2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

We did as a couple the same cruise 3 years ago with Pullman`s Zenith and even if we would not expect luxury from this company overall the trip was nice. Being in Panama again and counting this is the only option to take a cruise in Colon we decided to show the same itinerary to our kids but what a let down this time.. Starting with the basics - the cabin. Booking rather late the best we ...

We had a terrific time on this Latin American cultural immersion cruise. There was Latin music to dance to every night. I don't speak Spanish, but all of the Royal Caribbean staff spoke English and we thoroughly enjoyed the Latin American influenced food. The entertainment was excellent, and we loved the acrobatic aerial show in the Centrum. The food in the main dining room was outstanding, and we ...

Coming from Western Canada, the airfare to Panama was about the same as Miami or Puerto Rico but the cruise was better priced than the others so we chose this cruise. We rented a car at the Airport in Panama City and stayed overnight at the Mariott Metromall. We were lucky enough to buy a toll card from the attendant at Thrifty. The drive to the hotel and the drive out of the City was a challenge. ...

We had a very nice cruise which was both exciting seeing all the new ports and experiencing the Latin American culture and also relaxing as for us there wasn't a lot to do on the ship so there was no guilt in going to bed early! We stayed the night before the cruise in the Country Inn and Suites Panama Canal and then hired Rudy's Private tours to show us the sites of Panama (both pre and post ...

My wife and I took this "Cultural Awareness" cruise last week. Although the majority of the passengers were from Latin America, as English speaking Canadians, we felt no discomfort whatsoever. All of the staff onboard spoke English, and Royal Caribbean delivered their typical excellent service. If you enjoy the evening shows, then you may be dissapointed as the majority where in Spanish, however ...

My wife and her parents were excited to take a South Caribbean cruise last April. Have cruised out of South Florida before and thought that flying and cruising out of Panama would be different and exciting. The ports of call were Cartagena Colombia, Bonnaire, Curacao, and Aruba. The first red flag should have been when our travel agent called 2 weeks before the cruise to inform us that this was a ...

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 ...

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. ...
