This was my very first visit to South America, and this cruise started from Valparaiso, Chile, to Buenos Aires, Argentina.   Although my flight was from San Francisco to Santiago, the cruise line bussed us to Valparaiso through Vina del Mar for a quick bus tour. 

This was the first page of my vacation photo album:

We spent 12 nights on the Zenith, and our port stops were Puerto Montt, the Chilean glaciers, Punta Arenas, around Cape Horn, Ushuaia (the sourthernmost city of the world), Puerto Madryn, Punta Ballena (for Punta Ballena for whale watching), and Buenos Aires.  This cruise had a good number of Germans on it, and I'm sure some were on this cruise to meet up with family and/or friends in Chile where many Germans settled.   I sat with one couple from Germany during the cruise, and asked if they had family or friends in Chile, and he told me he was a sea captain most of his life, but never went around Cape Horn, and that's the reason they were on this cruise.

The vacation photo album I prepared for this trip has not survived very well, and most of the pictures have faded.  Fortunately, I was able to find my box of photos from that trip, and will make some selections I think are representative of this journey.  I will add commentary wherever I can.  But before I do, I need to pick pictures, and scan them before I can post them here.   Please be patient; I'll try to finish this task by tomorrow evening.

My dinner companions on the Zenith: 

The lady on the bottom left picture, Judy, was from Canada, and we were able to share wine during our meals.
