14 Night Cape Horn Route From Rio (Rio De Janeiro To Santiago)
Sail Date: January 04, 2016
Ship: Star Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: C626
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Poor organization and communication with passengers. Embarkation in Rio was and a half hour nightmare. Ship was shabby and in need of refurbishment. We got stranded in Punta Areas for 6 hours and were left standing in the cold, damp terminal for hours without information from Princess. 2 ports of call were cancelled because of weather, which I understand, however no supplementary arrangements were made.  This is an exciting trip but the Star Princess was an unpleasant experience at best.  I am a very experienced cruiser , this was the worst ever.
