Sail Date: Nov 2017

We chose this cruise specifically for the itinerary and what a wonderful itinerary it was helped by settled weather conditions for most of the passage. I had however reservations about the ship being a little dated and reserved ie the entertainment onboard was quite possibly the poorest we had ever been unfortunate enough to be subjected to.

There was also unacceptable delays in the main dining room which ultimately led us to dine in the lido.

Embarkation was poor with elderly guests having to queue for long periods of time, although this can't be helped perhaps cool hand/face towels and iced water?

Port Reviews

Punta del Este

Beautiful port no need to venture to far everything walking distance including sea lions and seals

Punta Arenas

Catholic country on a Sunday .... Every where closed apart from the museum which was actually very good.
