Let's start with the positive. The Captain was fabulous, explaining everything about our trip and stopping for things to make sure everyone could see the lighthouse at the horn and the glaciers. There were many activities for all interests. Now let's talk about things that need improving. First, the food, the dinner menus need to be reworked. Some nights everything on the menu was great and then other nights there was nothing. On your always available the salmon and chicken are dry, so that only leaves a hamburger. The buffet at night wasn't much better. We thought the entertainment in the Princess theater was not up to par. The singers and dancers seemed tired and the second group that came on in Chile didn't have any real singers. The first comedian was good the second one was not. The hypnotist was terrible. We still enjoyed the cruise because of the wonderful people we met and the things we saw at each port.
