Fantastic! Fantastic! Fantastic!

Sail Date: October 2013
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

We're just getting home - this was our first 15 day cruise - and we loved it and were not ready to get off the ship!! Everything was spotless clean - we had the best room steward - although I was quite disappointed in the service in the dining room. Most nights it took us 2-1/2 hours for our meal - which is way too long to sit at a table when you had other great things going on!! The shows were top notch and all crew (shops included)very friendly & helpful.

Our favorite excursion - by far - was in Fuerte Amador (Panama) - to see the Embera Indian Village via hand dug canoes!! What a surpise! The bus ride thru the forest to the river was gorgeous - & the 1-1/2 hours on the river to the village unbelievably beauitful! These people are awesome & amazing to be living as they do in this time & not to mention how talented they are! We are served FRESH tiliapi & fried plantin & it was great as well. The best tour we did!! In Costa Rica we did the river More rafting - it was ok but a little bit too easy! Chiapas was neat & the ruins & the chocolate were very interesting! The Canal (the main reason we did this!) - unbelievable!! Get up early & get a good spot on the railing!!

All in all - great ship & great iteneary! Would recommend it to anyone! Less
