Sail Date: Feb 2023
Cabin: Penthouse Suite

We chose this cruise for the itinerary, food expectations, and service levels. Not sure they lived up to any of it. While they cannot do anything about the weather (cancelling the Falklands) and uprisings (cancelling Pisco), their complete inability to communicate was unacceptable.

Pisco was cancelled before we even boarded, but they told no-one. We only learned about it by the itinerary printed out when we boarded. If we had not be told by some guests, we may not have known.

Because Pisco was cancelled, they decided to add an overnight in Callao(Lima). But no-one on board could confirm whether there would be any excursions. In the early part of the cruise, they could not even confirm if we would be allowed off the ship. The port of Callao, is a huge commercial freighter port. Had to take a shuttle off and there was no terminal area. The place they let us off was very rundown and not somewhere we would want to be left,

Cabin Review

Penthouse Suite

The cabin was very spacious and comfortable. Bathroom was good size with lots of storage. Walk in closet. Desk and sitting area. Balcony all were very good.
