Loud type of music spoiled the atmosphere for us. It seemed just noise. Most of the crew was pleasant but some were just there. Specialty restaurant service was better than the food. The $18 above the regular added price for dry aged ... Read more

This was a wonderful cruise! The age of fellow cruisers was a bit older than I expected and found that I was in the young crowd at the age of 50. The fellow cruisers were a great mix of people from around the world. So many interesting ... Read more

We chose this cruise to see again the Panama Canal. The on-board commentator, Bill Fall (if I remember his name correctly) was fabulous. His knowledge of every single detail of the canal is awesome! The canal itself is a wonder to ... Read more
