Review SummaryWe were totally surprised by the excellent dancers and live entertainment. It is clear that they did the very best possible with the resources (music, staging, and costumes). The dancers worked hard (and we didn't even necessarily liked the music). Also, if you select the right shore excursions - we took a canal cruise in Costa Rica and a city tour of Panama City - you will also be delighted. Very, very informed hosts. The only negatives were of the ship itself - tacky and over the top decor. Also, the food looked good but were neither delectable to the palate nor aromatic. So, it filled the stomach without being fulfilling.

Service and Staff
Just wished they had a few less loudspeaker announcements.
Staff, service, and cleanliness were excellent, however.
