Strait of Magellan & Cape Horn

Valparaiso to Buenos Aires, 15th - 29th February 2016

Some of the reviews on this & the return cruise were quite critical but we thought the whole experience - the ship, the staff, the itinerary were all excellent.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin BC

No problems, great steward (Virginia), good location.

Port Reviews

Santiago (Valparaiso)

Airport was chaotic, long queue at immigration, huge numbers bunched together in arrivals hall, difficult to see and hear the Princess reps.

Puerto Montt

Lovely Chilean countryside, nice lake ride, interesting waterfalls, excellent salmon lunch.

Ushuaia (Tierra del Fuego)

Fascinating old train, friendly staff, lovely countryside

Ushuaia (Tierra del Fuego)

Excellent catamaran cruise, many bird & sealion colonies, and a big whale! Great.

Stanley

Just a short coach tour around the town & environs. Being British we found this fascinating. Informative guide.

Stanley

Got off tender at jetty, straight into Tourist Info, got a private tour immediately for 40 dollars. Lovely retired chap took us to the cove at waited as long as we wanted. Saw the penguins and the dolphins in the bay. Then took us all round the town and surrounding areas.

In view of this, the Princess tour in the afternoon was unnecessary really as it went to the same places except the cove.

Stanley is a lovely little town but in a bleak landscape, glad it wasn't winter.

Montevideo

What a beautiful place this is. Miles and miles of lovely promenade and beaches.

Modern buildings not very high-rise. Apparently high standard of living.

Soccer stadium a bit run down to be honest but museum interesting.

We want to go back to Uruguay!
