Fantastic Ship, Crew, and passengers

Sail Date: May 2017
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Los Angeles
A relatively small ship cruise with room to roam on ship; it has less fun multi-deck water slides, surfboards and similar, but more in every other way. Crew was fantastic, always present if you needed something, never in the way if you didn't. Both the dining room and buffet were very nice and each was less crowded than any other of a dozen or so cruise experiences. We never used the specialty restaurants, but did do one Chef's Table.

The coffee card was a nice purchase for us; freshly brewed coffee and very nice tea selection at the espresso bar is unlimited and free if you purchase a discount 10 drink "card."

A small, but extraordinary outdoor 1/13 mile track on the top deck middle of the ship is a great place to see everything. A few "runners" but mostly walkers trying not to gain too much weight keep an eye out for the turtles, flying fish, dolphins, whales, and other sea life we were able to find. The passengers seemed very flexible More and pleased to be on this ship with this crew.

The entertainment was strangely wonderful. We did not expect much, but comedians, magicians, singers, and other very nice entertainment seemed to be flown in and dropped off at different ports throughout the cruise. Since the ship is relatively small, the theatre is intimate, and top notch entertainment up close and personal was a pleasant surprise. Less

Cabin review: Not sure of category7108

A very nice cabin on the left side toward the rear of the ship. No noticeable noise from ship activities, surrounded by other cabins on all sides except entry (there were no interior cabins across the hall, but whatever was there was quiet). Clean and well maintained, a perfectly suitable balcony experience.
