Chance to see the Panama Canal on a cruise with several interesting stops. The food was excellent if a little repetitious at times. The entertainment was first class in the theater and in the bars. Colibri gave older people a chance to dance to their favorites. Katerina related to her audience so well. We upgraded to a balcony cabin and were glad we did so, it was kept spotless every day. The Panama Canal transit was great and so interesting. We were disappointed with our two excursions. The boat trip and divers in Acapulco was mostly looking at houses with just a few minutes watching the divers from a great distance. We saw only 3 divers. The boat was uncomfortable. The canoe trip through the mangrove swamp was extremely uncomfortable and we didn't see any wildlife as we had expected. Embarkation was total chaos. We were put in a large room and given numbers and told to wait. After the numbers ran out, people just walked past all of us and went straight on to the ship. There was no supervision or direction in the room. We could not find any personnel to deal with this problem. Debarkation was not much better. The ticket colors were supposed to help us arrive at the airport in time but all the colors were mixed up in the line. We waited a very long time to get on a bus. We arrived at the airport one hour before the flight and friends arrived 5 hours before their flight. Again there were not enough people to organize this. Overall we had a good cruise and will definitely sail with Norwegian again.

Longest cruise for us but lots to do if we wanted.

Glad we updated to a balcony. The cabin was clean and spacious and we were very comfortable.
