Argentina: Strikes cause disruption

There have been problems in recent weeks for a number of ships calling at Argentinian ports. On 20 November 2012 two ships operated by One Ocean Expeditions, Akademik Ioffe and Akademik Sergey Vavilov, were prevented from sailing due to a national strike. Subsequently, the call at Port Stanley in the Falkland Islands by Aidacara on 3 December 2012 was cancelled after disruption and protests at Argentinian ports against ships calling at the Falkland Islands.

vSeabourn Sojourn was delayed by about seven hours at Buenos Aires on 4 December 2012, thought to have been in protest at the ship’s next call at Port Stanley on 8 December 2012. Later,Regent Seven Seas Cruises cancelled a February Falklands call scheduled for Seven Seas Mariner, and Oceania cancelled a call by Regatta around the same time.

P&O Cruises, who also have Falkland calls planned, have taken a different course and will not be calling at Argentinian ports until further notice. The three Argentina port calls by Arcadia and Adonia have been cancelled, with passengers scheduled to embark or disembark in Buenos Aires doing so in Montevideo, Uruguay.
