5 Puerto Vallarta
Puerto Vallarta
The small, quaint fishing community of Puerto Vallarta, with its cobblestoned streets that seemed to climb straight up to the jungle behind it, was recognized as a city of Mexico in 1918 but was largely unknown to the rest of the world. But in 1963, during the filming of John Huston's "Night of the Iguana," the sleepy town was invaded by reporters hoping to catch a glimpse of Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, who were carrying on their illicit love affair -- and a tourist industry was born.

Panama Canal Transit
Linking the Atlantic to the Pacific, you can marvel at the vast locks, lakes and impenetrable rain forest as you pass through the Panama Canal.

Oranjestad, Aruba
Being one of the Dutch Antilles, Aruba still retains its Dutch charm. You will notice this when you see the many windmills that are to be found in the island. Aruba is characterised by fine beaches, sapphire blue waters, almost year-round sunshine and exotic cactus. In the capital Oranjestad, admire the pastel coloured houses and the palm-lined streets. Then go snorkelling and discover the incredible coral formation and tropical fish. Other highlights include gold mine ruins in the countryside, Guadirikiri Caves and the fascinating natural limestone bridge. If you like shopping, you’ll love Aruba and its fabulous shops and outdoor markets.

The stateroom was very comfortable and spacious and we liked having a bath as well as a shower but it was noisy. On the whole the food was good but the self service restaurant was very crowded and it was often difficult to find a table even at time when we didn’t expect it to be busy. One had to be served from the salad bar which made it very slow and difficult to choose just what one wanted. It was impossible to book a table for 2 in the dining room in the evening between 5.15 pm and 8pm unless one did it several days in advance. The quality of the food was variable except on gala nights when it was excellent. Space was wasted round the pool by cabanas which he’d to be booked but remained unoccupied almost all the time during our cruise.

Just back from a wonderful cruise on the Neiuw Amsterdam, it was the first time with Holland and America but the best ship we have been on in 17 cruises. We booked with Iglu and spoke to a very nice lady called Tina Conlan who was brilliant. She kept in touch by email with every detail and the transfers where there waiting for us, everything went smoothly. We even got an upgrade on the ship to a balcony which made it even better. Have booked another cruise to Australia and New Zealand so i am confident there won't be any problems.
