Seabourn Spirit Cruises the Southernmost Tip in South America
March 9, 2010
This winter season, Seabourn Spirit sailed to South America for the first time, circling around this diverse region that is home to some of the world’s most beautiful natural wonders and magnificent landscapes. One of the most memorable “calls” took place in February, when Spirit sailed to Cape Horn, the southernmost part of South America. To reach Cape Horn, Spirit sailed through the Drake Passage, a body of water between South America and Antarctica that connects the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Seas are typically stormy in this stretch of water, but on this day, the seas were calm. Spirit was able to send a tender ashore, bringing goodies to the staff on the island. They also brought along the guests’ passports for the much-coveted Cape Horn stamp, providing proof that they sailed in this region!
