October 2016 - Nieuw Amsterdam to Panama Canal, Central America
We began our cruise from San Francisco. Since it was "Fleet Week" we had a rare opportunity to see the "Blue Angels" soar through the sky. Another memorable experience was going through the Panama Canal. Prior to going through the canal we attended a lecture relating to the history of all the unbelievable events that took place while building the Panama Canal. We enjoyed snorkeling in Cabo .We enjoyed a our tour in Costa Rica (Tropical Train and Mangrove. The other ports we enjoyed walking and seeing some of the country. There were 8 port days and 8 sea days. We would have liked more port days. However, the ship staff was excellent. We attended most evening shows. Enjoyed dining at three different specialty restaurants. We chose open seating and requested and received tables of 4 or 6 and met and enjoyed meeting some very interesting people.
