Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2012
Cabin:

We are 2 people in their 70's who have done a number of cruises and have just returned from a round the Horn cruise on Star Princess.

We booked a pre cruise option at the Intercontinental in Santiago and a Post cruise option in Rio at the Marriott. Included was transport from Hotel ship in Valparaiso.

Embarkation was uneventful but crowded. The agents suggest we embark after 2pm but their coach got us there at noon.

Cabin Review

Cabin AB

Balcony did not have a roof. We were not told about this on booking. We had no privacy and no shade.
