Review summary

This was a 64 day cruise from Miami around South America traveling around Cape Horn and back through the Panama Canal to Miami. The longest cruise we have taken to date and we can honestly say we hated to see it end. The people we met, both passengers and crew were delightful. The only negative we experienced was the location of the ship in some ports. The docking was often in container terminals that you could not walk through and frankly were dangerous, shuttles to and from town were often $8 each way per person. On the wholethis was a fabulous trip and yes we would definately do it again.

Ship tip

Our second sailing with Captain Rickard Lorentzen, very personable, always greeting passengers around the ship. So sorry that Princess has sold this wonderful ship.
