The Falkland Islands (also called Las Malvinas by Argentina) are located in the South Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Argentina. The culture of the islands is definitely British, but Argentina has long claimed the islands as its own.

Cruise ships sailing along the eastern coast of South America between Buenos Aires and Valparaiso, Chile often include the Falkland Island capital of Stanley as a port of call. Cruise ships sailing to Antarctica from Ushuaia, Argentina or to South Georgia Island also usually stopover in the Falklands.
