We chose this cruise because of the Itinerary. With the end point being Brazil, this offered us an opportunity to extend our vacation and see some additional sights (i.e.: Rio De Janeiro, Iguazu Falls. The logistics for getting to the embarkation and disembarkation points can be very expensive. A shuttle trip of 1 1/2-2hrs is needed in Valparaiso Chile and Santos, Brazil. Overall Rhapsody ...

I am Sooo Done with Royal!!! I am a veteran of more than 50 cruises, many (Emerald) with RCI. This cruise from Valpariso (3/27/16) to Sao Paulo was a total disaster. When we arrived at the port in Valpariso we were ushered to the "Priority"line for Emerald /Diamond customers. Ha! We waited for over two hours in line while the incompetent check in people took their sweet time. Where were the ...

Purchased this cruise to go around the Horn and visit Cape Horn, which did not happen. The dining room staff were very slow and inexperience. They seem to have a lack of customer service and a "don't care" attitude. Had to ask our dining room waiters each night to bring the wine I purchased to the table. Lobster was not served any night on this 14 night cruise. Very poor communications from ...

We had chosen this cruise for the itinerary and sights to see, and had planned and looked forward to it for three years, but as we were about to begin our cruise in Valparaiso we were denied entrance to the ship because we had no Brazilian visas ! After the initial shock, we found that there were many others , 30 or more, in the same situation. No help was offered, other than being told we had ...

We did this cruise from Feb 28 to Mar 13 2016. It took us to Puerto Montt, Puntas Arenas, the Chilean Fjords, Ushuaia (the end of the world port, southern most city in the world), then up to Montevideo and Buenos Aires. About 5,000 miles in total. Going down in that area you can't be sure of the weather. We started out with very good weather and had cool days and blue skies going down the ...

First, I'll start with the positives. The ports were amazing, the staff was very friendly, the ship is just the right size to tour the Chilean Fjords. The captain was a very friendly and noticeable person. For the most part, he kept us informed of what was going on, whether it was good, like cruising right alongside of the glacier, or bad, like being stuck in Ushuaia and missing Puerto Madryn. ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 40s

We took a 15 night cruise from Santiago -> Buenos Aires with a family of 5. Pros: 1. Great itinerary even though we weren't able to make a few stops due to inclement weather. Chile has a long coastline and most parts south of Puerto Montt are not accessible to cars, so this cruise was the best way to see this pristine part of Patagonia. 2. Food: Dinner at the main dining were great. ...

The ship is still beautiful, my only negative towards the ship is that they have taken away bar space & other venue space to cater for the totally unnecessary paid Restaurants.(Which we never have & never will use !!!) The embarkation was an absolute debacle & people were lined up in the hot sun for at least 2 hours before they even got close to getting inside the shed, let alone checked in. ...

It is a very nice cruise for the price. We really liked the itinerary. It was a truly international cruise with many cruisers from US, Canada, Europe, Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Mexico. Meeting people from variety of nations was the most enjoyable experience. Obviously, many of us were disappointed as we could not got to Cape Horn and Puerto Madryn due to bad weather. The RCL is promising 15% ...
