Restful cruise

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

had a wonderful time visiting cruise ports and especially enjoyed the Panama Canal crossing. Not to be missed. The ships was spotless, food great, and service impeccable. Excursions were seamless, however the Nicaragua port was missed because of unsafe conditions for tenders. That was the only disappointing event.

Choose anytime dining and sit with different people. The cruise is about destinations but also about learning about other people countries and customs.
