QM2 SET TO ROUND THE CAPE.

Byline: Daily News

The stately Queen Mary 2, its parent company located in landlocked Valencia, will be the largest ocean liner in history to round Cape Horn under a new Path of Magellan Historic Passage cruise to be offered next year.

The 12-day Cape Horn and Chilean Fjords cruise sailing from Rio de Janeiro on Jan. 27 and arriving in Valparaiso on Feb. 8, is the second segment of the famous ship's 36- or 38-day South American maiden voyages sailing around the tip of South America and passing picturesque regions of Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina and Chile.

The eastbound reverse itinerary embarks from Valparaiso on March 22 and arrives in Rio on April 3.

The ship, part of Valencia-based Cunard Line, will follow the route Ferdinand Magellan who sailed his way through these territories in 1520.

The four-part itinerary begins in Rio de Janeiro with stops in Montevideo, Uruguay, site of the last Spanish-built military bastion in that nation.

Another two days at sea will bring the ship around Cape Horn and the next port of call, Ushuaia, Argentina. The next stop is on the other side of the cape in Punta Arenas, Chile, before a cruise through the scenic Chilean fjords.
