Review summary

My husband & I just came back from the 10 night Panama Canal Cruise. We had a wonderful time, except when we went through the Canal it took a long time. Then the ship spend just about the whole day in the water, before the dock. buy the time they dock it was 8 PM, most of the the stores were close. All those hrs it spend in the water it could dock so the passengers who choose not to go on a tour can get off. Also their is a television in the room, but u cannot find a good movie to watch. They run the same love boat all day. Change it up some. I am a big love boat fan but I was tired of seeing the same one over and over. Channel 43 suppose to b the move channel. That count down of the best & worst is a waste of time. We just want to stay in our room and watch a movie, nothing else.

Food and Dining

The food was excellent. My husband & I had dinner the first 2 nigh in the formal dinning room. (Husband didn't want to put on another long pants) the other 8 we ate in the Horizon Court Buffet. Reason is we had many choices. don't matter what your likeness is. u will find it there.

Mr. Jerry MC Gerry. kept our room spotless. Clean room, clean towels, clean bathroom. Our bed was comfortable. normally sometimes when we go on vacation I would tell my husband half through, that my back hurt. Not this time.
