This was the most disappointing and terrible vacation.  The embarkation in Rio was a complete disaster.  We missed almost all our ports.  We did not stop at Falkland Islands.  We did not stop at Ushuaia.  We lost money on all our excursions.  We were almost killed on one of the Princess excursions to see the penguins, which we never saw.  We were stranded in the port in Punta Arenas.  IT WAS AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL all around.

Don't go! It's a slum.
Buenos Aires, Argentina
Port Stanley, Falkland Islands
Didn't stop here. Were woken up by the Captain at 4:30 am for medical evacuation, but who couldn't tell us that we were 5 hours away from Stanley. Stood in line for tender tickets for nothing.
Ushuaia, Tierra Del Fuego, Argentina
Didn't stop here either even though it's a docked port.
Punta Arenas, Chile
Almost killed here by one of the Princess Tours.
Valparaiso (Santiago), Chile
