We chose this cruise because it originated in Chile and arrived in Los Angeles. The 16 day itinerary allowed us to arrive early in Santiago and enjoy Chile and the hospitality of the city and it's people. Princess transportation to the cruise port at San Antonio was very good although the cruise port facility was modest at best with lack of direction for arriving guests but we embarked comfortably. Although the ports included several that required transportation to local destinations we did get to enjoy Chile, Peru, Costa Rica, (where we took a great Princess tour and zip-lined), Nicaragua and Mexico. We did feel that the information about the port cities and what travelers could do on their own was lacking.The time on the ship was casual, comfortable and relaxing and the crew from the Captain down were friendly and accommodating. This cruise appealed to an older crowd and had only a dozen or so children on board. The entertainment was good but not spectacular although the one major production number by the song and dance entertainers was outstanding. There probably should have been more than one major stage production presented on this long of a cruise. The dance band "Static" was outstanding and was the best band we have heard and danced to on any of our cruises. The food was good but only outstanding in the specialty restaurant. Disembarkation and Princess transportation to LAX was very easy and well organized.

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BA B733
This verandah cabin was good for the category level and the aft location was excellent for access to the rear pool area, the buffet, and an easy walk to the atrium, (Piazza). The room was large enough for two with outstanding closet and drawer space. Princess bedding is good and the bed was very comfortable. Baja deck has cabins above and below and was very quiet.
