Sail Date: Feb 2019
Cabin: Balcony

Chose the cruise for the itinerary and as an opportunity to begin an adventure in Argentina by cruising to Buenos Aires. Ports were new to us, which was nice. However, disembarkation into some of the ports was disorganized and stressful, taking well over 1 1/2 hours on one occasion. We were recurrently leaving port late, including the night before our disembarkation port, resulting in our arrival 8 hours after we were scheduled. This resulted in our missing our flight. Many others missed flights and excursions. Cost us over $700, which was not reimbursed despite the fact that the reason for the late departure from the previous port was due to bad decisions by Princess.

The food on the ship was very good, with the buffet being surprisingly enjoyable.

The entertainment was better than expected. The lectures were interesting and the port talks good. The cruise director's staff was a highlight.

Balcony

Cabin BW

Cabin was somewhat small but nicely laid out. Balcony small, but definitely adequate with only partially obstructed view.
