known to have all four seasons in one day so be prepared fror anything!! if it is a sunny day be ready with the sun cream as we have virtually no ozone layer here and you can get sunburnt very easily, hope you have a good cruise and perhaps i will see you at the cafe where i work in stanley MICHELE'S. all the best sara.

What's the weather like at the beginning of Dec? I'm on a cruise leaving from Buenos Aires on 4th Dec and heading round Cape Horn - should be in Port Stanley 6/7th. Will I need clothes for every weather as one of the other cruisers mentioned or is this more spring going into summer time? I'm a panic packer at the best of times so I fear that this will be a nightmare!

Hi, december is getting into the real summer here BUT on saying that yes our weather is very unpredictable and the one thing that we do suffer with in the summer months is the wind!!! sometimes it can be so strong that ships actually never get in as is it too rough for you to come into stanley by tender if you are on a large ship, on the other hand it may be very calm and very warm so i would suggest a light layer of clothing and a pack-a-mac just in case and dont forget sun tan cream as even in the wind you could get really bad sunburn here, its a beautiful island and i am sure you will enjoy your visit, look forward to seeing you.

If register on the Princess Cruise website your booking comes up, with a handy countdown of days to your particular cruise. Below this there's a section about the weather and what you should expect at all the various ports of call. We are also going next March (16th) from Rio to Valpariso and have found this link very useful.

Amazed by Symphony Part 1

By Anne Eaves

Anne Eaves's blog

My husband and i have recently returned from a cruise on Symphony of the Seas to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and without a doubt it was one of the best cruises we have done. We arrived in Barcelona on 27th April and had one night at the Onix Liceo Hotel which is centrally located about half way down Las Ramblas on a side street, and is a great location for a pre cruise stay if you are looking for something central.We took a taxi to the port the following morning where the check i...

A mini cruise to remember..

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

I’ve just come back form a cheeky three night mini cruise with the girls so I thought I would give you a sneaky peak at some of our best bits.We were a large party of twelve with a mixture of friends, some who had met through www.CRUISE.co.uk. Some of us are still here but others had moved on to pastures new, so it’s always nice to catch up with everybody to see what people have been up to and what’s new in their lives. Not everybody knew each other which was also nice as we all...
