The Panama Canal excursion was unfortunate. You're not allowed off the ship unless you take their trip. The price was too high for a bus ride thru a rainforest. The food promised turned out to be one muffin. Worst of all, it took forever to let passengers back on the boat.

The Health club was adequately equipped, but completely unattended (staff were in another room, conducting classes). They also need to provide charts to keep track of exercises.

Pros: Food, entertainment

Cons: Health club, ship-sponsored excursions
