14 Night Panama Canal Sunfarer Holiday (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 19, 2006
Ship: Amsterdam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 11 years ago

It was impressive that you could clean your hands at all times. Except for one show, the jugglers, the shows were all 1st class. Shore excursions had busses that were too crowded. Also one one excursion a 95 yr old man had to be helped by Ed to and from the glass bottom boat. The tour guides not only should have helped on the dock but should not have allowed him to go on this trip.

There was an exceptional young man in the Lido Cafe that remembered everyones name plus was very friendly. We called him Superman. All others were wonderful. Did not find one negative person.

Cabin / Stateroom

The bus trip to Panama City was the worst trip I have ever been on. Guide was poor plus when youstate the historical site let us know it means the slums.
