14 Night Strait Of Magellan & Cape Horn (Santiago To Buenos Aires)
Sail Date: February 15, 2016
Ship: Star Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: C509
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

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.

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.

Ship Tip

The food was just so so

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