Kids Cruise Free in Patagonia

Boutique Auckland-based travel company World Journeys have a special ‘kids cruise free’ offer on select Australis expedition-style cruises in the spectacular land and seascapes of Patagonia, when booked by 31 May 2019. The offer applies to one child (under 17 years old) sharing a cabin with an adult, on departures during December 2019 (excluding 30 Dec 2019). Port taxes and National Park fees are still payable for the ‘free child’, and the offer is entirely subject to availability. For a taste of the experience on offer, check out the 4 night “Australis Cruising in Patagonia” package, which cruises from Punta Arenas in Chile, through the fjords of Tierra del Fuego down to Cape Horn, ending in Ushuaia (Argentina). Priced from US$2,538 per person (share twin), this includes 4 nights in a Category B cabin, transfers and transport, all meals and an open bar, lectures and excursions led by expert naturalist guides, port taxes and National Park fees. Contact World Journeys or view the package online.
