Magellanic Plover  Experts say may be or may not be a plover but a ?.

Wanted to go on this cruise to see this area. Sea birds, land birds, cities, glaciers and experience Cape Horn. We had another "tour" scheduled with it by a birding company that provided guided excursions at all the ports. That made it a 5 thumbs up experience for us! the low ratings for things below mean that we did not use so could not rate (not used). We did the first half of this cruise not the full 30 nights.

We use Princess for about half of our cruises. On this ship had the International Cafe for specialty coffees. If you do not have a beverage perk get a coffee card for a small discount on 15 coffees as the regular coffee is poor. Vines is a wine and tapas and sushi cafe. Great at 4 or 5 pm before dinner. Ship in pretty good shape. Buffet can be crowed if you don't go early and look for seats more aft when crowed.

Did not due Princess excursions, go to the casino, theater or enrichment activities as we did things we wanted to do. We were up early, active and to bed early. Ate in a maining dinning room whenever available/open and did "any time". That worked out well fro a shared or table for 2 if we did not want to talk to others or had shared when we did. Food was excellent to very good and if you had a bad meal it would have been a poor choice or failur to ask for something else as a replacement. Great ports and we did get into Stanley Island, Falkland Islands, to see the penguins.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin BA

Sorta small cabinbut good value. No small sofa but an arm chair instead. The balcony was little used due to the colder and wndy weather but could sit in bed or the chair and have a full sliding glass window on the sea.
