The cruise started out nicely from Valparaiso Chile but started going downhill after the first few days as we had a captain from hell. We were supposed to enter the channel to see glaciers at 7:30 but the captain entered at 6:00 and it was all over by 7:30. We arrived at another port and the captain said that the waters were too rough for our boat trip to the island to see the penguins. The waters around the ship were calm for most of the day and a little turbulent for only about 30 minutes. Apparently it was safe enough for us to use tenders to and from shore. We were then supposed to see cape horn from the south but the captain steered the ship far to the east of the cape even though other smaller ships behind us were able to get as close as they wanted. The captain then continued to the Falkland Islands where once again he said that the winds ans seas were to rough to stop so we just went around them and continued back to the mainland. Here again the smaller ships got in. The ship itself is in desperate need of a face-lift. The best part of the trip was getting off the ship.

We ate in specialty restaurants every night. People who ate at Moderno said it was terrible. Tepanyaki was not as good as on other NCL ships. Le Bistro was good and so was Cagney's on most nights. La Cuchina was hit and miss. The ship itself had a nice layout.
