... Other travel agencies were offering the same price, and I was told the same at the tourist centre in Ushuaia. Turns out that cruise companies desperate to fill up their last remaining slots will send the same prices to everyone, so that's a-okay.
I ran back to my hostel looking for someone to talk to about this...and lo and behold, I ran into two people who just disembarked from their Antarctic journeys - Gesine from Germany, and Neel from the ...
