Review summary

Because we were caught in a Panamanian bus on Mardi Gras Celebrations and many streets closed with faulty ice cold AC that would not shut off we both became ill with colds...that spoiled our total enjoyment but we did our best to do as much as possible..the cruise was really fabulous in the number of ports and the crew were dedicated and friendly and food was really good..a comfy bed...happy to rest in our cabin at night.
