Spirit of the Glaciers

Dear Readers,

Has anyone had a recent experience with MarPatag cruises? Is this more interesting than the Todos Los Glaciers tour? I am trying to figure out what to do in Calafate and the choices seem to be - Todos Los Galciers, MarPatag and Mini trekking/The Big Ice. I welcome suggestions and comments! I will have only 2 1/2 days in Calafate and would like to go horseback riding on my last 1/2 day.

We also have 2 1/2 days in El Calafate, and our plan is to do the Todos Los Glaciares on Day-1, which is all day, Mini-trekking on Perito Mereno on Day-2, again all day, and the third half-day we are going out to an Estancia Nibepo Aike where we can see some sheep shearing, eat Patagonian lamb, ride horses and walk around Lago Roca.

The MarPatag cruises are switching to a 3-day-2-night cruise starting Dec.18, so you may not even have enough time to do it, plus it takes away from other opportunities/
