Going through The Panama Canal

We chose this cruise because of The Panama Canal complete journey.

I was apprehensive about the idea of 'free style cruising' however. Having been on a Celebrity cruise in November I also hoped it would compete well.

The embarkation was efficient in Miami.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin BC

Clean, comfortable. Toilet area too small!

Cleaning of the cabin was done far too late in the mornings. WE WERE ALWAYS THE LAST ONE SERVICED.

Port Reviews

Cartagena (Colombia)

THe best. It included a walking tour of the old walled city with an excellent guide. good value

Huatulco

Lovely port to just walk around on your own.

Puerto Vallarta

Excellent port with taxis available at the dock into the town. Good shopping facing the ship too.

Mazatlan

Just as it says a trip around the city. Needed more time for shopping so if I returned I would just hire a taxi.

Puerto Quetzal (Antigua)

Took transport into the city which was excellent and informative on the journey.

Miami

Open top bus tour
