Review summary

We had sailed to Alaska on the Coral Princess so we were already familiar with the ship.  It is a smaller, very pretty ship.  One problem we encountered was that because it was "off season" the adult pool area was not for adults only.  Although there was only one family with children on the ship (5 of them) they monopolize the adult pool and hot tubs.  It took away from our retreat and was quite disappointing.

We also learned, too late, that if my husband had a long sleeve shirt and long pants to formal night we could have been seated in the dining room. On the Alaska cruise we had been told he just needed a collared shirt so we were not prepared this time and missed out on two very nice meals.  Small things, but I would have appreciated knowing ahead of time.


The Panama Canal was interesting as was Aruba. We enjoyed the banana plantation in Limon.  Cartegna is an interesting city to visit.  We were told not to go into Colon as it is not a safe city for Americans.
