Review summary

It was really a lifetime and lifelong experience, no doubt! I've been at many places already, but... this is on the top! Absolutely worth the money, you really feel yourself in heaven.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Everything went smoothly, however at Stanley you need to have luck as well...

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Canaan - I believe Oceanview was one of the best spots of the ship. :)

Oceanview Cafe and Bar

4 out of 5

Every 'fastfood' should look like this. All types of food and all nations are there... You will be full and satisfied! Ice cream and pizza bar next to each other... Hmm.. Why 4? You should be smart to keep your place, if you want to get your next course and leave your seat unattended, that will quickly be re-occupied by others. The Team would be advised to 'build' a long table where - like in a bar - you always would find a free spot.

Moonlight Sonata Restaurant

Best dining experience ever, the staff, the food, the environment... Everything as 'ordered'.

Fitness center was first class (liked the cycling game), the table tennis championship...

Shops on the Boulevard

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
No exception, all of them were wonderful people! Especially Martin, Zdenec, Francis, Jason, Savio, Zsanett (from Hungary!)

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
There was always someone around to clean the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
For 1 person it is really comfortable, for 2 this may be a little small. Well equipped, everything in hand, the view is great (stars on the sky during the first night - direct view from the bed!) My cabin steward was an angel!

Ports of call

Buenos Aires, Argentina

3 out of 5
No huge issues, however the registration and check-in was really long and cumbersome. Someone told that this is his 30th cruise but the worst experience. Quinquela Martin is not for this kind of gathering... The people should be taken from elsewhere to the ship.

Ushuaia, Tierra Del Fuego, Argentina

5 out of 5
You should try the king crab at Tia Elvira, the ship cruise around Beagle and the tour to the National Park

Cruise Cape Horn

5 out of 5
We could make the turn, great experience and views.

Take a tour to the penguins! The people are really nice and friendly here! Bluff Cove Lagoon tour was taken. 4x4 drive was also a fun!

Puerto Madryn, Argentina

5 out of 5
Take a tour to the penguins! This is (really!) not a replica of Stanley! Visited Punta Tombo.

Montevideo, Uruguay

5 out of 5
Our guide (on the tour where we had the carnaval at the end) was excellent, he was knowledgable and funny as well - ironic jokes on Uruguay. :) You should meet with the Murgas and dance, sing with them!

Disembarkation

Too quick. :)
