Stage shows were excellent. Two performances are not enough for all the guests who want to see the shows however.

Another check on my bucket list! Fantastic commentary from historian on board!

Colon, Panama

Although the tour guide had a great personality, it did not make up for the disappointment of a mundane train ride through the forest. I also could not understand the guide’s comments due to her accent. For the money, a disappointment!

Puerto Limon, Costa Rica

Zip lining in Costa Rico! WOW! Fabulous attendants on the lines and platforms. And stars for the bus driver and tour guide!
