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.

Five Of My Favourites !

By Camilla Edwards

Well its very nearly Christmas and all I wish for now is some snow! Walking the dog this morning everywhere was frosty and white, made me really feel in the festive spirit. One of the best things personally at this time of the year is the food and celebrations associated with Christmas and New Year, so this week I have decided to blog about 5 of my favourite places to eat. Some on cruise ships, some not.Fed Olsen Balmoral. I always enjoy the food on Fred`s ships and Balmoral last year was no...

My final update on my recent trip on Independance of the seas is all about my dining experience.I can honestly say I was not disappointed with one meal I had.You can literally eat 24 hours a day. The group was on second sitting which was 8.30 in the main dining room The Romeo and Juliet. The choice in there was great something for everyone and the staff were very attentive and gave us their recommendations at every meal.Also in here you can have A la Carte Breakfast from 7.30am to 9.30am an...

Calling all Small Ship Lovers.

By Nicola Milligan

Nicola Milligan's blog

Cast your mind back to 2015. and the sad news when P & O told us that the much loved 710 passenger adult only ship ADONIA was leaving their fleet.Lots of the small ship lovers were devastated as so many huge new ships were coming onto the market leaving a vast hole for the smaller more intimate ships.We were told she was joining Fathom Cruises a line that enables guests to do something good to help out poorer countries. So Volunteers through tourism can help locals learn English and build...
