The Panama Canal is an engineering masterpiece. The cruise is an experience that is worth doing any time. I was told that it is different going west to east rather than east to west. I really didn't see the difference. If you have the opportunity to go do, I don't see how anyone would regret it. The ports are Cabo San Lucas, Acapulco, Huatulco, Puntarenas and Cartagena as well as the transit. New Orleans was the final port. If you have the time a fun place to stay for a few days after the cruise. On the ship the restaurant at the rear, the stern, on the fan tail is often uncrowded and has different food that is offered in the Garden Cafe. The view is great and unless the weather is not good a great place to eat. The speciality restaurants are good. The Service in La Cucina was the best. Cagney's steaks are good but the service varies. If you are in the Haven you can have breakfast and lunch in the Moderno Restaurant. The food is good, it is uncrowded and the service is A+. Try the beef dip sandwich.

Full transit through the Panama Canal.

Cabin Review

Cabin 14510
The family two bedroom suite in the Haven is always nice. It has room for three adults easily. Care from the staff is top notch.
