I was on the same cruise as the other commentator. The cruise was excellent. One port was cancelled because of criminal activity in Mexico, the other because the port, at the last minute, booked a cargo ship into the space that Oceania had booked. In neither case were these problems the fault of Oceania.

I agree that the timing of the port call in Georgetown was less than optimal, but she knew that when she booked the cruise.

Overall, it was an excellent cruise, blessed by extremely good weather.

She doesn't like trivia? It is a big thing on most cruises and has a large, enthusiastic group of participants. We have a lot of fun with it.


Very good.

So-so. Trivia was a lot of fun and the lectures were quite good. There were the usual activities: shuffleboard, table tennis, various putting contests.

I didn't take any of the excursions.

Overall, it was excellent. Everyone who likes cruises should make a point of doing a Panama Canal cruise; this was my fifth one, and it is always interesting, but the first time is always the most impressive. Put a Panama Canal transit on your bucket list!
