We chose this cruise as it would only mean a one flight to return home. The embarking of the ship was very poor. San Pedro did not have its act together. The ship itself was okay, though we were greeted with Christmas music. Gladly this ended until the cruise was nearly over. The décor of the ship seems to be a bit dated , though our cabin was comfortable. Dinning was good, we did have late fixed dinning and it did seem very understaffed. After a week we opted for the buffet at 9:30 pm and found a great mix of people. It was always filled. Food was good and a great mix, to go along with the many different nationalities on board. Loved the ramen bowls. We did not do any Princess tours, but chose local operators at the ports. We were told not to do this in Callo (Lima) . We did do our own thing, but it does help if one speaks Spanish. . Our friends who took a Princess tour to Santigo were robbed on their tour, so I can't say much for Princess tours. In all it was a good cruise for the price.
