This is not a detailed review about each stop as this has been done, but one about enjoying life.

The stars of this cruise are the animals large and small, land and water.

We went in the quote "rainy season" and never had a drop. We went when people said you won't see a lot of animals and we checked off everyone except the albatross (as we new it would not be there). There were babies of all species and some even enjoying each other ....

The ship is perfect for this voyage and the crew is great the hotel manager has this all under control.

Some of the passengers were a bit snobbish and stuck to their own group they were traveling with and made this a little unpleasant when stuck on their panga. You learned quickly who you wanted to hike with and most were eager to share the enjoyment of nature.

The guides were tops making things fun in the heat and sharing their wealth of knowledge with a laugh along the way. Always keeping you safe.

The food was fine we did not eat meat but the fish,chicken and side dishes were plentiful and well presented.

I have traveled many places on different lines and they have this down to a science.

Thanks Celebrity for sharing this part of the world with my husband and I it was his 60th birthday present and he said he could not of had a better one.

Cabin review:

The rooms are small but very livable as you are not in them much. The shower are nice with glass doors. Lots of storage space for small rooms. Clean usable and well taken care of with new flat panel T.V. which you never turn on as you are tired when you return and want to shower and review your pic. of the day.
