Sail Date: Feb 2017
Cabin: Mid-Ship Oceanview Porthole Window

It was our 25 wedding anniversary, we chose going through the Panama canal. This was our first cruise. We disembarked on every stop. We enjoyed the sunshine, the itinerary was geared to the older folk, but we found things to do in the sports part of the ship. The entertainment was good until the nights with the two Russian circus couple, they were the highlight and wished for more. The main buffet was also a good feature but towards the end of the cruise, we picked O'Sheehans as our place to go for wings. We loved the freedom to eat when we wanted to. We enjoyed meeting all the staff from different countries. I would have enjoyed a tour of the ship, and only found out later that they did have a tour. More information could have been put on the ships wedsite on our tablet, time change/current time; our port and excursions etc. It would have been nice to have a digital clock in the cabin to see the time.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Oceanview Porthole Window

Cabin OF

Cabin was small, low ceiling, small bathroom, under our bed was some other stored bedding, so we had to have our luggage in our living area, lighting was dim. Although there are some issues, we slept well, neighbors and hallways were very quiet.
