My girlfriend wanted us to go on this cruise with them. I figured it would be a lay back cruise because, face it, young people don’t go to Panama for a grand time. There were a LOT of elderly people on this cruise and only 25 kids out of 1900. The food was so so. The excursions we chose were pretty relaxing, except for the zipline excursion. That one was a disaster with many injuries, but with the waiver signed not much could be done except a refund. Activities on the ship were ok. The entertainment was so so. A comedian, a magician, dancers, and a pianist. Then they repeated them for the next 4 days. Check in and check out were fast. The promotional offers were great. They had milkshakes on the ship, but no straws. Staff was very very nice. Decor was nice also. Nice layout of the ship.

Cabin Review


The room was fine. Bathroom was smaller than I expected. Shower was tiny.
