Main reason for picking this cruise was firstly, travelling through the Panama Canal and secondly as this trip was offered by Celebrity Cruises, whom we have traveled with before. Our journey started in San Diego, which is an amazing city and well worth travelling to in advance - we spent a day visiting the Midway and the gas-lamp area.
Boarding the ship was different to what I have experienced before, we were advised that we had priority boarding, but whilst we were in a separate queue, we waited our turn as the same check in clerks were also checking in guests from other cabin types, we were then given a ticket and waited again for that number to be called before we could board - it was not until that evening we were made aware that we should have been invited to a special lunch - these are just little things to bear in mind in upgrading to Concierge Class.
Our cabin was clean, had plenty of storage space and a comfortable bed and the room attendant visible if required.
Nice Cabin, plenty of storage, good range of cosmetic in the bathroom (gel, shampoo, conditioner, lotion and shower caps). Bed was comfortable and space underneath to hide suitcases.
Took the tender to port and wandered around independently. Enjoyed a great Sangria in the bar across the road from Diamonds International
Take the Auto Safari and get up close to African and South American animals. Amazing day out.
Not a great port - run down area - but the market stalls are worth a visit.
