The cruise was excellent in almost all respects.  Accommodations were comfortable, food very good, many entertainment options, and excellent service by all staff.  Only shortcoming was inefficient use of tenders and insufficient time at Ushiaia/Tierra del Fuego stop.

Ship tip

Try to buy excursion tours, especially for penguins at Puerto Madryn and Stanley, from local companies, as Princess tours are overpriced. Also, get to theater early, as it completely fills up.

Ports of call

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Port Stanley, Falkland Islands

5 out of 5
Volunteer point has the large king penguin colony, as well as magellenic and gentoo penguins. DO NOT miss this, and save more than $100/pp by booking tour locally.
