We went on a Panama Canal cruise, 14 nights from 2/6-2/20/05. DO NOT go on a 14 night cruise unless you are elderly. We are early 40`s and early 50`s and everyone was much older. Had to stop twice to let off sick people, plus others who were sick got off when we stopped in ports. I enjoyed the Panama Canal and Huatulco, MX along with Aruba. Menu in the restaurant was not very good, but they always had steak on the menu. Staff was very good but were having a hard time with everyone thinking that they owned the boat. Most people taking the cruise were downright rude and thought they owned the boat. They pushed and shoved. All the entertainment was geared toward the retired. Most shows were comedians which I do not like. The highlight ? was the Osmonds. Everyone on the ship was asleep by 11 unless there was a buffet then watch out, the line started 30-45 minutes before the buffet. The cruise and ship would have been fine if the average age was not 75 and the entertainment was geared toward them. One comedian was talking about Gabby Hayes---who is that? Before my time. What it boils down to--DO NOT TAKE A 14 NIGHT CRUISE unless you have been retired for at least 10-20 years.
