MS Expedition country of association?

Famous for its enormous icebergs, towering glaciers and shimmering summer light, Antarctica offers some of the planet's most awe inspiring landscapes. The North Atlantic and Arctic evoke images of sparse snow covered lands, but when summer comes it bursts with colour and life.

MS Expedition country of association?

Postby jen_the_rockhopper » Tue Feb 28, 2012 9:22 pm

Allo

I am booked to go onthe Spirit of Shackleton in January but was just reading today about cruise ships getting turned away from Ushuaia due to their association with Britain. Ive looked on the website but cannot find what flag the ship flies under. Does anybody here know? I would hate to have my trip cancelled or price hiked by needing to find a different port...

that being said one can hope the conflict will be done and over come January

I saw many a rockhopper penguin in the Falklands but none of them responded to Jen :)

We saw the colourful macaroni penguin on S. Georgia. The macaroni penguin looks like a more flamboyant version of the rockhopper penguin but we didn't see either of them in the antarctic region.

We saw one macaroni in a colony of chinstraps on our voyage. Frank said that particular macaroni had been going to that colony for the past 6 years. It is indeed very flamboyant -- all the more so when surrounded by a sea of chinstraps.


EDIT: Found a picture of the macaroni from our voyage. We saw him on Half Moon Island.

The ship is Liberian registered in Monrovia. You should be fine.
