A new Experience with the Panama Canal

Sail Date: September 17, 2016

Reviewed: 8 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

The cruise was a little too long for us although the tours were good - especially the volcano in Nicaragua and the Panama Canal. The food selection was repetitious in the traditional dining. Most of the outside entertainers were good except for one of the comedians. Princess singer and dancer's shows are repetitious. We renewed our vows while on ship and the package they offer is well worth it!
