We are partial to Princess and chose this cruise because it included the Falkland Islands as well as rounding Cape Horn. The highlight was seeing Magellenic, Gentoo and King penguins in Puerto Madryn and on the Falklands. The weather was fabulous around Cape Horn. Amalia Glacier was a disappointment after having seen more spectacular glaciers in Alaska. The tendering was not well organized, especially when we had one unexpected tender stop when we were supposed to dock. We enjoyed the sense of humour of the cruise director, the trivia games, the British pub night, and some of the shows. Art sales and presentations were taking up way too much public space. As to shore excursions, we only took 2 offered by the ship and found a couple other tours at more reasonable prices once we disembarked at other ports. Overall, it was an enjoyable cruise visiting places we would likely not have gone to otherwise.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin BC

Average stateroom. Riviera deck is below lido so often heard scraping of moving chairs and table above. However, not disruptive during night. Norman was great cabin attendant. Shower very small.
