Catching the blog up on the whirlwind of the week that we have had, Here is a summary and some pictures from Tuesday through Thursday of this week!
We were booked to travel on the Le Lyrial on Monday, 17 January 2022. We received confirmation of booking on Tuesday 18 January 2022. We started traveling on Wednesday 19 January 2022. It was a very early morning heading to the airport by 4am. The first leg of our flight left at 6:50 am arriving in Miami.
We then had a day to spend in Miami before leaving later that night. We were scheduled to depart Miami at 7:35pm. Unfortunately due to a medical emergency in the boarding area we were delayed in boarding. Once we boarded, then a family decided they would not be making the trip and we needed to wait for both families luggage to be removed from the airplane. We finally took off for Buenos Aires at 9:45pm and arrived at 8:30am the next morning Argentina Time (6:30am Eastern Time). We gathered our luggage and were cleared by Argentine immigration and customs.
Once we arrived at the hotel arranged by Ponant, the Sofitel Buenos Aires we received our COVID-19 PCR testing for the cruise ship (Mid-turbinate and throat swabs), checked into our room and had the day to ourselves. Dinner was provided at the hotel bt the cruise line and we prepared for another early day of travel on Friday 21 January 2022 with a 3am wake up call, 3:30am breakfast and be onboard the buses bound for EZE Buenos Aires International Airport for our flight to Ushuaia.
