Overall Member Rating
Through the Panama Canal on the Quest
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
The group of singers and dancers were very good, the magician was terrific, the ventriloquist was OK (as was the violinist) and the stand-up comedian was terrible! We thoroughly enjoyed Dr. Frank Peel's lectures and wished there were more of that type of activity offered. The activities staff did all they could to make things exciting. I was particularly impressed with the fact that they provided Hanukkah celebrations for the Jewish passengers during the holiday nights - that was very touching.
We arranged for several of the ships' trips before we left. The City Tour of Santa Marta, Columbia was terrible - the guide was poor and there wasn't that much to see in the city. However, we liked the tour of Cartagena harbor. We enjoyed the Blue Train Ride and Tortuga Canal trip. We went into Puntaranas on our own and that was an awful stop. Nothing there to see or do. We took a private tour of Granada and Lake Nicaragua—it was much less expensive than the ships' tour and was quite nice. We enjoyed Huatalco, Mexico very much. I would hope that the ship could stop at better venues. The disembarkment in Acapulco was handled very well.
In all I would say that this was a wonderful trip and although Azamara Quest is a work in progress, they are learning more every day. Less
