Having been to Europe on Viking River & Ocean we thought we would try South America this time.
Disappointing as Argentina and Chile not very open to tourists. Getting off in Buenos Aires was a disaster-3 hours through customs and 6 hours to get luggage delivered to room.
The ship and crew as always were up to Viking standards! The excursions tried hard to show us items of interest but some places were far away from the landing port and some roads were just gravel and dusty.
Both of us got sick with COVID-19 symptoms. So we self-quarantined in our room for 5 days. Others were sick as well. Crew not always present to tell people to wash hands.
Getting off in Valparaiso we had to spend all day on an excursion and hotel (provided) as the plane doesn't leave till 9 PM.
Overall-if it weren't for the penguins at Punto Tomba and Cape Horn-it was not as exciting as expected.
Do not recommend Buenos Aires.
Well appointed, a little smaller than some other explorer suites-probably would pick another one.
At back of ship-great unobstructed views.
