Star Pride Panama Canal

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Star Pride

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

Chose this ship for the small boat experience and unique ports that were promised. Out of the 4 stops 2 were cancelled and we sat anchored for 24 hours at canal inlet instead of one of our ports. A casino was still advertised on the ship's website at the time we booked but when boarded found out it was pule 3 years ago during the retro-fit. I will say the stateroom and food were excellent. I ...

Cancellation of half of the original port of calls

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

We have chosen this itinerary mostly because Bocas del Toro stop - a remote destination to be reached only by boat or by plane. Due to a alleged mechanical problem, this stop has been cancelled and we spent a whole day docked at the entrance of Panama Canal, watching cargo ships all day long - very unpleasant. There was no plan B for such a huge inconvenient - we could have docked in one beach ...

Review for a Transatlantic Cruise on Sirena

6-10 Cruises • Age 80s

This was our fifth Oceania cruise and our first transatlantic. We are in our late 70's and have some mobility challenges; so the port intensive itineraries can be exhausting. This was our experiment to see how we would like more sea days, and it did not disappoint. Sirena, one of the smaller O ships, is also a good size for us. We selected a penthouse suite right by the aft elevators; so we ...

We like the smaller boats, 800 guests or less, that cater to people looking for comfortable rooms, good service, fun destinations, and great dining. Many reviews give Oceania high marks in this regard and we to compare them with our regular cruise line of choice. Our room with balcony, although smaller than our norm, was comfortable, well laid out with adequate storage, clean and well ...

We have been on Marina 4 times & once on Sirena. I won’t say there haven’t been issues here & there but I’ve found them to be wonderful, great excursions, great food. We always find plenty of good choices for excursions. Really loved the Italian cooking class we took in Rome. Lots of fun doing the excursions but even when we don’t take one Oceania provides transportation to a good spot in town & ...

My husband and I took the Serina cruise March 3rd - 10th. First we stayed in a penthouse room. Our butler was wonderful and housekeeper took great care of us. The Red Ginger was a great experience and food. We did have one good meal at you main restaurant and waves was our go to for lunch. Our disappointment started at the main restaurant when our food sat out for some time (my husband ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

Crew – 5 stars, Food – 4 to 5 stars, Ship – 4 stars EMBARKATION – in Aruba – a long walk from where the cab drops you off to the yacht, because only the big ships get front docking. They have a shuttle, but we elected to walk our luggage, so that was a bit hot in the blazing sun. Covered tent at the gangway with someone to check off your name and label your bags that the crew will take to your ...

Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Wind Star

Decided to try Windstar after liking the smaller ship experience on Viking and Azamara and Viking River. Overall, the food was very good, the crew friendly and eager to please however we started off by delaying our sail away by a day due to "two small holes" in the hull that required underwater welding. This resulted in a sea day instead of our scheduled port of call in Cartagena which was the ...
