Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2019
  • Destination: the Panama Canal & Central America
  • Cabin Type: Oceanview

Great cruise, great food, great service, but mediocre entertainment.Two of the port visits were too short. No free time to wonder around the port cities. The cruise director was never seen by me or my wife. The music in the pool was mediocre to poor. No stimulating activities for the younger crowds. The shows were few(3). The port cities were great, but in Cartagena and Jamaica the port time was too short. The dinning experience was great as well as the food. The waiters and the greeters were amazing. The room service was excellent as well as the Gym. After dinner was not much to do, activities were boring. We went to bed early. Overall a good cruise, with great ports. By the way, the city of Colon was scary at best. I hope passengers are never allowed to walk alone in the area. Again the cruise director was NOT GOOD
