Panama Canal Cruise

Loved our experience with Holland America!  We have cruised many times, and this one met all our expectations.  The itinerary, ship, staff, food and entertainment was great.  Due to a schedule change on our end, we boarded the ship in Cartagena instead of Ft. Lauderdale, and departed out of Cabo San Lucas instead of San Diego.  Holland America was so accommodating and great to work with!   Their staff made a potentially difficult situation a great experience.  We will definitely cruise with Holland America again.  Thanks for a wonderful vacation!!
