At 2600$ for a balcony garanty for 2 people, Panama canal cruise,,, it was a real deal. The canal is very impressive, same for the man who described, throughout the crossing, the operation of the canal and its history. That was really the highlight of the cruise. Let s continue on the positive side, my dw and I had big fun at the go-kart race track, the Element show was excellent,,, only one representation for 14 days all the other representations were cancelled, the 2 Ukrainians acrobats were also fantastic, the 3 differents shows of the Beattle were also excellent. The food at the Bistro and the Cagney was excellent. The food at the MDR is average and very repetitive,,, nothing to compare at HAL or Celebrity. The balcony cabin foward deck 12 was comfo and quiet but a bit smaller than the average and really not enough storage. Most of the staff were very friendly and efficient and more mature than the ones on the Odyssey of the Sea that we just finished a transatlantic cruise 3 weeks prior the present one.

That s it for the positive, now the so-so,,,

The food at the buffet was between cold and cold, even when they were arriving with a fresh supply plate, it was cold, never seen anything like this. The variety of food was non-existant (almost). For the breakfast, the coffe is not so good,,, the sausage were awfull, the bacon cold, some toasters were toasting only one side of the bred, but the omelet stations were effecient and good. No possibility to get fresh pancakes or fresh waffles, everything is cooked long time before presentation and it shows,,, Most eggs Benidict were overcooked due to the delay between cooking and serving.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

The balcony garanty put us 12 deck fwr (very forward) it is a long walk to the elevator. The cabin is standard, a bit smaller than the average et very short in storage,,, the cabin is quiet and the bedding is comfo. The bathroom is well set up, shower is large enough with 2 dispensers of 2 differents type of soaps
