The future of Argentina as a cruise destination was called into question on Thursday as a major line cancelled visits to the country through 2013, citing difficulty with recent arrivals.
The move comes in the wake of several cruise ships being refused entry to ports in Argentina or delayed upon arrival in the latest fallout from a long-simmering dispute between the UK and Argentina over the Falkland Islands.
