What a great way to see several different Central American countries without doing a road trip! My second time through the canal, so that was a long (and wet) day, but like all our Oceania itineraries so far there were some gems (Cartagena, Corinto) and some interesting, glad I saw them but wouldn't necessarily go back ports (Costa Rica). I can't say enough about the warm, helpful Oceania staff beginning with the cruise director (Dottie this time) - they seriously seem like family at the end of the voyage - and the food? Seems to just get better and better each trip: we never eat desserts at home because they simply can't compare to Oceania's, and the beds are heaven at the end of each busy day. We were leery of 5 sea days, but Dottie packed them with activities that sounded too fun to miss - and there's always the wonderful gym too. Overall a fantastic experience, and of course we booked our next cruise while onboard.

Don't bring children, and don't choose this ship for the entertainment. It excels in itineraries, food, staff and those fabulous beds in no particular order, but it's simply not the place for children or late-night partiers. If you're (roughly) 40-75 and well traveled it's perfect.
