14 Night Panama Canal Westbound (Ft. Lauderdale To Los Angeles)
Sail Date: January 20, 2007
Ship: Celebrity Summit
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 11 years ago

All personnel on the ship showed attention to detail, cleanliness was everyones job. The crew assumed different duties each day and performed their jobs with a friendly professional attitude. Room service was prompt, there was never any pressure to purchase anything.

There was plenty of excurisons offered, however in Cabo San Lucas we sighned on for the $46. Beach trip. This was a 7 minute bus ride to a public beach where we were accosted by the peddlers even behind the "beach club" ropes. We were also pestered about time shares. For the price we were supposed to receive two drinks and salsa and chips and lunch. Some of the people got lunch, We had to argue to receive the two beers etc and received no lunch. The ship excursion desk kindly refunded 50% or $23. to each person in our group. This was acceptable.

Food and Dining

Dinner meals were good, plenty of choice, we had six epole in our party we all came to the conclusion some meals were great and others were only good. The maitre d and our wait staff did everything to accommodate our needs. They were excellent.

The exercise room needs 3lb and 5lb weights for women and the weight room was a little to small to accommodate all the people at the same time.

We were here in the evening and the people in the duty free shops were nice, we didnt see the town.

The town is lovely and we had more fun once we got back to town and walked around. It was colder here and some other people couldnt swim because of the cold air. this is a must see port, but not the tour we took.

We took the bus tour to visit a coffee plantation. Zelma the tour director on our bus was a former exchange student. She was knowledgeable, pro American, and a fabulous PR person for costa Rica. We enjoyed the whole experience, the lunch on the tour was excellent and we left this port wanting to come back.

Much to see, enjoyed the rock divers and little show, Could have missed this tour and done it ourselves without so much time visiting the shops.

We took a taxi ride on this site as the island is small and I was here many years ago and besides the natural bridge there is not much to see.

Pros: The friendly attentive staff, daily Catholic Mass,

Cons: Passing through the smoke in the casino on the way to dinner from the show, I found this most offensive as i have allergies that were triggered every night. Some of the excurisions we took were not worth the price. We would have been better off taking a taxi sight seeing in Acupulco and Cabo San L
