Itinerary: Panama Canal
This was our first cruise and it was great! The food was great! We would go on purpose just to get pineapple! We went to Punta arenas, Costa Rica, transit the Panama Canal (that was interesting), Cartagena, Columbia, Dominica, Aruba, Barbados, & St. Thomas. Our favorite islands were Aruba, Barbados, & St. Thomas. We can't decide which was our favorite. We made comments to ourselves concerning living conditions such as Cartagena, Columbia where a little boy was sticking a stick through bars with a cup attached to the top of the stick. The entertainment on the boat were dynamic & very well performed. We had an outside stateroom with a balcony & it was wonderful. It was kind of crowded, but who cares, your only in there to sleep.
There were many things to do on the ship. The service on the ship was impeccable & without flaw. They were the most interesting people to talk to. The patrons were mostly from 50-70. We only seen 3 kids on board, so there are no wild & crazy kids running around. There were 2 pools, a couple spas, a game room for kids (which was always empty), a fitness center, stores, beauty salon, many places to eat (until your heart's content). We would highly recommend this cruise & that it ended way to soon.
