Sail Date: Feb 2018
Cabin: Balcony

The itinerary was great, but the ship not so much. Food menu has drastically gone down hill. On several nights, there was nothing appealing and steak is no longer on the every day menu. The entertainment was sub par but the entertainment staff were phenomenal. The ship needs some refurbishment in public areas. Some chairs were worn need to be replaced The beds were very comfortable. The princess tours were poor and outrageously expensive. We did mostly private tours and less than half the price of the equivalent Princess tours. The captain was by far the most informative and friendly captain we have ever sailed with. He was professional with a great sense of humor and really cared about the crew and passengers.

Cape horn was wonderful and we were blessed with great weather. The inside passage around Chile and getting up close and personal to the glaciers was gorgeous. I highly recommend this itinerary.
