Where I stayed
Crystal Harmony (Rated #1 cruise line)
When you cruise with Crystal, they take care of their customers before you board their ship. My wife a I flew down to Los Angeles from San Francisco, and from the time we boarded the plane in Los Angeles, everything all-of-a-sudden changed. It was a United flight, but the service was not "economy." We had table cloth meal service, and it was filet mignon with wine for lunch.
The itinerary called the "Panama Serenade" embarked from Acapulco and disembarked in New Orleans 12-days later. We traveled 2,997 nautical miles or 3,446 land miles. We spent three nights at the Sheraton New Orleans hotel (on Canal Street) after the cruise to enjoy the sites and great food in jazz city.
The itinerary had only four port stops before arriving at our final destination that included our transit through the Panama Canal; Acapulco, Puntarenas, Grand Cayman, Cozumel, Playa Del Carmen, and New Orleans.
I'll let the pictures do the talking.
For people who love cruising, I highly recommend cruising with Crystal at least once for the experience.
