Panama cruise new locks. Locks were great, that was certainly the best part of cruise…

Ruby is showing its age. The medallion system that Princess forces on you is problematic.

You might order a ginger ale from a waiter (that takes 5 minutes to enter into his device) then wait 10-20 minutes for delivery to your table. This happened again and again. You might order a cocktail while sitting at a bar, then get someone walking up to you from another bar on another floor having a duplicate for you… Guess that’s ok if ya wanted to get smashed… every time you want to use wifi to look for fellow companions on board it wouldn’t work unless you restarted app. We had an embarkment time of 1PM which we were prompt to then had to wait outside in line for 70 minutes to get inside. Then another line for 20 minutes to get yet another Covid test. Another wait of 40 minutes for results. This is of course after getting a Covid test 2 days prior. Then on second day of cruise everyone had the pleasure of another 20 minute line for yet the third Covid test at sea.
