We had one final (and very early) breakfast buffet on the boat while docked in Ushuaia so that everyone could be off by 8am.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Albatros Ushuaia
This is a clean, well-run place with everything you could want. WiFi is in the cafe/restaurant but the coffee is good and the staff are pleasant, particularly if you at least try to order in Spanish!
