Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Travelled on the Pursuit 6 months ago. Overall, quality of food was good but there seemed to be slight decline in menu choices in dining room that we couldn’t quite put our finger on. Buffet very good and easy to maneuver. Wait staff was a bit slow in offering coffee, tea, etc but they were very responsive and seemed to step up service after I noted this on my comment card.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Lecturers ( Broadway topics and history of region) were excellent and interesting.

White Night entertainment was great with local musicians and dancers brought on board! Otherwise, would have preferred more variety with their offerings

No children

Service and Staff

Room stewards were the best ever on this cruise. As previously noted buffet wait staff slow to offer coffee, tea in morning but quickly responded when issue noted on comment card. With few exceptions, staff was wonderful, friendly and responsive. Eager to please and make cruise experience most enjoyable

Did city tour on return to airport. Very good tour guide and very helpful, especially when arriving at airport by directing you to where you needed to go and what to do. Buenos Aires was a lovely city

Parati, Brazil

I have walked a lot of cobblestone streets in my travels but this was the worst! Tendered in and even the pier wasn’t that great but we were at the oldest, unrestored part of the town.

Buzios, Brazil

Rio De Janeiro, Brazil

Had 2 1/2 days in port. Did Christ the Redeemer and Sugerloaf mountain with beach excursions, both were very good. Got feeling city was not very safe.
