Curious what a typical cruise day with Vegan Travel is like?
MORNING: WELCOME TO YOUR VEGAN ADVENTURE!
You can take it easy in your stateroom, or start your active morning with a walk around the deck. Or how about some early morning meditation or yoga? Sunrise at sea, while we cruise through Patagonia, can be breathtaking and very early risers are rewarded with a lovely sight.
A number of delicious all vegan breakfast options are available on the buffet!
DAYTIME ACTIVITIES: MANY CHOICES
A number of adventurous and informative shore excursions to discover Patagonia’s incredible flora, fauna and geology is offered. All are undertaken in trusty Zodiacs, inflatable boats that allow exploration of narrow fjords and shallow bays where larger vessels cannot venture. Zodiacs are also perfect for Patagonia expeditions on secluded islands, rocky beaches and small piers. In addition to learning about the history and nature of the Fuegian Archipelago, shore excursions afford an opportunity to stretch your legs on guided hikes to secluded waterfalls and the bottom of tidewater glaciers, along pristine beaches and rocky shores, and through primeval sub-polar forest. Whether from the Zodiac boats or on foot, excursions are also an excellent way to observe and photographic the marvelous array of animals that live along the waterways of Patagonia — elephant and leopard seals, Andean condors and Caracara falcons, thousands of penguins and scores of other bird species.
LUNCHTIME: HUNGRY? GREAT!
A great lunch will be served in the main dining room.
DINNER TIME: AN ELEGANT EVENING AT SEA
As dinner approaches, it’s time to get ready for the evening. There is no dress code on our vegan adventure cruise – so dress as you like.
Before dinner, some passengers like to stroll the deck, enjoying a beautiful sunset over the water. Others prefer to sip a vegan Caipirinha in one of the lounges.
The main dining room will feature a four or five-course meal in an elegant setting.
A variety of cool entertainment options beckon for the evening.
Even for those who are not usually night owls, the convenience of the all-vegan Ventus Australis makes it easy to stay out: no driving and no parking, no cover charges, or strict dress codes. An adventure not to be missed!
OVERNIGHT – HAVE A GREAT NIGHT
The Ventus Australis sails through the night and arrives at the port early in the morning. Sleep well in your stateroom; the ship has excellent vegan bedding and black-out curtains that can help you catch up on rest.
MORNING IN PORT – FJORD CRUISING
If you have risen in time to enjoy the early morning, you can watch the ship dock. Not to be missed! The Chilean Fjords are spectacular.
Of course, you don’t have to leave the ship. You might want to stay aboard. The ship will be relatively quiet, as most guests are ashore joining one of the amazing tours that are included in your cruise fare.
DEPARTURE & SAIL-AWAY – YOU WILL BE BACK
Just before departure, go to the upper deck to watch the crew prepare for departure. Leaving a port / docking position is always very interesting, and the ship’s higher decks offer a great viewing platform.
