Excellent cruise, fantastic staff
Star Princess Cruise Review to South America
Our first trip to the Southern Hemisphere and it was fabulous. From meeting at the airport to checking in and hitting a bar as soon as we got on while we waited for our luggage to catch up with us everybody we met from Princess was on top form, smiling, friendly, helpful, showing off, making us feel special. As we'd been saving up and planning this for a long time we went for a mini suite this time so that we could gaze up at the stars around South America and that didn't disappoint either. Every stop was great - although the coach trip to see the penguins was dull and long - and we were happy to get into the Falklands which not every ship manages and to experience a little bit of the rough seas we were hoping for around Cape Horn. Ushuaia was stunningly beautiful and the trip down the Beagle Channel to see the seals, though bitterly cold, was unforgettable. Managed to tick off loads of amazing experiences on this trip: ate Argentinian steak, cable car above the clouds up a volcano, Falkland Islands, Chilean glacier, Cape Horn, penguins in their natural habitat, whales passing the ship, a dolphin jumping alongside the tender boat, an albatross flying around the promenade, rode a steam train, danced with a Uruguayan tango dancer. Loved riding the escalator to Skywalkers every night and every member of waiting staff we encountered were the best they could possibly be.
