Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Oceanview (obstructed view)

decided to join friends who were already booked on this cruise. Panama Canal was on our bucket list so we thought "why not"

There was a technical issue on embarkation which had us feeling very relieved to be Elite status as many passengers waited several hours to get on board. As it was, we did not get our cabin key cards until almost midnight on day 1.

We ended getting an excellent price on the cruise by watching the sales and contacting our cruise planner when we came across a better deal.

Cabin Review

Oceanview (obstructed view)

Excellent cabin - would definitely look at booking it again. Only issue was the awkward tv placement.
