On the final day, we disembarked the ship with an excursion to the Tigre Delta. I was apprehensive about booking with Princess, but this turned out to be the occasion that we were pleasantly surprised - a stop at San Isidro Cathedral was all too brief, but the river cruise and cooperative weather sustained us (along with the small coffee and alfajor provided). The cruise loop is quite lovely along some of the main channels of the delta; do note that for the most part it does not retrace its path. Both sides are scenic, and the guide suggested the left - I came to think that the right-hand side was possibly more interesting (especially as that was the side that the Sarmiento Museum appeared on as we cruised by). Viewing was done from a covered, single-level passenger space but with mostly enough room for most passengers to be comfortably seated along the open viewing windows. Read Less

Buenos Aires has 48 neighborhoods. We drove along Liberator Avenue for 21 km into the San Isidro to visit one of its cathedral (St Isidore is the patron saint of farmers and Madrid). The magnificent stone structure was completed in 1896 compared to the adobe hut of 1706 founded by Spanish captain Domingo de Acassuso. In the same plaza there is a statue of Bartolome Mitre who is credited with unifying Argentina. Our last stop was in Tigre. It is the starting point for the Parana Delta. So we boarded a passenger boat and traveled its many interlocking rivers. We first went by rowing clubs and marinas. It reminded of a Louisiana swamp but the houses and mansions are closer. Each house usually has a pier. The houses are on stilts to prevent rising water damage. Children attend school from 10 - 2. Groceries come by boat. Landowners usually put out a flag for grocery boat to stop. Most houses have propane. A significant landowner made a "crystal house" which is encased in glass and is now a museum. Read Less

Stopped at cathedral before doing the fascinating boat tour. Made a brief stop at the former fruit market, which has been burned into a series of shops with lots of local crafts. Very enjoyable!

On this tour of the delta we were led to believe we would see birds, wildlife and take a leisurely boat ride along a delta. Our first stop was at a run down farmers market. Only a few stalls on broken and side-hill sidewalks. On the plus side, there were some very nice and unique products (about 5 stalls) that were worth stopping to take a look. The next part of the tour had us boarding a "hop on hop off" type of bus. The tour guide who was with us did nothing and looked and acted bored and disinterested. Our lunch was at a nice stop, but again the tour guide showed no interest in the group or in sharing anything about her city. She took us (again on the dreadful bus which had a commentary in at least three languages - none of them audible) to the "fruit market" which was truly dreadful. It was a huge area filled with "dollar store" type items - no booths of unique or handmade goods. The last part of the tour was a boat ride in the delta. The boat went along the delta showing house after rundown house; derelict ships either tied up along abandoned docks or resting on the river bottom; and the Brie life consisted of a few cormorants. I've been on many shore excursions and tours - this was the absolute worse! Read Less
