Wow! Falkland Islands --- a lot of history there going back a few centuries. Cape Horn --- ditto. How was your weather and seas for that passage?

It was pretty nippy rounding Cape Horn but the seas weren't too bad. It was rainy and the wind was blowing quite a bit. We went out on deck for a while to snap a few pix. But we spent some of the time sitting in a cocktail lounge looking out through huge windows while sipping a drink - much more civilized than the Navy!

I wish we could have spent a few days to a week in the Falklands. Every one of the shore excursions interested me, but there was only time to do one. (Even though they get a lot of crappy weather, the day we were there was absolutely beautiful.)
