Review summary

This cruise has something for everyone about the same number of days at sea and in port. The ports we visited were interesting and wonderful places to visit. Be aware that the ports in Chile (except Valparaiso) and Stanley, Falkland Islands require tendering with Stanley being the longest. Visiting South America was experience I'll remember always.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Plenty of room for two and a comfortable bed. We had a port side cabin which lacked the fantastic views going from Buenos Aires to Santiago so chose starboard for that direction and port for Santiago to Buenos Aires.

Ship tip

Le Bistro is the best of the premium restaurants with extremely attentive staff. Windjammer Bar has excellent entertainment.

Went on trip to see penguins (which were fantastic), but our driver didn't tell us much of anything. She was always in a hurry and never spoke unless questioned and then only short answers.

Getting the tour to the airport or cruise is hotel is a relaxing way to get between Valparaiso and Santiago which is about an hour or so drive.
