THE BACGROUND After 3 cruises in 2008 and 2009 I had decided to stop to cruise because I felt a gradual lack of quality . But as I was in Brazil and profiting of direct connections with Panamá I decided to try another cruise. The reservation was made through a travel agent without problems. However whwn I intend to reserve a dinner in Chops Grill and some excursions I was surprised with a refusal ...

This was the repositioning cruise from Colon to Ft. Lauderdale.  Flew to Miami, overnight, then on to Panama City the next morning.  After going through customs in Panama, there was a lot of Chaos and confusion in trying to get onto the RCCL transportation to the ship.  Since they don't send luggage tags ahead of time if you do electronic documents (I won't do that again) there were about 300 ...

Background - My wife and I are RCI diamond members and this was our first cruise as diamond members. We are in our mid-forties with two boys' ages 5 and 11. We normally take two cruises per year. This was the first time that we flew to a cruise with the kids and it was also our first repositioning cruise. RCI is our favorite line. We also like Cunard. This was our 16th cruise and 8th on RCI. We ...

Be warned that this cruise is primarily in Spanish due to the fact that 80% to 90% are Spanish speaking passengers from Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Costa Rica, and other Central and South American countries. There are plenty of English speaking passengers and the staff is excellent in English. Most of the entertainment is in Spanish. The music was very latin in flavor. The food also takes on a ...

We are a family of 4. 12 and 15 yr. old kids. Travel quite a bit to odd places, not your typical 5 star all-inclusive resort style family. We also speak "enough" Spanish to get by. Not fluently, but enough. Would highly recommend knowing at least your basics. Gracias and Por favor and perdon go a long way. We got great Continental Air tickets from Detroit to Panama for $258.00 a piece. ...

We decided to cruise out of Colon, Panama, because it was so different than the other Caribbean cruises. We figured we'd already BE in the Caribbean and wouldn't spend extra time traveling TO it. Flying into Panama City on Copa Airlines only cost about $400 each, the same amount it would have cost to fly into Florida. Panama City is good for a trip to the Miraflores Locks to see some ships go ...

If you have the opportunity to take a Royal Caribbean cruise out of Central or South America ... take it. My wife and I were on the January 10, 2009 Enchantment of the Seas cruise from Colon, Panama to Cartagena and Santa Marta, Colombia and the Netherlands Antilles. When booking the cruise we weren't told that the ship's language for everything would be Spanish, or that two thousand of the ...
