Be warned that this cruise is primarily in Spanish due to the fact that 80% to 90% are Spanish speaking passengers from Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Costa Rica, and other Central and South American countries. There are plenty of English speaking passengers and the staff is excellent in English. Most of the entertainment is in Spanish. The music was very latin in flavor. The food also takes on a latin flair as well. There are printed materials in English and the major announcements including the life boat drill are also spoken in English as well as Spanish.
With all that said, if you are tired of the old Caribbean cruises that do the standard Eastern, Western islands or the standard Southern out of Puerto Rico, this is a great cruise that will provide you with different islands and a totally different feel on the ship.
Since this was the first cruise that debarks out of Colon there were a few wrinkles.
It is a standard cabin that is about 120 sqft. The closet space is good. They put the mini-bar on top of the desk that takes valuable space. There are 4 bottles of water, 6 sodas and packs of mixed snacks. Since it is at the very foremost of the ship there is a lot of motion. Close to the front stairs.
