One day excursion

Hi everyone,

We will be on the Golden Princess Doing Santiago to Rio beginning Dec 21, 2013. The cruise stops in Valpariso (Chile), Punta Areanas (Chile), Ushuaia (Argentina), Falkland Islands (Stanley), Buenos Aires (Argentina), Montevideo (Uruguay), and Rio De Janeiro (Brazil). We are a couple in our mid 20's and are pretty adventurous. We would much rather do excursions on our own than go with ones Princess provides.

Any suggestions on what we should do when we visit the Falkland islands? I would like to see the penguins but noticed there are a few different places to go. Please let me know if you have any insight you can provide. We are there from 8AM to 6PM.

For more info you can read older posts on here, or the Falklands tourism sites. Penguins are all over, but mainly on private land, which costs to access. Gypsy Cove is near Stanley and on government land.

Tours mainly do history/culture; Battlefields; or wildlife, or a combination..

An all-day tour will cost whether done by the ship or privately.

I am thinking of doing the same ship, the same itinerary in Jan. 2015. How was your experience? Did you find any problems during the cruise, such as food etc.?
