Overall, a good cruise.  Particularly pleased with the limited no smoking policy.  Land excursions in ports of call were good. Although Cartagena was way too crowded and hard to enjoy.  Ziplining in Costa Rico with the Original Canopy Tour and guides was so much fun!  Especially enjoyed the ships staff, ie.  LaPatisserie Bar crew, room steward and Horizon Court Diningroom.  Burger, pizza and ice cream bars were a nice touch.   A little disappointed that lobster/steak was only served on "formal" nights.  Hand santitizer as you enter buffet dining is great idea. Entertainment was good but especially excellent were the classical group Rhapsody and island sounds band Opus.  Cuisine was good to excellent.  Nightly "movies under the stars" was a fun way to watch a movie and have popcorn.  Good cabin size and storage but shower was a bit confining.

Get to the gym, especially early, on sea days to beat the crowd.
