From the October to April season, about 90 different ships carrying over 50,000 passengers are set to make the trip to Stanley, with successful voyages hinging on the weather. Last season seven voyages to the Falkland Islands were cancelled due to weather conditions, so cruise goers will have to wait and see what this season will bring.

Hublot Agrees to Tell Time for Seabourn Cruises

If you are going on a luxury cruise, nothing could be worse than the opulent ambience being ruined when you need the time and you look up to see a cheap and ugly wall clock glaring 2:45 back at you. Not only are you late for the magician/hypnotist show, but you’ve also been snapped out of your happy dream of being away from the world of average-looking clocks. If you choose Seabourn Cruises for your oceanic adventure however, Swiss luxury timepiece company Hublot will ensure that doesn’t happen. As Seabourn's new "official timekeeper," the deluxe watchmaker has created sophisticated wall clocks to be placed around the ship, so you are surrounded by only the most elegant timepieces while at sea. This collaboration should come as no surprise considering the two companies are overachievers in their respective fields. Seabourn has won a plethora of awards, readers choice, and otherwise. Hublot offers wristwatches going for a million dollars. Put the two together and you have a partnership to last the test of time.
