The Panama Canal did not disappoint. The ports and excursions were fine. I thought the food was average overall, albeit slightly better in the dining room than buffet. The buffet had no traffic flow - eggs there, omelets there, pancakes hidden some where else. Food service seemed desultory to me. Service was better in the days when gratuities went directly to your waiter. Now, with tips split and more people eating buffet, there is little incentive for excellent service. The commentary on the canal and various ports of call was excellent. I always looked forward to the orientation talk. Colon was interesting. Some people took excursions through the Canal, even though we transited the next day. We missed a private tour we had booked and hired a cab - Rosario showed us downtown Colon, his school, house and where he grew up. I would not go in to town alone. Best place to buy a hat: the Panama Hat store in the compound

Ship was nice, food and service average
