Quick and easy. San Antonio is a small port. We breezed through and were on the ship in about 20 minutes!

Especially enjoyed participating in Trivia and hearing the port lectures. The lectures by the College professor/Archeologist were outstanding! Fitness center was too crowded most of the time. Spa services were good.


Did not attend enough shows to be able to rate.

Visit to the Soccer Stadium was the highlight of the city tour. It was New Year's Day so most everything was closed.

Buenos Aires, Argentina

So much to see and do! If you love bookstores, go to the historic bookshop Ateneo Grand Splendid tucked away in the Recoleta neighborhood. It is a converted theater and is said to be on the the world's most beautiful. There is a good cafe up on the stage.
