The ports were new to us and the timing worked so we chose the 30-day Incan Empire Voyage. Embarkation was OK, we heard later this year the ship will be under review as to updates. Cabin fine, but the tiny TV and limited channels was annoying when in quarantine. Staff were friendly and helpful. Entertainment seems to have improved, enjoyed most of the comedians, but music still too loud. Good selection of presenters. Wish the port talks were available on TV in rooms, not just the excursion sales. We didn’t realize that some of the ports were industrial and how long the free shuttles would be. Also the poverty, so I recommend taking a lot of $1 bills. We are so fortunate.
The biggest disappointment was the food. On the first night, Feb. 2, there was about an hour+ wait for the dining room (we chose anytime dining) so we went to the Lido. I chose a baked potato, chicken and green beans. The butter just sat in my potato, the chicken was not hot and the lovely green beans were not crisp or hot. Second night was Super Bowl so the boys went to watch the game and the girls went to the dining room. Third night, couldn’t get into the dining room again without a long wait so spoke with the Hotel Manager, I mentioned the disappointing cold dinner on the first night and our friends (4 star mariners) complained they never had to wait long for dinner. We were comped to the Pinacle Dining room, meals good.
My husband got sick and went to the medical centre on Feb. 11, staff caring and prescribed Tamilflu for him and recommended I take some too. He returned on Feb. 17, had X-ray and new prescription. This is March 9 at time of writing and my husband is still congested and coughing.
Nice shower, but poor water pressure. Would be nice to have a better TV and more channels. Staff kept us well supplied with fresh towels.
Panama - Aerial Tram & eCo encounter. A couple of people saw a monkey way off, but that was about all the wild life spotted.
Did 5 bays catamaran, hoped for more than the barge type of boat, but there was lots of shade and room to walk around.
Took cab to San Jose del Cabo for a change enjoyed it. Did lunch at Tequila Shark as we enjoyed it so uch last year - unfortunately sometimes you just can’t go back.
Enjoyed the Malecon and lunch at Pipis
Better than last year’s visit. Port with big blue sculpture.
Took bus for Antigua on your own. Many women selling woven fabric items.
Stayed there a couple of nights before trip and took ship’s shuttle to airport.
