This was the first time we had a two week break as we had just retired. As we booked late we only had the choice of two rooms we ended up with room A333 with an adjoining door.

We have done other cruises with luxury liners so i was full of apprehension but we wanted to do a full transit of Panama. The room was adequate bed really comfy. Extremely clean. Plenty of hanging space.Fridge for our champagne . Housemaid Anna first class. Food was of a high standard . I have worked in the hospitality industry so i know how hard it is to please the public. The staff in the world market restaurant were hilarious. Loved the outside cinema. Watching a new release sunbathing in 86 degrees drinking bubbles wonderful way to relax. Entertainment was mixed except for the two violinists called LADO they were spectacular. Booked whale excursion via princess cruises was truly amazing .Costa Rica and Columbia via cruise 118 great value. I would recommend catching a taxi in Nicaragua the local tourist guide in the port found an english speaking taxi driver who showed us some breathtaking sites and gave us the history of the country.

My gripe is the horrendous costs of the drinks , wifi and gratuties. They need to look at more affordable packages for these items.
