We wanted to go to go to the Rio Carnival, which this cruise was focussed around, and also the Iguazu Falls which we were able to add on as an extra at the end of the cruise. These two locations did not disappoint. We should point out however that the Ships Excursion to the Carnival (particularly for a box seat) is extremely expensive and so we booked wth the Carnival organisers directly over the internet, collecting the tickets on arrival in Rio, all of which proved quite easy to do and saved a significant sum of money. We were also surprised by how nice Buenos Aries was, to us it had a very European feel. The two island excursions, Ilhabela and Buzios were only OK and served just to "pad out" the cruise. Montevideo and Punta del Este were good excursions. The tour excursion in Rio was very good however, covering all the main spots such as Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf etc. and the guide here was very informative. Dining in the main restaurant was excellent and service there was very good. The Sommelier looked after us very well and the quality of the wine was very good. The ship lacked some sun deck areas with shade and we were on occasions concerned at the soot coming from the funnel when we were in the cinema area at the aft of the ship.

Cabin Review

Ocean View 6
Cabin 06 6000
Despite being a slightly larger cabin we were not happy with our choice. The principal reason being the smell of cigarette smoke particularly late at night. We found out towards the end of the cruise that the reason for this was that we were located directly above the crew's smoking room. This was particularly noticeable in the early hours when we would wake up to the strong smell of cigarette smoke. We believe this was because on occasions the crew would leave the door to their smoking room open!
