My wife and I joined the Star Princess for a 32 day Andes cruise which started from Buenos Aires and finished in Los Angeles. From the outside the ship looked very impresive but this did not reflect when we got to our cabin on the 11th ... Read more

We were on the February 29 cruise from Buenos Aires to Valparaiso. The itinerary enthralled us and did not disappoint. Obviously, some ports were better than others. We arrived in Santiago on the 28th and had made our own arrangements for ... Read more

Checking in to the cruise was quick and easy, 10 minutes from arrival at the ship until we were in our cabin. Arrangements for first evening's dinner were a bit confusing and our cabin steward didn't seem to know that it was open ... Read more

Our 14 night Cape Horn and Strait of Magellan was very memorable. We were the first cruise of the season to be able to dock at all the ports. The seas were rough a couple of nights but the ship handled it very well. Our Captain was very ... Read more

We began our arrival with taking pre cruise trips to Lima Peru, Iquazu Falls and then on to Buenos Aires. Arrival was ok and got aboard and our cabin was already ready. Then on to Horizon court for a little lunch. I have food ... Read more

We arrived in Buenos Aires and was transported to our hotel. Very nice hotel and very accommodating. The people were always there to help. Boarding the ship was quite lengthy because it was a container port and we had to take a bus ... Read more

We recently took a cruise on Voyage 9602A (Booking reference DM6J6V) on board Star Princess from Buenos Aires to Santiago (Valparaiso). Our stateroom was B401. Let me say from the outset that this cruise was an absolute disgrace and ... Read more

We are veteran Princess cruisers and we have several more booked. This was not one of my favorite cruises but I still enjoyed it. We arrived in Buenos Aires, Argentina and took a taxi to our hotel, Hilton, and spent one night there. The ... Read more

We just returned from a 31 day cruise to South America. It certainly was below average for Princess. Shore excursions were horrible and the fact that the shore ex. department lie made everything worse. We has a pre paid visit to a ... Read more

This was our third Princess cruise. Overall not up to par with previous Princess or other cruise line cruises, but we are not sorry that we took this cruise. Exceeding our expectations, the food and service in the dining rooms was the ... Read more

Having cruised many times with princess we had the normal expectations of our previous cruises. What a shock we were in for.....first main meal on board was to say the least a disaster. Arrived at the dining room at 8.30pm, at 9.45pm we ... Read more

We are Elite cruisers with Princess and have chosen their ships for our last five or six cruises. We chose this cruise because of its itinerary--from Buenos Aires, around the Horn to Los Angeles with a side trip to Machu Picchu. First, ... Read more

I agree with much of what smajy said in his review. But I would add a few more comments. Our biggest disappointment was the lack of intellectual content to the "Enrichment Lectures." South America has a rich culture and history. We had ... Read more

It is clear to me that Argentina does not welcome tourists, particularly Americans. I have never seen so many security lines--it took four hours from arriving in BA to the ship. And Americans have to pay a $160 reciprocity fee to get into ... Read more

I just got back from this tour and found the following: Automatic doors on public washrooms were rare. The balcony was useless to me in a wheelchair although my wife enjoyed it. Had I known about the useless balconies I could have saved ... Read more
