Carribbean/Panama Canal on the Zuiderdam
This was our second time taking this cruise, although the first was several years ago. It was fine, except for minor problems. Meals were not up to Holland America standards, there was only minimal shipboard activity, and spaces were often too small for the number of people on board. On the other hand, the stateroom stewards were excellent, as were the Windows 10 presentations. The excursion through the Pacific locks in the Panama Canal was terrific, with an outstanding tour leader. The B.B. King Blues band was outstanding also, well worth seeing and hearing over and over. Overall, the experience was a bit better than our last time on the Zuiderdam.
