I loved the ports and the distribution of days at sea vs. days in port. I would definately do this type of cruise again. 8 days with 3 ports. The stops were excellent as well. The white water rafting in Costa Rica was spectacular. The ship was nice but a little small for this many sea days. The pools were a disapointment due to the sizes. There were 3 pools but they were all too small to be considered pools. Everyone except the casion staff were friendly and knowlegable. I will pay more attention to the ship ammenities for our next cruise.

Golf excursion. The course was fun but not in great shape. It would have been nice to play a course with a view of the canal.
