Sail Date: Feb 2019
Cabin: Deluxe Balcony

The breadth of ports was very attractive, from Fort Lauderdale to Los Angeles, the long way. It enabled visiting places that one might not see otherwise. Prices for cabins with an "obstructed view" were excellent & the view was still quite good. Dining & entertainment were terrific! Condition of cabin was very fine.

A couple of excursions were horrible and many very over-priced.

Sailing around the tip of S. America was lovely and very interesting.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Balcony

Cabin DW

Very nice. The view was not very obstructed, but saved a lot of $$.

Steward, Eugene, was excellent.

Port Reviews

Buenos Aires

Our visit was very limited due to Princess ship arriving about 9 hours late. People should be fired for their incompetence. They failed to complete the most basic of duties, that is, assure that all passengers have valid travel documents. The staff of the Royal Princess did not do that & resulted in about 2,000 passengers waiting for hours, missing flights home and more.

Stanley

The Falklands are really worth visiting. Tiny population. Harsh, natural conditions, but pretty cool and nice pubs too. Very British!

Punta Arenas

Better than expected. We walked around & enjoyed it.

Puerto Montt

Decent

St. Thomas

walked on the beaches on a drizzily day. Still fun.

Antigua

Great weather.

Ushuaia (Tierra del Fuego)

The southern most city in the world. Worth visiting. National Park was worth the effort.
