January 2016 - Veendam to Panama Canal, Central America
the canal was fascinating. The crew on the Veendam were wonderful and took care to make sure all the passengers were well taken care of. The ship is old and had a lot of "cricks". The TV was very small and useless...I never knew what was on & when. The movies they showed were okay; nothing special. The shower in our room was difficult to adjust. We joined the spa, but since this was an old ship, the amenities were not up to snuff. It lacked a dressing room and I was unable to do my hair, etc. the stops we made were short, so it was difficult to get to know anything in the areas we stopped at. Overall, the trip was pleasant,; my goal was to cross the Panama Canal, so I did.
