Sail Date: Dec 2018
Cabin: Mini-Suite with Balcony

We chose this cruise because we wanted to experience going through the Panama Canal. It did not disappoint. We had a mini-suite balcony and were on starboard side and had the best view ever. Our TV was on with full play by play explanation of what was happening. We even had room service breakfast and enjoyed the 3 hours going through the locks....amazing !!!

The biggest complaint we had was the anytime dining option. The shows were either at 6pm or 8pm. if we ate at 6 or 6:30 when there were no line-ups, we had to rush to the show to get good seats in the theatre. If we watched the 6pm show and then went to dinner....well that was another story. There handling of the Anytime Dining is subpar. The 3rd night we complained and the Maitre'd even came to make his excuses. He said he had 1000 diners to seat….really we were 8 of them. Others that came in groups of 4 or less got seated promptly. The food was perfect and the service impeccable once we were seated.
