We do not have any children with us, but the staff kept the 950 on board very busy and happy and out of the way.

We did not leave the port shopping area. I heard the snorkling was fun and the other trips were good. 4 years ago we had visited the Mayan ruins from this port on another cruise and found that very interesting.

The Panama Canal is interesting. We saw a ship going through it. Portobello is dirty.

We have been on the west coast of Costa Rica and it is much cleaner and prettier.

Pros: The ship
