I think Torres del Paine was my favourite spot on the whole Cruise, and worthy of using Saint-Saëns Organ Symphony in the video to reinforce the grandeur of this unspoiled natural environment.

Thanks be to God . . . for parting the clouds for the sun to shine and the teal waters to glisten in the Torres del Paine National Park in Chile’s Patagonia. I’d also like to think that God played a hand in putting the blue colour in the icebergs that had broken away from the glacier and now floating in Lake Grey.
From grey, to green, to blue . . just amazing!
And . .. after we’d had our fill . . . the weather closed in again! We certainly had our fill of the Cuernos (Horns) del Paine, a magnificent range of mountains that continued to play hide and seek with clouds and rain all day. At the end of the day, expecting our luck to hold out for the legendary Torres del Paine pillars of rock, the clouds closed in, winds blew, but the perfume from rampant wild begonia dulled the disappointment as we watched and waited . . . in vain.
Stunning – The Torres del Paine National Park photo left me speechless. J
Hello Michael, I enjoy reading your blog! Incredible! Willy
Every time I look at the blog of Michael Musgrave I become outrageously envious at the places he visits and the experiences I am missing out on. On the brighter side – I do at least have one trip to look forward to – Kilimanjaro in 2013. John
Your blog is fantastic and as we are not great at taking photos it is a wonderful record of our trip. It was a great cruise even though I am 8 lbs heavier. However now I am back working I should get back to normal. Warmest regards, Carol

Hello cuz, I’ve only just had the time to sit down and have a close look at your blog. As usual, you have done a superb job … and the accompanying music was fantastic. You are getting great pics with your new camera.
