I booked a 14-day cruise on the Norwegian Star with an itinerary that began straightaway on The Streets of Buenos Aires where I boarded the ship. From there, it was indeed on to Montevideo, Uruguay, Puerto Madryn, Argentina, Punta Arenas, Chile, Ushuaia, and Argentina. Then we cruised Stanley, the Falkland Islands, and the bays of Antarctica.
Since finally arriving in Buenos Aires two days before boarding, I had the chance for some fun sightseeing. Naturally, I’ve provided below some photos of the city to give you the vibe. The first two images are of the undeniably amazing The Tango de Mayo Hotel where I stayed. Tango de Mayo was definitely designed as a Vintage Tango Hotel with bathroom decals to match.
Below is the positively famous Cafe Tortoni, where patrons eagerly wait online to enter. It was established in 1858 and is certainly world-renowned.
Planetario Galileo Galilei
Next, you’ll see below the Planetario Galileo Galilei. In any case, we forgot to buy tickets online and it was sold out. That will certainly teach me!
We then bought a tour of the fabulous Teatro Colon, a world-famous opera house.
Here are some photos to specifically illustrate a famous area known as the La Boca-Caminito. Accordingly, it’s where the literati and artists hang out!
Gauchos and Dancers
To conclude our last day of the cruise, we returned to the streets of Buenos Aires. Despite a late-night flight, I booked an additional tour to visit a Spanish colonial ranch. There, I basically saw gauchos and dancers, and felt transported to another era. It was altogether marvelous!
I almost forgot to add my correspondly delightful Tango lesson, show, and dinner on an evening before the cruise. Enjoy the undoubtedly charming photos!
