We went on board the navimag from porta natales to Porta montt and it was one of the worst experiences of our six month travels.
The on board addition of cows transported live for slaughter who were crammed in horrific conditions, made to stand for 4 days and not able to lie down and whose stench only intensified sea sickness- which was already unbearable- made the trip horrendous.
The navimag charges western prices and therefore opens itself up to certain standards and scrutiny. With those prices comes a responsibility. Although we appreciate that animal treatment in chile is of a different standard to what we're used to we felt like some of that high price should have gone to the poor animals.
Trying to fall asleep at night with the distressed sound of the animals and the over powering stench made the experience incredibly unpleasant.
If you want to take the navimag we hope you will also take the time to raise these issues with the crew as the more people who protest the more navimag must take responsibility for these issues
