This was a dream trip! We loved all five countries we visited, our "boat", our warm and congenial group and especially our fearless leader Marylin. Thank you, Road Scholar. We'll be back!

This is a wonderful program. It has just the right amount of activity and free time and the MS Zuiderdam is a well-run cruise ship. The Panama Canal is a wonder to see and this program is a great way to see it.

This was a wonderful trip to places I knew very little about.Swimming in the clear blue sea at Half Moon Cay was a memorable experience. Aruba and Curacao were fascinating places to visit and Marylin our leader was very helpful and knowledgeable.The whole trip went very smoothly and was an enjoyable learning experience.

This was a most interesting program. The highlights for me were visiting the beautiful colonial city of Cartagena, Colombia and the Panama Canal. I also especially enjoyed the Heliconia del Caribe tropical flower tour in Limon, Costa Rica and a tour of a pineapple plantation including the processing facility. Our guide, Marylin Lisowski was outstanding and the cruise ship, Holland America's Zuiderdam, was great too.
