14 Night South America (Buenos Aires To Valparaiso)
Sail Date: April 12, 2009
Ship: Radiance of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 9 years ago

We were 1st time cruisers and have to say the ship and the staff on the radiance of the sea was above our expectations. We were the last group to go around cape horn as carribean cruise lines has dropped this from its list. The day we rounded the cape it was clear and sunny (cool ) and the ocean was as calm as you could get it. Overall it was well worth going.
