14 day Panama Canal cruise from Miami ending in L.A. Embarkation and disembarkation were a mess. Getting on, the ship's computers went down and they had to manually check people in. Getting off in L.A. the port security was strict making us 1 hour late but we still had time to get to the airport. Costa Rica and Nicaragua weren't worth the stop. Colombia, Guatemala, Acapulco, & Cabo San Lucas were decent stops. Ship was clean and the staff and crew were good. There was no interactive TVs in the staterooms so you couldn't make shore excursions or check account balances from your cabin. The "Sports Bar" didn't show the MLB World Series, mostly soccer and the NBA. Not a true sports bar. Maybe should rename it the "Sometimes Sports Bar" Food was pretty good as was the entertainment. Didn't visit the Casino. The beverage package (UBP) that was a perk as well as the prepaid gratuities were a nice inclusion. Had to have medical attention while onboard and they were very professional, both the doctor and two nurses. Jeffery, the bartender in the Champagne & Martini Bar was fantastic. Overall a good cruise and other than the items mentioned above, no problems.
