11 Night Panama Canal Sunfarer (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 17, 2014
Ship: Zuiderdam
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 7126
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

This was the worst cruise I have ever taken.  The activities were not very exciting, the food selection was poor (mash potatoes- almost every night) the choices were limited, which forced you to go to their private dining for a better meal. The activities were also very boring and limited.  I have been on many cruises before but this is my first cruise on Holland America and my last.

Seeing the Panama Canal was interesting.
