We originally did this cruise back in 2014 on the Century and had a wonderful time. My next door neighbor Tom wanted to go on a cruise with his lady friend and asked us where they should go so we did some various choices and he picked the Panama Canal and they wanted us to show them the ropes. Our flight was on time the day of the cruise and we were able to board early enough to grab a bite to eat at the Buffet. Rooms were ready by the time we were finished however luggage did not arrive until after we got back from dinner. Our stateroom attendant was Efraime and he was amazing and got us what we needed. During the first sea day we noted that the temperature in the Buffet was very chilly and most had jackets or heavy sweaters on, in our cabin we turned the cooling up so it was warmer in there. The coolness was the trend throughout the ship, so I always brought a sweater with; the only place it was not chilly was by the pool and the spa. I thought the food was great wherever we at. We had requested a window in the main dining room so Tom and his friend could have an ocean view while we ate and Celebrity gave us this window for dining. Tom and his friend commented at every meal on how wonderful everything was, especially the breads. Our waiter was Mega, Assistant waiter was I. Wayan and our Sommelier was Kathryne and they were the best I have ever had. The Entertainment on Board was the best I have seen on a Celebrity Ship so I do hope that they keep that trend going forward. We booked 2 shore excursions on Board the first one being the Train, land and boat tour in Puntarainas and this was very fun. The 2nd one we had trouble with the person behind the counter because he walked right past us to talk to friends who I now know where staff people and he set them up on another tour before he helped us. This was reported to the supervisor. This tour was the bus and carriage ride in Cartegana were fun, My neighbor Tom and his lady friend had a ball on the ship, they took in everything from watching movies on the 11th deck, playing bingo, pool, bars, the shows and eating. They even booked another cruise for next November to the Southern Caribbean by themselves. Disembarking is another subject entirely. Apparently a number of people on a different ship had not completed their customs requirements and this held up the customs line for more than 2 hours. This is the longest I have had to wait to disembark and we were the last group called. Finally, on day 8 of the cruise, I came down with a very bad cold and it lasted until after I got home when I had to go to the doctor. I blame a lot of it on the air conditioning on the ship. However, our stateroom attendant helped to make me comfortable while I was suffering and brought an extra blanket and lots of ice. If I had been healthier it would have made this cruise a lot more enjoyable. Hopefully our next cruise in March, 2017 will be better. 2 gopher cruisers
