We were blessed with beautiful weather on the first day and the wildlife and scenery were spectacular. Although having all these formidable icebergs around poses some interesting challenges to navigation, you can’t help but be amazed and in awe of what Mother Nature can come up with! These pictures were taken on my humble cell phone, so you can imagine what the professional photographers are coming up with! Our guests are more than excited to experience this incredible destination.

Crystal Symphony has spent three days in the frozen region during the “Amazing Antarctic” voyage from Buenos Aires to Valparaíso.
