Beginning, middle and end were good but some of the other ports were just OK.

Some of the ports really had very little to offer. The excursions were overpriced and not very exciting. Montevideo was littered with cigarette butts all over the city. I can't believe the city doesn't take more pride to how they look to visitors. Skip the Falklands and just go to big local zoo to see penguins and sea lions. It wasn't worth the money or the 5 hours on the bus to see them.

Cabin / Stateroom
Something should be done with the that shower curtain. They should take a lesson from Royal Caribbean. The staterooms are starting to get dated and could use some upgrades.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Princess needs to do a better job about notifying you that there is a reciprocity fee for Argentina. We almost missed our ship having to fill these out at the last minute. The port people said Princess is the worst cruise ling for getting this done ahead of time

It was to windy and we never landed in this port. The captain made a good decision to go to the next port.

Took a 7 hour excursion of which 5 hours was spent on a bus. Not a good excursion. Too long and way overpriced
