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.

Part 2 of the Harmony of the Seas

By Lorraine McSorley

Following on from Part 1 of by thoughts on Harmony of the SeasWe had purchased the wine and beer package but quickly realised that upgrading to the Ultimate package was better value for money from Cocktails to soft drinks, wine and beer they had it all, lots of cast ales in the English pub and really good quality wines from around the world, my favourite was from New Zealand, a Sauvignon Blanc Villa Maria that they served in the main Dining room, the food was outstanding there are so many eat...

Themed cruises all the way.

I had to smile this week when I read about Bonnie Tyler making a guest appearance on board ‘Oasis of the seas’ to help get passengers in the spirit to experience the Solar eclipse. Very clever Royal Caribbean, it’s almost as good as an episode of ‘Homes under the hammer’.Bonnie will be belting out her 80’s hit ‘Total eclipse of the heart’ alongside American rock dance band DNCE in the Aqua Theater about an hour before the eclipse next week. You ...

Southampton Port Parking I...

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

I always think arriving at the airport or port is really the start of the holiday but last time I cruised from Southampton it was a bit of a nightmare and very stressful. Traffic jams between Oxford and Newbury made us, and many other passengers, late to start with and on arriving at the cruise terminal the queues were horrendous to say the least. Sitting in a car for an hour and a half looking at Ventura is not the best start to anyone`s cruise. Fortunately we had booked Valet Parking so on...
