Panama Canal/Aruba/Costa Rica: Zuiderdam Cruise Review by Lucy12345
Overall Member Rating
Panama Canal/Aruba/Costa Rica
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
However, the shops on board were way overpriced and the service in the Italian (reservations needed but no extra charge) restaurant was awful. It left us wondering if this is where the line trains their waiters. Salads were forgotten one night and bread another. Wine had to be ordered three times one night and two the other. That said, the worst rip off was the internet - slow and expensive. In Aruba there is a very cheap internet More cafe right on the dock at the terminal. Wait and walk around town and do it later when there are no lines. I think it was $6 for 90 minutes! The ship charged $50 for less time.
In terms of side trips: the travel through the whole Panama Canal was expensive ($149) but worth it if you have never done it. Less
Cabin review: VA Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom
Good location; bathtub a plus; plenty of closet space and room service breakfast even on the day of disembarkation was a plus.Read All Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom (VA) Reviews >>
