have just returned from panama and mayan temple cruise loved it.(6th cruise with FO) weather was fantastic. first time doing a warmer climate.crew as you come to expect with fred olsen were superb. Waiters in bar always knowing your favorite tipple. The cabin although narrow was kept lovely and clean by the stewardess . The food was good and the two dedicated waiters in the grampian restaurant very attentive and friendly. The palms cafe a more informal buffet style restaurant was always busy but you could always go to one of the more formal restaurants for breakfast and lunch and have same food and would be a great deal quieter. Indian and Asian nights in palm café were fab. In all of the two weeks I never came across a member of staff who did not greet you with a friendly hello or good evening wherever you were on the ship. The entertainment from the braemar show company was brilliant and we loved to go to the coral club to watch the In Tune Band who were by far our favorite entertainment. I am afraid we found rest of the evening entertainment a bit jaded and same which I think now needs new ideas and new blood. Some same old daytime activities needs looking at. Some of the trips were not up to scratch, we had a refund of 40% on one to santa marta. Jamaica ,Aruba ,Carteghena ,Cozumel were all good ports of call. The boat trip down the panama canal although interesting dragged on a bit.

Crew Superb!
