Review summary

The crew members did their best, the evening shows were well performed and polished., cabin service was excellent, HOWEVER the embarkation was a total disaster, highly disorganized, it took over four hours to board the ship, very poor administration, some on board activities had no shows by the activity person, It would help for the top admisnistrators of the cruise line to undergo the process anonimously so they can experience the very poor organization to board the ship in Santos.

The La ventana tango show was the best show I've ever seen sponsered by a cruise line, the city tour was below average due to the poor attitude of the tour guide, she left people at serveral stops
Don't Miss: The La ventana tango show
