Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The food in all dining rooms was very good. We just prefer highly seasoned dishes so these seemed relatively bland. However they were far above average for restaurants. I especially liked the smaller portions and more courses.

We took an excursion here and found that this very poor area is not as interesting as we had hoped.

Fuerte Amador, Panama

We took the old city and new excursion and were very impressed. I highly recommend this tour for first time visitors.

This was the first port where we had excellent tour guides and learned so much about the early Peruvians and their history.
