You will love the cruisingย  around "the end of the world" but you may not find the ship to be on par with what you are used to.

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin and its service were well done.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Did the best they could but when the check in terminal is miles from the ship it makes it tough. Same deal on the departure. Ship and terminal were bus rides apart.
Ship Quality
Ship designed well. Noticeable absence of the constant cleaning of the ship seen on other cruise lines. In fact, took a picture on day two of numerous finger smudges on an elevator door. Same smudges there on day 14's disembarkation.
Destinations and Excursions
Took the end of the world train...a good experience. Took the horse farm,winery and Santiago excursion...horrific ! Bus got lost. At the horse show, we were late for the welcome snacks and pisco sours...they had given out. No decent seats left for the horse show itself. In Santiago, we stopped at a bathroom and drove up to a vista of the city...THAT"S IT. Very disappointing that we couldn't explore a little of the city.
Onboard Activities
The lectures on astronomy were superb. The guest lecturer was able to transform a very complex subject into easy to understand and entertaining talks.
Service and Staff
Room steward was great. Staff in Vines wine bar very attentive and friendly. Many of the general staff need training on customer service.
Food and Dining
Food in general was average. Food in specialty steak house was superb. Food in specialty Italian restaurant was terrible.
