... As the morning progresses, there are periodic (and annoying) announcements that particular groups are cleared for disembarkation. With a smaller passenger load, disembarkation is much simpler.

... about what they would do if River lost! Not only was the atmosphere incredible but we were also super lucky with the game itself - it ended 3-2 to River Plate, with two penalties, a red card and plenty of other on pitch drama along the way! It was genuinely one of the best things I have done in South America and well worth the quite extortionate price I paid to go!!
