Review summary

Longest cruise I have taken so far. Worth it. With the exception of Puerto Limón in Costa Rica all the other stops were beautiful and interesting. Four sea days provided a balance to rest while visiting so many the ports. Mixed feelings about ship as sometimes felt crowded (was not 100% sold). Otherwise, we'll kept and staff was great!
