Our cabin was spacious and comfortable. Dining was a pleasure and the ship was easy to manoeuvre around. Loved the talk on the History of Faberge and the chance to see Faberge Eggs - Brilliant. We also enjoyed the BBC Planet Earth programmes.
Seems pointless writing a cruise review if it will not be published if you do not agree with the comments.
I enjoyed cruise but was dissapointed that we didnt see more of Panama Canal. Entertainment on ship not too good. Staff very good and helpful. Pre cruise arrangements good but Collins Hotel in Miami very basic.. Post cruise arrangements awful. Spent all day in Miami Airport. No special assistance organised and very disjointed. All in all would not recommend this cruise to anyone elderly travelling on their own.
Thoroughly enjoyed recent Panama Canal / Caribbean Sunfarer on the Zuiderdam. Veranda stateroom on Deck 10 was excellent both for amenities and location and enjoyed a great deal of sunshine. Ports visited were all interesting in different ways and combination of ports and sea days worked well. Choice and variety of food was excellent and entertainment catered for most tastes. The ambience was very friendly and relaxed and all crew and staff members contributed to the very warm and welcoming atmosphere. Would definitely be happy to travel on this vessel again.
