Panama Canal 10 day cruise

Sail Date: March 2013
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
We have cruised on princess before and have been very happy with them. The ship had just been back from dry dock, they changed the Horizon Court to a very nice spacious dining area. Food choices were very good! They also added an international cafe which we found nice for a snack after the show.
The room was ok and our stewart did what he had t o do but nothing like we have had before!
We had scheduled early seating and had two waiters. We think they have decreased the help in the dining Room because although we were there at the 5:45pm time we never got out until 7:20pm. We were always the last to get our food even though we got there before the other tables even had guests there. We had a very slow service. The Head waiter was very nice but the wait staff were slow! The food was ok they try and make it too fancy and ruin a great meal. Very salty the soups and gravies as well.
The entertainment was so so. The singers and dancers were not very good! The movies under the More stars was great although it got very windy one night and alot of people left.
You very rarely saw the cruise director out an about, I think we saw him twice!
We enjoyed meeting alot of people, especially in Trivia!! I wish they would have more of that on board! The family Feud game was great!
All in all we had a great time and would cruise again on Princess.
P.S Have only cruised 14 times but we have never sailed the same ship twice! Less

Cartagena's Cathedral

It was a very beautiful city! But I felt very uncomfortable because of the locals looking at us like they wanted our money and jewlery!

Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas

Very interesting!

All it was were shops with the same touristy carbage! Got off the ship was there 15 mins and then got back on not much to see at all!
