Panama Canal collectors cruise
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: San Diego
We took the train to San Diego and walked two blocks to the cruise terminal. HA has sent an. Email notifying us of the delayed embarkation. HA had a shuttle to Seaport Village to give those interested something to do while waiting. Also HA provided beverages and lite snacks (sandwiches & cookies).
The ship was under code red for the first 12 days, which I didn't mind since it was for the health and safety of the passengers.
The crew were exceptional - providing wonderful opportunities for enjoyment and entertainment. DJ Maek with his line dancing lessons, name that tune, and bingo; Lifesttylisr Jay with his endless choices of exercise: aqua aerobics, sit and be fit, deck walk, and tai chi; Jillian with her party planner activities: crafts, cooking demos, food trivia and stage competitions; Librarian David provided excellent quizzes in the AM and book club; Techspert Krista was an awesome teacher. The captain was informative and had a nice sense of More humor.
Entertainers were really good: Glen the gituarist was the best we have ever had on HA.
As always the room Stewart's and dining staff were friendly and efficient.
Excursions were excellent. Panama Canal commentary very much appreciated. Didn't appreciate the over abundance of street vendors in Cartagena, Columbia. Less
