Cruising around South America

Sail Date: December 20, 2015

Reviewed: 11 months ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

This cruise was relaxing, entertaining, informative - everything I hoped for and more.  The room was comfortable and clean, the cabin attendants were extremely courteous and helpful.  The food was delicious, and we found a service team who made each meal a delight.  They watched and remembered our reactions to food and offered options they thought we would appreciate.  We had very good experiences with our shore excursions, especially the trip to the penguin preserve, which I will remember for the rest of my life. The entertainers were talented and enthusiastic, and the cruise staff encouraged participation by all.

Cabin / Stateroom
Room was a nice size, and had ample storage for us. The veranda was fun, except for the afternoon it started getting cold and the door was stuck so I couldn't get in until my daughter got back to open from the inside.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Embarkation seemed to go pretty well. Disembarkation was a mess - maybe because a lot of people seemed to ignore the number process so the schedule was not met and lines were long.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Chile and Argentina excursions were amazing. Both of the Uruguay tours we took were pretty basic and a little boring. Major problems on two occasions with re-boarding at end of day. First day coming in from Chile was a horrible experience.
Onboard Activities
Enjoyed various trivia games, tried some dancing lessons, and attended all of Milos' talks (he was terrific).
Children's Programs Not applicable.
Entertainment
Lounge bands were talented, dancers terrific. Some of the vocals for the big shows were not very strong. Particularly loved the pianist, the Motown quartet, and the Russian acrobat couple.
Service and Staff
Gedet, Ayuni, and Liudmyla were exceptional dining staff. Kleyn & Judas were wonderful cabin attendants.
Food and Dining
Staff watched over food quality. When an undercooked chicken item was noted, manager immediately removed it.
Valparaiso (Santiago), Chile
Puerto Montt, Chile
Scenery was beautiful. Stagger return times of tours or coordinate better with local authorities to avoid re-boarding mess.
Cruise Chilean Fjords
Cruise Strait Of Magellan
Punta Arenas, Chile
Ushuaia, Tierra Del Fuego, Argentina
Cruise Cape Horn
Puerto Madryn, Argentina
I LOVED the penguins!
Punta Del Este, Uruguay
Tour was rather limited, but that may be because the one we wanted was cancelled due to holiday.
Montevideo, Uruguay
Tour guide had limited English - maybe only the script and a pretty boring delivery.
Buenos Aires, Argentina
