  1. Thanks for all your information. We ended up booking on Latam MIA-BUE business class round trip. Too good a price to pass up.
  2. We are booked, but have not been to Antarctica yet. We used many factors in choosing which month to make the trip. Weather, wildlife, other trips already booked, and cost. Our determination was actually made by cost and already booked trips. We were planning for 2021 but got such a fantastic deal we squeezed it int 2020. The article below may be useful. https://www.adventure-life.com/antarctica/articles/best-time-of-year-to-travel-to-antarctica
  3. Are you sailing February 2020? Are you sure you start 2/28? We are on the cruise before you and disembark on 2/29/2020.
  4. That is their home. Small world. I am talking to someone (you) about travel on the other side of the world and you know my friends home. I wish they could travel with us.
  5. I know it is a long shot. Our friends are Danielle and Ron Furden.
  6. Dbld777- are you on the October 10 Delta flight? Also - who is from Paso Robles? My longest (60 years) friend lives in Paso Robles. She lives on Vine Street.
  7. In February 2019 we stayed pre and post cruise at the Intercontinental Tahiti. Two of the four nights were in an overwater bungalow. The bungalow was lovely and they had just been refurbished. We included breakfast except for the last night (we would have missed breakfast as our Delta flight left at 8:30AM) which was very good. Be prepared for slow food service in the restaurant - I think this is a cultural thing. We had room service for dinner one night and ate on our overwater bungalow deck - really enjoyed it. The snorkeling from our deck was really good. They also have a lagoonarium with lots of fish. We enjoyed snorkeling there also. Just a side note: We had priced pearls at the IC before our cruise. Then on the cruise we looked at pearls in all the ports. I ended up waiting until we were back at the IC because they actually had the best pricing. Before and after being able to be in your room the IC has great shower/changing rooms so you can continue to use the facilities and then get ready for your flight. On our last night I booked the cheapest regular room and moved from the overwater bungalow. The IC upgraded us to a panoramic view which was also very nice. What Pacific Princess October date are you sailing? We are on the 15th.
  8. Has anyone recently stayed in the Las Condes area? Any demonstrations going on there?
  9. We did the Manchu Picchu addition when we did the Galapagos on the Xpedition in 2016. At that time we did what was called the Inner Loop. Celebrity did an excellent job. At the time my husband was 69. We snorkeled and it was very manageable. (There were many older than us on the trip who also snorkeled.) we loved the different islands and the wildlife. The Zodiac cruises for excursions were also good. The Manchu Picchu extension was great. First class all the way. I actually did it in an aircast - torn tendons in left foot. We did this in July. It was great weather and lots of baby birds. If you are interested the link is a Youtube video of the photos from our trip. https://youtu.be/2ctjPVgERjU
  10. Ohhbrother - Thanks for the American Airlines heads up. This is a great option and one we will probably end up with. I love Delta (Aerolineas Argentinas codeshare with Delta), but AA has better equipment for this itinerary.
  11. RamblinRisa - Thanks for the information. I did not realize that the flights are codeshare with Delta. I just checked and I can book through Delta - Yea. Then I can go to the Aerolineas website to pick our seats. We are booked on Aerolineas in February 2020 to go to Iguazu Falls. But it is from the local Buenos Aires airport on a local route. I hope to have our December flights booked before that trip.
  12. Our Antarctica Expedition on the Fridtjof Nansen is now less than a year away and in about 4-6 weeks we will be looking at purchasing our airfare round trip to Buenos Aires. I am looking for feedback on Aerolinas Argentinas Miami to Buenos Aires. The good, the bad, and the ugly. We will be flying business class and our traveling companions economy, so any information on either is appreciated. Our other option is non-stop from Atlanta on Delta, which is considerably more expensive. Thanks for your knowledge and experience.
  13. I looked at two week trip pricing Saturday to Saturday November 7-21, 2020. (We are actually traveling in December 2020 but looking in advance at pricing closest to our travel dates.) ATL - EZE r/t on Delta is about $9,000 pp MIA - EZE r/t on Aerolina Argentinas is about $2,300 - $3,000 plus our r/t ATL - MIA which we can do for about 20,000 miles in economy or $550 in first class. The significant difference in cost is why I am asking about other's satisfaction with the airline.

  15. are you flying to the Argentina or Brazil side of the falls? Are you sure your flight to Iguazu departs from EZE? We are flying AEP to IGU (Argentina side). AEP is actually close to the cruise port.
