Navimag is a cargo ship that travels from Puerto Natales to Puerto Montt through the Fjordes and the Pacific Ocean along the Chilean coast. They converted part of the ship to accomodate up to 400 tourists who party 4 nights away.... Night one and two were great, lots of drinks in the bar meeting fellow travellers. May is the low period so we barely had 40 people, still great though.
We got out into the open Pacific Ocean with rough seas in the early morning so night 3 was dead. Nobody got out of bed!!! I took seasickness pills so i was O.K but had nobody to play with so i too went to bed :(.
Night 4 was a big night as everyone was well rested up and looking forward to farewell festivities. Lots of drinks, luaghs and dancing.
The boat is comfortable, there are 22 bed dorms, 4 bed cabins (with and without windows)and luxury suites. I opted for the window cabin and was luck enough to have it to myself!!! :)
There is a little entertainment on board, like movies, documentaries, chess etc. In the high season there is also a guide to talk to and ask questions etc.
Really cool, expensive at USD$275 for a dorm bed (i got a student discount with my room and only paid $4 more that the dorm people!!!),i imagined it would be great in the high season with more people and icebergs.
