The outside of this ship is well designed. Not so the inside. First the good stuff. If you like to walk a ship's promenade deck, this one is very nice. It's wide and goes all the way around the ship if you climb a few stairs, giving you great 360 views of the sea and sky. You can do the same on deck 16, also with a few stairs. The inside is different story. The design is flawed, mainly ...

We chose this cruise because we had been wanting to cruise through South America and this ship offered us the best deal and visited all the places that we wanted to see. This was our first time on Princess. We arrived in Buenos Aires 2 days prior to our cruise. We stayed at the Novotel Hotel. It was very nice, centrally located, reasonably priced and the service was excellent. We had ...

Wanted to go on this cruise to see this area. Sea birds, land birds, cities, glaciers and experience Cape Horn. We had another "tour" scheduled with it by a birding company that provided guided excursions at all the ports. That made it a 5 thumbs up experience for us! the low ratings for things below mean that we did not use so could not rate (not used). We did the first half of this cruise ...

Last thing on our bucket list after travelling for 49 years.. First time to do Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Peru and Nicaragua. Unfortunately on this cruise we had too many things on board that we have become accustomed to on our previous 30 day cruises that have now been removed or declined in quality. I certainly hope that Princess will read and react to my post cruise survey, where I ...

We chose this cruise as it began the day I retired, and it was a 30 day South America cruise on the Emerald Princess.It included the opportunity to take an excursion to Machu Picchu (two nights off the ship). We embarked in Buenos Aires after a redeye flight. It was a painful 5 hours from airport to ship, but largely not Princess's fault. Immigration was a long slow wait, followed by a ...

We wanted to go to South America and Princess provided the best value for us. We took the opportunity to go to Iguazu Falls and Colonia del Sacramento from Buenos Aires before the cruise as well as exploring Buenos Aires itself. Iguazu Falls are spectacular, but not an inexpensive side trip. Colonia was interesting and pleasant via Buquebus, but probably more expensive than it was worth. For us, a ...

Great Visit to this New Part of the World

This was pretty much a bucket list trip for us. We are frequent cruisers but had not been to this part of the world before. We thought that the itinerary that Princess had put together was terrific for a first time visit and it proved to be so. We visited Buenos Aires for 4 days beforehand on people's advice and it proved to be very worthwhile. We walked and walked and walked the city, saw ...

The places the ship will be visiting is the place we are interested to see. The price of the cruise is reasonable taking into account it was a 30 day cruise and Los Angeles is the disembarkation area where we reside 45 miles away. The only problem on the day Princess picked for disembarkation was not very well thought of, it was Good Friday. Most people in the Port of Entry took the day off, so ...

Very good 30 day cruise in South America!

We spent a few days in Buenos Aires prior to embarkation. The city was worth a visit and we felt safe in the Recoleta area where our hotel was located. The weather was warm and sunny. On embarkation day, we received our room cards and surrendered our passports. The lineups at the terminal moved quickly, and we found our stateroom right away. Our luggage was delivered to our room mid ...

Our cruise took us, back-to-back, from Buenos Aires to Santiago and then on to Los Angeles. We visited lot of amazing places. About half of the passengers did the entire 30 days. From Buenos Aires to Santiago, all public announcements were made in both English and Spanish resulting in the longest muster drill in the history of cruising. Yes, we carried our life jackets. First of all, ...
