14 Night South America Passage (Buenos Aires To Valparaiso)
Sail Date: December 08, 2014
Ship: Zaandam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 3379
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 3 years ago

Everybody was very friendly, staff and fellow passengers!

There were many activities organized  by the staff. Food was good and shows also good. We enjoyed also the side music as the piano and violin players.

Down sizes:

Our first stateroom was on the third level under the kitchen! It was permanently noisy .After complaining we got a better stateroom.

 Before booking verify what is above your place.

The shore excursions were very expensive for what they were offering. There were many offers outside the ship and  much more reasonable for the same service or better.

The places that we visited. in the Falkland Islands and. in Patagonia were ok but not spectacular. .For instance In Puerto Montt we traveedl each way 90 minutes to see a medium size waterfall.
