Ship Facts: Crown Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Crown Princess Deck Plans
Great Overview of South America

This cruise made us realize just how diverse South America is. After taking the Pacific Princess107 day World Cruise in 2012, we knew we would enjoy this long cruise. The mixture of big cities, important events, variety of temperatures, wildlife, and small towns made this an ever-interesting cruise. We resisted the temptation to go off-ship for several days and instead enjoyed the shipboard activities and relaxation between ports. There is so much more to see in SA tat we have decided to do a land tour in the near future. Of special note are two shore excursions: Falkland Islands and Pisco, Peru. In the falklands we were warmly greeted by residents who made sure that we had an excellent experience. We went to Bluff Cove to see the 600 penguins that also reside there. In true British fashion, we were treated to home baked goodies and hot tea. In Pisco, we visited the Balestas Islands where we got to see sealions and their pups by the hundreds, birds by the thousands and even more penguins. In Coquimbo, Chile after visiting the very large fish market, we had a close up view of sea lions enjoying the leftovers from the market. Of course, the cities held our attention with Carnivale in Rio, beautiful tree lined streets and numerous parks of BuenosAires, tango dancing, ranch tours and more. Although we would have preferred a smaller ship on this route, the Crown Princess was comfortable and the walking necessary to reach the various venues helped us to keep our weight in check.
