10 Night Panama Canal Sunfarer (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 08, 2013
Ship: Zuiderdam
Cabin Type: Suite
Cabin Number: 7088
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
Had a great time. Each couple had a deluxe veranda room, spacious, extremely clean and fresh. Large veranda where we could eat outside if we chose. Room service prompt and food delicious. Stewards were excellent. Even had laundry and concierge services. No language problem. Least liked was Puerto Limon, no excursion but choose to walk into town by ourselves. Mistake. Returned to the ship as we did not feel safe. Panama Canal experience was superb. Highly recommended! Enjoyed Island Magic Steel Drums, they were great! Enjoyed meeting people of all ages on this cruise. Holland America is not a party ship (thank you) but there are plenty of things to do or not. Ready to go again on another cruise! We like the intimacy of the smaller ship and not the mega ships that we have been on before.
