We choose this cruise because of the Panama Canal. The itinerary was great. This was our 4th Norwegian cruise. Embarkation was fast and efficient. And then, we could not get to our cabin because the middle elevators did not allow it (cabin review below). We did not choose this cabin (4510), it was a Oceanview guarantee. As a previous reviewer stated in rough seas, the waves hit the walls. The worse was upon arrival back in Miami, we were shaken from our bed by the docking maneuvers (both noise and vibration). Overall, the cruise was good. The ports and shore excursions were good. Watching the Panama Canal transit was fantastic. We had to get up at dawn to watch because that was the time selected by whomever! We had been to Panama many years ago and did not leave the ship. What a day! Being anchored and sitting on the top deck watching ships come and go was amazing. The main dining rooms were okay. Food was underwhelming. No lobster, unless you paid extra. Service ranged from excellent to very slow. The buffets were crowded. The entertainment ranged from excellent to so-so. The casino was very smokey and I did not see anyone winning anything. Our room attendant was excellent,

Great itinerary
