January 2014 - Island Princess to Panama Canal, Central America
This cruise was a dream come true - always wanted to see the Panama Canal and now can cross it off my Bucket List. I haven't done much cruising so can't compare. All I know is that everything I read about the ship and the tours that I picked for each port were right on target. The food was great- I made a point to eat in both Sabatini's and Cafe Bayou. I was alone and really appreciated the chef spending some time talking with me. The shows and seminars were entertaining and interesting - I learned a lot about the various ports we stopped at. My steward was attentive and helpful. My table mates at Provence for dinners were interesting and our waiter was charming and thoughtful. I met some very nice people at the bars, the knitting circle, the book club, the pool, and on the tours. I can't think of anything that I was unhappy with. I have a 1-1/2" looseleaf that is filled with pictures and information from the trip. I know that I will be looking through it many, many times. Incorrect info re my accomodations - had a balconey room on Baja deck.
