Learninag we arae not cruise people

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The experience was mixed. The food was not uniformly good as some meals were excellent and some very poor.  Fopr example, the veal was disgusting and the Beef Wellington was one of the best meals I ever had.

Entertainment by the crew was superb but the ports were just another way of taking money from tourists who were anxious to overpay for unnecessary items.

We did not like the crowds and found the land tours advertising to be confusing.

Most people to whom we talked liked the cruise experience but we are just not cruise peole.

Food and Dining from great to disgusting
Cabin / Stateroom fine
Service and Staff
Children's Programs no children with us
Onboard Activities from good to bery poor. Too much salesmanship.
Destinations and Excursions These were mostly tourist places and not real countries - except for Costa Ricaa
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida ugly
Oranjestad, Aruba "real people" don't live here
Cartagena, Colombia No one gave us much real history of this wold monument.
Panama Canal (Cruise Into Canal) very interesting
Colon, Panama too late to get a tour
Puerto Limon, Costa Rica meidocre
George Town, Grand Cayman not a real country - not inhabited until 1924


Stay away if you don't like crowds and aren't interested in shopping
