Priced right and good dates to Chile which we wanted to experience when previous trip to Chile cancelled. Outstanding service and staff. Expedition/science lectures great. Liked Chris Johnson’s friendly personality and knowledge. Star gazing night was bright experience for us even in darkness. Sharing info on scheduled events somewhat limited. Paperless makes info flow challenging. Would liked to go on orientation tours but was unaware of scheduling. Explorer lounges and Hide great experience.

Loved submarine and outdoor water events. Great dining experiences throughout ship. Especially noteworthy was Mamason cafe. Great staff and crab cakes. Dom in World cafe. Provided special carrot cake with orange frosting last day on cruise.

Special dinners for friends in small dining room was great. Staff took care of us both nights. Anniversary and birthday celebrations 29 March and 3o March. Overall great experience. We will use you again. Maybe to Antarctica. Thanks to crew and staff for great attitudes and friendliness.

Port Reviews

Santiago (Valparaiso)

Wine tour great but ride home in bus was too long and of little value. Got back late (7:00pm) which made dinner tough. Went to 7:30 reservation any way direct from bus. All other experiences were great especially zodiacs, submarine and Castro.
