Review summary

passengers are mostly seniors. cafeteria was not busy most of the time. dinner took somewhat long. Lido restaurant was good( tried 2 times), good crews, poor entertainment (we seen the same BBC film four times), talks on Mexico was excellent, however panama canal talk was not good, should be there more lectures besides videos. we tipped more than $100 to crews, seems they expect it, good or bad???
