We went thru the Panama Canal on the Miracle and this cruise(on Triumph) we got to stand on the canal and actually watch a ship go thru.  Toured a banana plantation and did a rain forest tour and actually got to pet a sloth.  We did this cruise again as we live in Galveston and did not have to fly to New York to get to the canal.  2 stops in Colombia was a great bonus  Only negative thing was is this was dubbed a retirement home cruise as there were mostly senior citizens on board.  Things on the ship were not happening party wise.  They had a new cruise director on Triumph (we been on Triumph 3 times before and loved the cruise director at that time)and he was a dud.  Phony as a 3 dollar bill...full of IT.  Crew was outstanding otherwise.  The captain of the Triumph is a really cool dude!!!
