This was our 6th cruise and it was the first time we felt the crowd on a ship. It seems the logistics of having people scattered throughout the ship wasnt there. Breakfast and lunch buffets had long, slow moving lines. This cruise for some reason seemed to attract "not very classy" people.

Ship Quality

Not a good layout. On some of the decks (deck 3 for example) you could not walk from aft (restaurant) to the midship (lobby) without going up 2 decks!

Cabin / Stateroom

Love Cozumel. Friendly people, great food. Be aware though that the snorkel tour goes by boat, but you never get more than 50 yards off shore! You also have to stay with the "guide", you cant explore on your own.

Did the "Eco tour and Gatun Locks" Got an upclose look at ships going through the locks of the Panama Canal. DONT MISS SEEING THIS!! The rest of the tour was a boat trip on the lake. Very nice. Saw monkeys and sloths and all of the flora!
Don't Miss: Panama Canal
