Sail Date: Jan 2024

This was our 6th cruise. Unfortunately ranks at the bottom. If you've cruised within the US or Europe, this will be a disappointment.

Embarkation. Like a disorganized maze. Luggage drop off is different location from your checking in. Buses will ferry pax from these 2 locations. Address sent by Norwegian Star erroneous....meant for locals only.

Itineraries. Antarctica (Paradise Bay, Elephant Island) cruise-by were the only good itineraries. Puerto Madryn was poor. Just Penguin tours and nothing else. Distant and bumpy roads to see your penguin. Puerto Arenas was a tendering port. Be prepared for long waits. 3 hours to get out of ship, 2 hours to get back. Do the math on how much time you have ashore

Port Reviews

Buenos Aires

Metro city. Generally nice areas. Some shady places outside of tourist zones. Avoid taxis if possible....crooked. Uber it by getting a SIM card. We used taxi 1 time as the return port (port authority rule)was taxi only allowed so prepare to get scammed.
