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.

Puerto Montt had 15 buses arriving at port at once, creating lines for the tenders that took over an hour to service.
