The elegant SH Vega prides itself on offering an extraordinary culinary experience that combines varied international trends in food and drinks, sometimes with a local accent, with healthy, energy-packed ingredients and plenty of protein for the explorer in you. Menus will please the most discerning of palates, with healthy menus showcasing fresh, local ingredients and menus to serve special dietary requirements.

Breakfast  will include a wide range of hot, cold and cooked-to-order items. Expect daily chef ‘specials’ and eggs cooked to order.

Lunch might consist of a salad bar and soup and other starter items followed by pasta, fish, meat, veggie options and a variety of hot and cold desserts. There will always be a cheese board and coffee and tea. House wines and beer are served with lunch or dinner.

Dinner is served a la carte, and will be akin to fine dining, with friendly informality. Expect nothing but the finest dishes – creative, healthy and with service to match. Enjoy our choice of fine wines, served throughout the meal.

Yes, there are hairdryers, personal safes and minibars in each cabin. Electrical current is 110, which is the US standard. We recommend bringing along a power strip so that you both may recharge phones, cameras and add additional items such as a curling iron.

There are also USB ports in each cabin for charging electronics.

Santiago: The mild autumn climate in Santiago, Chile makes for one of the best times to visit with highs in the low 80s°F by day and high 70s°F at night.

Atacama Desert: With its stark mountains, sprawling salt flats, clear high-altitude lakes, and centuries-old cultures, the Atacama desert is one of Chile’s top tourist destinations, especially during the summer months of December through March when the heat and long days make it easy to explore and get to know the area through hiking.
 
Paracas: The weather is awesome in March in Paracas. The average high during this season is between 84.9°F (29.4°C) and 77°F (25°C), which makes the best time to travel there and enjoy the sunny and warm weather.

Lima: The best time to visit Lima is from December to April. Since Lima is in the Southern Hemisphere, these months offer warm, summer weather (sometimes upward of 80 degrees).

 

 

A passport is required for travel to South America. Be sure to confirm that your passport is current and will be valid at least six months after your return date. If you do not have one or need a new one, contact the State Department Passport Office in your area immediately or visit their website.

Non US Citizens are responsible for verifying their own required documentation for this tour.

We recommend that you also make copies of your passport, driver’s license, photo identification card and/or birth certificate in case of loss, and carry them with you on your trip separate from your passport.

 

There is no baggage limit onboard ship.

Currently, most international airlines will allow you to check 1 bag weighing up to 50 pounds for no fee. In addition you may carry-on one bag plus a personal item such as a purse or briefcase. Please check with your air carrier for up-to-the-minute regulations and fees for checked baggage once you receive our air schedule from us approximately 75 days prior to our cruise departure.

 

 

Evenings aboard the ship are sometimes cool due to the air conditioning, so a coverup is essential if you tend to get cold easily.

Packing Tips: Take only what you need; don’t over pack. Save room for souvenirs and purchases. Pack flat and full to avoid wrinkling. Bring wardrobe basics; mix and match around one or two colors. Don’t pack anything valuable, fragile or perishable. Label your luggage with an outside tag, and place an identification card inside each suitcase.

Essential Items: We highly recommend that you bring the following items.

– A happy-go-lucky attitude
– A good, comfortable pair of broken-in walking shoes.
– A pair of shoes for restaurants (loafers, sandals, etc).
– Slacks, shorts and tops and keep dressing in layers in mind
– Collapsible umbrella (which can double as a sunshade parasol) and/or lightweight raingear.
– Ladies will want to bring a nicer warm wrap, and gentlemen a nicer jacket, for evening wear.
– Sunglasses, sun block, sun hat or visor.
– Toiletries: all your daily essentials.
– Prescription medications: sufficient supply for the entire trip plus legible written prescription in case of loss. Keep medications in their original, labeled container. Always pack your medications in your carry-on bag!
– Eyeglasses, contacts, contact lens solution. You may want to bring along a written prescription for your eyewear in case of loss.
– Over the counter medications: cold remedy, aspirin/pain reliever, antacid/stomach upset remedy, Band-Aids, money or other anti-bacterial medication.
– Travel alarm clock with illuminated face, especially for guests in an inside cabin.
– Travel journal/notepad and reading material.
– Small, basic sewing kit with a few extra buttons. Remember to pack scissors in your checked bag!

Cruising aboard SH Vega Expedition cruises are primarily concerned with what happens outside the ship, so dress codes are very relaxed. There are no formalities at mealtimes.

At breakfast and lunch, wear the clothes you are going to wear for your tour. Once you have changed out of your touring attire in the evening, you will want to put on something casual and comfortable.

During the daytime around the ship, you will want casual slacks, jeans or smart sportswear.
Evening is casual too – perhaps pack a couple of casual shirts and or skirts/dresses. Keep footwear to a minimum. On board a pair of lightweight sneakers or similar will suffice, while slippers should be worn in your cabin only.

Swimwear, T-shirts and shorts are not allowed in restaurants after 5:30 pm.

Onboard the ship, the official currently is the US dollar.  Your credit card will be accepted to settle your bill onboard the ship, as well as in major shops and restaurants ashore. All onboard purchases are billed with a guest check and added to your personal shipboard account. At the end of the cruise, you will receive a total bill, which can be paid with cash or charged to a credit card.

Some credit card companies may charge small international transaction fees, so it’s best to check with your provider before leaving home.

All countries you will visit have laws against the purchase and export of certain items, including antiquities, national cultural property and certain animal products, especially endangered species (ivory, rhino horn, tortoise shell, coral, feathers, etc.).

What Our Members Are Saying

I just came back from a fantastic Mediterranean vacation aboard the Norwegian Epic. STI was fantastic from the office staff to our cruise hostesses June and Georgia. I look forward to traveling with STI again in the future!

The Epic Med cruise was fantastic. It was my first trip to Europe and was a nice taste of Spain, Italy and France. The day I saw there was a cruise without a single supplement was when I signed up. Nice group and made lots of new friends. Thanks STI!
