This was a nice itinerary for bottom of South America.

We saw this trip and figured it would round out what we wanted to see in South American. There was some concern as the messages on CC said there was a possible problem with the ship's engines on the previous voyage ...

Poor ship, dangerous medical arrangements

Wanted to see South America for the first time. The ship's décor is dated and tired especially the ocean view café, cabins and the lounges. The guest relations staff are mediocre and mostly not good at dealing ...

Great cruise - even with the impact of the Coronavirus

The biggest take-away from this cruise is to say that if you do take medications, take an extra seven days worth with you. We were lucky and did, which we have done on previous cruises. You never know what may ...

NCL Cost Cutting At All Time High

Our last NCL cruise has shown how they are cutting so much that there is just not much value left in cruising with NCL. The beverage package that most all passengers get for "Free" is not worth the price, we had ...

CRUISE TO THE END OF THE WORLD

The ship was excellent, the cruise, not so much. The Viking ocean going ships are well designed and easy to navigate around. The amenities are nice, but don't expect a lot of flash. The 900 passenger ships rarely ...
