Review Summary

Had a wonderful tour\cruise.  One major contributing factor was the excellent weather allowing max visibility and comfort.

All tours were arranged through Princess lines and each tour bus was close to the ship, timely and informative. Last cruise booked two cruises thru Crusiesonly and were a bust.

The natural history tour was only fair. Suggest take the wildlife tour as those raved about diversity of animals seen.
