Pros;s - nice cabins, decent food, good dining service, ample snacks in lounge areas, free wifi. Con's - no TV as promised. However the real con was the amount we paid compared to what we received. Major issues with hotel reservations on the night prior to the cruise. People were bused between three different hotels and some did not get rooms until after midnight. We were on their last cruise from Costa Rica through the Panama Canal and ending in Columbia. The excursions in Costa Rica were not as promised. Many on those on this cruise selected this itinerary to see Manual Antonio National Park and Cobia Island. The National Park was closed the day we were in Quepos and they decided not to take us to Cobia Island as it would be be too crowded that day. Instead they sent us on a hike to an island on unsafe boats (no life preservers) without real guides. We had a near death experience with one of our tour participants and RSC did not have a cruise rep on this tour. Our tours in Panama and in Colombia were good. If you are considering the cruises to Cuba be sure that you read good reviews about the cruise, tours and etc before booking. PSC does not provide the cruise that they publicize on their brochures so buyers beware!!!!

Cruisers beware!!!
