I wanted to see the Panama Canal and surrounding countries. This was my retirement present. This was a great price, and the idea of a 14 day cruise sounded wonderful. It did not disappoint. Getting to see the panama Canal was absolutely awesome, plus we got visit Columbia, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Acapulco and Cabo San Lucas. It was so amazing. The staff was beyond exceptional and service was wonderful. My room was clean and our needs were always met. Everyone was very friendly and acted like they enjoyed their job. The entertainment was excellent and their was so many offerings of things to do on the ship you were never bored, plus it seemed to me there was something for everyone. I definitely cruise with them again. The excursions offered were great and so were the guides that did them. Book early though because they do sell out. This whole experience in my opinion was a 5 star event! Read Less

Ship was extremely well managed. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was better than the average. Evening shows were mixed. Some very good shows and some were not so good. Ports visited were not as good as what we have experienced in the Caribbean. Embarkation in Miami was poorly organized and problematic. Disembarkation from San Pedro was much better and well organized. Management staff was always in view and ran a tight ship. The Panama Canal experience was handled very well by cruise staff. Daily activities for sea days fell far short of what we have experienced on other ships. Fitness equipment was average. Elliptical machines were not the best quality, However, extremely good channel selection on the cable on individual machines. Weights were way off in stated poundage. Read Less
