We had an early morning start - the Captain thought it would be nice for the guests to have a white Christmas by seeing Brujo Glacier. The glacier come from the Southern Patagonian icefield. The expanse of ice is second only to the Canadian/Alaska Kluane/Wrangle field. The Patagonia icefield covers 16,800 km. It and Kluane are the largest icefields outside of the polar regions.
The Glacier from 1.5 nautical miles. I provided commentary from the bridge. Despite being 7:30 Christmas morning quite a few guests came out (of course having a loudspeaker booming throughout the ship might have woken a few people up.....)
I then was off to give a lecture and introduced by Santa and his elves! How fitting is that!

After lunch Maria and I took time to open our gifts. Thank you Santa!
