The Panama Canal cruise was a wonderful trip with history, engineering, beauty, culture & relaxing entertainment. My favorite part, other than new exciting ports, was that evening entertainment in the lounges started early enough in the evening with adequate seating & great music for me & my husband to enjoy. Service/cleanliness/friendliness of staff were the best! Our inner room was a little small, but we only slept there so didn't care. Five freestyle dining allowed us variety of places and times for meals with never a crowd. We plan to book another NCL trip on a smaller ship again soon. We really enjoyed the poolside buffet/grills to enjoy the nice weather.
