Dining room and cabin staff were wonderful!

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Dining room, cabins,, theaters, and lounges were very comfortable and up to date, but outdoor pool area needs some sprucing up.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Quiet, clean, well organized, and very comfortable cabin (away from the elevators, and with no noise from above or below). As I sleep better without light in the room, this was a perfect choice of cabin!

Ship Tip

If you have any dietary requirements, needs, or desires, just tell the dining room stewards, and they will be very happy to arrange for what you'd like! They made dining a happy and pleasurable experience for all!

If you are experienced as a snorkeler, be sure to ask if your snorkel excursion will go to the best sites (or they'll just take you to a beach where they take beginners.

Cruise Gatun Lake (Inside Panama Canal) Did not visit port

We didn't "cruise Gatun Lake", but chose the Embera Native Village Excursion. It was the best choice we could have made!!

Puerto Limon, Costa Rica Did not visit port

We loved our white water rafting excursion!!!!
Snorkeling...and walking on a long beach with beautiful soft (like flour) beach! Next time, I'll also take the horseback riding excursion on the beach (and in the water)!
