Star Princess prevented from docking in Ushuaia, Argentina, after Falklands visit

Star Princess has been prevented from visiting Ushuaia by Argentine authorities after the ship made a scheduled call to Port Stanley in the Falkland Islands at the weekend.

It is not known if further cruises will be affected by this ruling that could see similar action by Argentina against the ship.

What do you think of this move by Argentina?

Could it damage Argentina's tourism business?

Well the locals will lose out for sure and if Argentina want to lose revenue banning cruise ships will do it.

The BBC just had an interview with a journalist onboard a British ship that was turned away this morning. They said there were 2 ships turned away but did not give the name of the other one.

I think it is a shame that it was turned away. I admit to not really understanding the politics of it, but never the less, it is too bad that this has happened.
