This 14 day cruise started in Valparaiso and ended in Buenos Aires. We stayed in cabin 8139 which had a veranda, which was well worth the extra money. Views from both sides of the ship were great, I assumed the port side would be best sailing in this direction, but there was no preference. Great scenery. The food was great, you can even eat healthy if you want, we didn't gain any weight, but we did use the stairs all the time and worked out every day in their great health club.
The shore excursions that featured penguins were amazing. Bring warm clothes and a good rain coat and even a little plastic poncho for unexpected rains, forget umbrellas, its too windy. I rented a tux, which worked great, less stuff to pack. Service was wonderful, we tipped higher than the standard amounts. The shows were very good. Days at seas had plenty of activities to keep you busy. We'll take Infinity again.
