I am planning a 3 month solo trip to South America. Rather than doing a grand tour of the continent I have decided to concentrate on 3-4 countries between Nov14-Jan15. Those include: Brazil (small part of it ;-)), Bolivia, Argentina and (fingers crossed) Antarctica.
Does anyone has recommendation regarding Antarctica cruises? I read in few blogs that it is cheaper to book it directly once in Ushuaia. However after checking with few travel agents, they tell me that most of them are already booked out and they only have few last spots available.
Can anyone also advise what is the easiest way to get 1 spot in shared room. I am travelling by myself and do not want to pay a Single Supplement. I would be quite happy to share the room (again, travel agencies are telling me that this may not be possible).
I would love to hear from people that have already visited the 7th continent.
Thanks for your help.
