Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Balcony

The Panama Canal was on our bucket list. Just the week before we set sail the Coronavirus scare began. We chose to go ahead with our plans and are so glad we did. There was a major computer glitch that delayed our boarding for 2-3 hours. Area was packed. No food or drink offered. Toilet facilities were out in the parking lot. Very uncomfortable.

Once we boarded things went exceedingly well.

Our steward, Danny, was welcoming and helpful. Our room was clean and ready to go.

Cabin Review


Clean. Somewhat small, but that’s to be expected. Bathroom was very small.

Storage, of course, was limited, but adequate. Bed and pillows were very comfortable. Balcony small but functional.

TV worked well.

Laundry on each floor. I would highly recommend removing the 3 ironing boards out of the laundry and putting one fold up wall ironing board. That way you could fit 4 sets of washer/dryers. Two sets is not adequate.
