my trip start out great! I was looking forward to a balcony room for a 10 day trip to the panama canal. The first day the ship was really rocking motion pill time. checked out ship came back people fixing the leak in my hall for 6-7 days with buckets, tiles, drills hammers all over in front of my room. Shut the water off for one day from 9-12. They were there with ceiling tiles out and men every where in the hall constantly. When that was done they started cutting the carpet up and putting down new carpet! Now how is that for putting up with crap on your vacation!!!. It was a pain coming out of our room every day with them standing their daily.  The staff in the provence dining room was awesome. we had a great time at every evening evening meal. also our waiters at the wheel house for bogo drinks were fantastic. The ship was always rocking i was taking motion sickness meds three times a day for almost the whole trip and the water was not that rough. I have been on other cruises so this was not my first ride,  Besides the rocky ship the beaches were great, nice and blue the weather was beautiful every stop was great. I thought panama canal  was long. It was 7.5 hours and it took up the whole day of nothing to do but sit on the boat and watch the canal.  Nice trip!

We left a tip for Leo, I was suprize that we did not get any towel animals. I have been on other cruises where they made one every night. Maybe you don't this or not but people do like to see this. They are cute and funny, Maybe you should have a class and show them how to make them, We bearly saw our person. we how ever see the men in front of our door everyday. They were there for a week fixing the leak with buckets, drills, hammers, the ceilling tore apart and cords going all over the place in front of our room. But did anybody, ever bother to ask if we were fine with that or give us a discount on anything!!!
