Too Much Smoking

Sail Date: May 2011
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

The cruise was not great. Not as exciting as previous cruises, maybe the worst because of the smoking on board. Both regulated and unregulated. Worst was the Habana Bar. To get to the internet room you had to pass this bar that is located in a thorough way that allowed smoking and even encourages cigar smoking. Can you imagine if your child wanted to do some internet checking and had to go through this room. There was a good rock band that played in the room but we could not appreciate their music due to the smoking. next in line to avoid if you could not tolerate smoking would be the Piano Bar and then the Sport's bar. We were on the veranda deck (8th Floor). Most of the times on the hallway to get to and from our room we could smell smoke residuals. Our friends in the 7th floor could not use their balcony as much due to the next room's occupants constantly smoking in the balcony. I saw people smoke where they were not supposed to and were not interrupted by the staff. More

Overall, food was not the best.I have seen better in Carnival.

Cozumel was nice, easy, friendly and beautiful.

Limon, not really a tourist destination and could be unsafe.

Colon, aside from the Panama Canal this is not tourist friendly at all. Less
