Cruiser Star Princess
The British cruiser “Star Princess”, who left last week from Buenos Aires to Port Stanley, Falkland/Malvinas Islands, tested a “blockade” of Argentina to ships using ports or crossing national waters to travel to the archipelago South Atlantic.
The cruiser can be involved in the diplomatic dispute between Britain and Argentina for hydrocarbon exploration in the Falklands.
The Star Princess, which had not been asked permission to leave Buenos Aires, is scheduled to arrive tomorrow at Port Stanley, and then travel to the port of Ushuaia on the southern tip of Argentina.
“Everyone is very calm on board,” said a spokesperson for the “Star Princess”, to the media, “”things continue as usual and all of our passengers seem very happy. Nobody asked us anything about our trip to the Falklands (Malvinas). It’s part of our itinerary and we hope to reach destination ” the sposkesman added.
