This was one of the most amazing trips I have ever taken. I think that everyone should experience the wonder that is the Panama Canal. This cruise started in San Juan, Puerto Rico and embarkation was very easy and smooth. I was traveling with a friend and we got to the pier about 1:30 and was able to walk right on the ship and go straight to our cabin to put down carry on bags and then have lunch.
We were in an inside cabin which seemed roomier than others we had stayed in. The beds and linens were new and very comfortable. Our stateroom attendant, Korinne, was very friendly and quick to make up our cabin when we left.
Many others have gone into detail about the ship itself and I won't do that here. All I can say is that it's very clean and orderly. We encountered extremely friendly staff and will certainly miss many of them. They all work very hard and I was happy to give them tips over and above the suggested amount.
