Ushuaia, Beagle Channel

This morning we woke up in Ushuaia, where we were greeted by an exceptionally calm and sunny day. Our passengers disembarked before 8:00 am and as is usual during our port days, all crew and staff frantically labored to get the ship back in shape for our next batch of passengers.

Passengers started arriving around 1:30 pm, were checked into their cabins and they were free to explore the ship. We set sail at 8:30 pm, and shortly afterward the Captain Hansen hosted a meet-the-staff-and-crew presentation in the observation lounge on deck seven. People stayed around the observation lounge late into the night, as the Fram sailed down the scenic Beagle channel en route to the Drake Passage.
