We chose this cruise because of the "rounding Cape Horn" opportunity, and we were not disappointed. Captain Dinas circumnavigated the island brilliantly and even dispatched a small boat to the island to have our passports ... Read more

I took this cruise to be with family members for a non profit fund raiser. The reunion was excellent. The entertainment was great as were the restaurant and cabin attendants. The public areas of the ship are well maintained and ... Read more

We were among the very lucky cruisers on the March 13 sailing who actually circumnavigated the Island of Horn at Cape Horn, thanks to our excellent Capt. Dimas Manrique, and Mother Nature's gift of relatively calm seas. This cruise was ... Read more

First, I'll start with the positives. The ports were amazing, the staff was very friendly, the ship is just the right size to tour the Chilean Fjords. The captain was a very friendly and noticeable person. For the most part, he kept us ... Read more

We did this cruise from Feb 28 to Mar 13 2016. It took us to Puerto Montt, Puntas Arenas, the Chilean Fjords, Ushuaia (the end of the world port, southern most city in the world), then up to Montevideo and Buenos Aires. About 5,000 miles ... Read more

Arrived in San Paolo to chaos at 5 am. 1 guy trying to corral 500 passengers, tag them and get them on buses who had trouble speaking English. Arrival at Santos was even worse. 3 large ships turnover passengers at 8 am in a terminal ... Read more

In advance of our 7-night South American cruise sailing from Santos, I read a lot of reviews from Americans complaining about various aspects of this sailing. Mostly, they seemed upset that not everything in Santos, Brazil is as ... Read more

Not at all interested in Royal Caribbean's big ship activities. I'm not into sky diving, surfing, rock climbing or zip lining so I figured the 2000 person Rhapsody would be a good choice I like the smaller ships. Not good choice at all. ... Read more
