Why we like the MV Ushuaia

  • With only 88 passengers aboard, everyone can disembark at the same time, which allows for longer landings
  • Very friendly, experienced largely Argentinean staff
  • Consistently high customer feedback of 9.3 out of 10 last season
  • En-suite bathrooms in all cabins apart from Twin Standards which share a bathroom between two cabins. Usefully, each cabin also has its own wash basin
  • Spacious outer deck areas which are excellent for wildlife watching
  • Very competitively priced
  • Important: all departures are bi-lingual, conducted in both English and Spanish
