Review Summary

Food good, showroom shows 50-50 (liked the singing and dancing shows, not crazy about juggler and comedians). 

Penguin  tour at Punto Arenas was very tedious.  2 hours each way on a crowded boat with a bag lunch and no real concessions.  Seating as much as 10 abreast with very little room to walk around.  More suitable for a 20-minute commute than a 2-hour excursion.  Landing at the island had precarious footing with a board trying to connect with the ramp unsuccessfully, making us walk through slippery sea weed for several feet.  Amazing that we didn't fall.
