If you have the time, I would recommend going down to Ushuaia and booking last minute. Out of 44 passengers on my ship, about 12 of us booked last-minute in Ushuaia. I met someone who went on the bigger ship and was told that out of 120 passengers about 30 booked last-minute. This was in the beginning of February so I am not sure if it is as easy at other times.
If you have to wait a week or more before your ship leaves there is quite a bit to do in Ushuaia, or you could go visit Torres del Paine National Park and/or Punta Arenas in Chile for a few days.
