We just returned from a 31 day cruise to South America. It certainly was below average for Princess. Shore excursions were horrible and the fact that the shore ex. department lie made everything worse. We has a pre paid visit to a ... Read more

This was our third Princess cruise. Overall not up to par with previous Princess or other cruise line cruises, but we are not sorry that we took this cruise. Exceeding our expectations, the food and service in the dining rooms was the ... Read more

Having cruised many times with princess we had the normal expectations of our previous cruises. What a shock we were in for.....first main meal on board was to say the least a disaster. Arrived at the dining room at 8.30pm, at 9.45pm we ... Read more

We are Elite cruisers with Princess and have chosen their ships for our last five or six cruises. We chose this cruise because of its itinerary--from Buenos Aires, around the Horn to Los Angeles with a side trip to Machu Picchu. First, ... Read more

I agree with much of what smajy said in his review. But I would add a few more comments. Our biggest disappointment was the lack of intellectual content to the "Enrichment Lectures." South America has a rich culture and history. We had ... Read more

It is clear to me that Argentina does not welcome tourists, particularly Americans. I have never seen so many security lines--it took four hours from arriving in BA to the ship. And Americans have to pay a $160 reciprocity fee to get into ... Read more

I just got back from this tour and found the following: Automatic doors on public washrooms were rare. The balcony was useless to me in a wheelchair although my wife enjoyed it. Had I known about the useless balconies I could have saved ... Read more

We boarded the Star Princess after the worst embarkation we have ever experienced. We arrived at the time recommended and stood in line for three hours. This seemed to be more the fault of the port organization, because three ships were ... Read more

Our Star Princess cruise started off with 2 nights in Buenos Aires on our own. We had no real problems there but it was HOT 95 degrees F. Boarding the Star was a big problem for a lot of people. We were told by Princess not to even go to ... Read more
