Fair, every time I ate off the buffet I got sick. The dining room meals were very nice, but several times the food was served luke warm.

I was happy with the room.

Ship tip

The ship needs maintenance. Lots of rust visible.

Ports of call

Galveston, Texas Did not visit port

We drove to get onto and off of the ship. No need to sight see as we have already been to Galveston several times visiting.

Panama Canal (Cruise Into Canal)

No excursion, just traveling through the canal. Awsome!

Toured the rain forest. A nice tour.

Cozumel, Mexico

Rented a van. A nice excursion, but a lot of money for only 4 hours.

A lot of walking and standing for individuals who had a difficult time doing either.
