10 Night Panama Canal Sunfarer (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 08, 2016
Ship: Zuiderdam
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8121
Traveled As: Couple

Excellent Itinerary.  Lets you see the canal plus other locations without spending hours of lock transitions. Great food, great crew and staff a nice ship.  Shore excursions in Aruba and Costa Rica were a little lame but still nice.  I think Holland has the best food.  The ship was a little dated but the size was just right.  Debarkation was slow.  Only one immigration agent at first.  More came later.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was very nice. Had problems with toilet, but fixed. Cabin was under rear pool deck where music and parties were held. Could hear music and deck chairs being moved. It did not go on real late. Otherwise it was a great location.

Ship Tip

Don't get a cabin under the pool deck. Otherwise great food.
