We were going to Patagonia, but we decided Uruguay would work better. Embarkation was problematic. We were robbed in security in Buenos Aires. Why have security cameras if the face is unclear? We got to see the film of the guy stealing ... Read more

We chose this trip when it went on sale in December. We had done the Valparaiso - Buenos Aires three years ago. We booked as we like long cruises with sea days. BUT not this time. We like sea days because Princesses has always had ... Read more

Took a once-in-a-lifetime 14-night cruise around South America on the Crown Princess — and it was fabulous! Here’s a review of the ship: The ship’s decor is beautiful. The design has a heavy Italian influence with ... Read more

We took this cruise as part of a longer holiday in South America. Frankly I am amazed at the two earlier whinging reviews published but then again, regular cruisers will recognise the types who never seem satisfied. It must be ... Read more

We picked this cruise for the chance to go to Antarctica and unfortunetly the weather was perfect everyday except that one. so that excursion was cancelled. The Captain was new to this ship and he inherited a mess. We were late for every ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to sail around the horn and prior to this experience, we have cruised Princess on 10 different cruises so we felt we would receive the same standard of service we were used to. Embarkation was ... Read more

We had been looking at a Buenos Aires to Santiago Chile cruise for about five years and decided on this cruise due to Princess' perceived reputation of being more upscale than other lines. We were disappointed at almost every turn. To ... Read more

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 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 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
