We woke up in the Drake Passage headed north to our destination, Ushuaia, where our amazing adventure would come to an end. As a farewell treat, teatime featured Swedish pancakes with a variety of toppings, which we enjoyed on calm seas and under sunny skies as we sailed toward Cape Horn.

Between disembarkation briefings, we enjoyed staff presentations. For example, National Geographic photographer Camille Seaman showed her favorite images from this journey. Many of us contributed our five best images to the Guest Slideshow, which premiered during evening cocktails.

Afterward, Captain Yuri introduced our hard-working crew, who received a rousing round of applause. Our final dinner together was accompanied by a gorgeous sunset, which capped our special time together on National Geographic Explorer.
