Explore the glaciers around El Calafate in comfort whilst staying on the Santa Cruz.
Usually found exploring the nooks and crannies of Lago Argentino, the mid-size Santa Cruz motor cruiser is a superb alternative to staying at a hotel or estancia in El Calafate. Cabins are compact but not at the expense of quality and comfort and each has lower berths. 16 deluxe cabins have a queen bed convertible to twins, while the 4 Premium cabins are more spacious and positioned towards the front of the vessel. The Grand Suite, with a private balcony, is for those who really want to push the boat out. Fine Patagonian cuisine is served at the Salon Turquesa dining room, and the top-deck Calafate lounge has comfy chairs and panoramic windows: a perfect vantage point for incredible sunsets on the lake.
- Built Buenos Aires in 2010
- 40m long with 3 decks
- 21 en suite cabins for up to 42 guests
