Food and Dining
Dinning time okay. Food poor.
Movies first class.
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Shower stall very small almost claustaphobic.
Service and Staff
Staff excellent. This is what saved the ship and cruise.
Colon, Panama
Tour of canal fascinating. Tour of banana plantation and forest not a don't miss tour.
Puerto Limon, Costa Rica
Tour okay but wouldn't say it was a don't miss.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Best tour swimming with the dolphins. Dunn's river falls disappointing.
Cartagena, Colombia
Tour of old city and fort okay. Wouldn't say it was a don't miss.
Oranjestad, Aruba
Didn't take any tours as time in Aruba too short.
