    Falklands and cruise ships

    In 2012 princess cruises were barred from the Falklands due to illness on board

    Falkland Islands: Cruise ship with 3,500 passengers - many Argentinian - turned away | Mail Online

    There does not seem to be many cruises going there since other than bespoke expidition type cruises, I was wondering if it was this and Argentina ranting and raving has put cruise liners off. The history and wildlife would make it an interesting port.

    anyone been there on a cruise or invoved in the war in the 80's give there experience of the place famous for its oatmeal stout.

    If you go there is no guarantee you can go ashore as it is a tender port . We went last year but could not go ashore for this reason. Managed a few photos from the ship of the island and that was it! Many disappointed passengers who had planned to lay wreaths etc. If we had waited a couple of hours longer till around 11-0 am we would have got there as the weather settled but the Captain of the ship had decided to cruise away so we all missed it.

    I was lucky I did the Falklands and Buenos Aires on the Aurora world cruise both unmissible , unfortunately politics has raised it's ugly head and cruise ships are easy targets.
