Selection of ports of call was good. Of course would have suggestions like give more time in Aruba or less time in Colon., but over all nice variety.

Service on the ship was good especially dining area and stateroom. 

Entertainment has some interesting shows especially dancers and some individual performance, but could use a bunch more easy to set up group activities like quick dance lessons with reviews. Such activities draw large groups. On the other hand setting up just dancing in bar brings a few couples with some ballroom dancing experience to show off their "skills" to totally shot down rest of people from even entering the floor.

Over all organization of the cruise was good and I would recommend to others.

Of course we aware of the way cruises operate trying to make you feel like you are on a shopping trip and need to buy, buy and more buy ....

Also know how you want to organize your activities at ports of call. I don't recommend many of organized excursions as they are overpriced comparing to what locals offer.

As expected vast majority of people were retired and many, many either overweight or with disabilities, but that should not matter unless your goal is to meet someone.
