This cruise absolutely had the most wonderful entertainment that we have experienced on any of our cruises. The variety was great and everyone we talked to said that the entertainment was awesome. We had excellent service but weren't impressed by the layout of the vessel. We had a few sleepless nights due to the worn out mattresses.

A great learning experience! Visited a farm where coffee, bananas, pineapples and cocoa beans were grown.
Don't Miss: Don't miss the banana plantation, the crocodiles and the howler monkeys.

Be sure to check out the shops at the dungeons.

We were only allowed to go into the building at the port due to unsafe conditions. This was not a problem since we were only docked there for 3 hours.

The shops were overpriced & the people were not really friendly.

Pros: The entertainment was awesome!

Cons: Bad matresses
