Jaap’s Postcards from South America

Thanks to Jaap Wisse, Prinsendam’s chief engineer, for sharing these photos from Argentina, Antarctica and Chile. Enjoy!

The Prinsendam in Antarctica. Our crew from Indonesia and the Filipines loved it. Most of them never had seen snow.

Just between a shower we finally saw something of the real Antarctica.

The coast of Punta Arenas, Chile, is loaded with all kind of ship wrecks.

The fishing season is over so all boats are stored at the beach.

Clouds over Ushuaia, Argentina. Too much wind to dock or to anchor.

    I was on the Prisendam on one of her 66 day trips to Antarctica and absolutely loved both the ship and the experience. Antarctica is one of the most beautiful yet desolate places I have ever visited.

    My wife and I totally enjoyed our cruise in 2011 on the Prinsendam that included North Africa and numerous wonderful ports in the Med. We have completed three Grand Cruises and are looking
    forward to being on board the Prinsendam again on January 5th. of 2013 enjoying the fantastic
    care that the crew gives to the passengers on this great ship and to complete the fourth of the four
    Grand Voyages that Holland America offers. We have heard nothing but praise from cruise friends
    who have taken the South American, Antarctica, and Amazon cruise adventure.

    I am currently on Eurodam sailing to Helsinki tomorrow. Whilst this voyage is good, its nothing compared to the Prinsendam you were on. Still waiting to do an Antartica cruise…

    Wonder if you will get to read this after retirement?
