Verified Review
10 Night Panama Canal Sunfarer (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 13, 2010
Ship: Zuiderdam
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

The ship was somewhat old but well maintained, although kept cooler than was comfortable. The food was excellent and the service of the Indonesian and Filipino crew was outstanding. The entertainment was only fair, but the steel drum band was excellent. The excursion that we took in Costa Rica was rougher than expected, a very bumpy bus ride and no enough sites seen. We in general had a fairly relaxing time.
