Covid prevalent onboard

Review for Queen Elizabeth to Panama Canal & Central America

The cruise was going fine and we were celebrating my husbands 70th birthday. It all turned very sour when we both contracted Covid. I tested positive first and my husband 3 days later. It then became a very distressing experience. I was escorted to my isolation cabin, passing several other guests along the way. I was initially placed in an Ocean View cabin but eventually moved to a cabin with a ...

Terrible ending for Cunard cruise

In May we boarded the Queen Elizabeth for a cruise from Fort Lauderdale to San Francisco. Only after we embarked did we discover that there were active cases of Covid on board. Mask wearing was poor, social distancing weak and, worst of all there was no control of passenger and crew freely exploring each port of call. In sharp contrast to a cruise, on the same ship, which we took in October 2021 ...

I have been on many cruises with various lines and this ranks as the worst. This was a back to service cruise and had I been advised that from the beginning I probably wouldn’t have gone. The internet didn’t work half the time. The medallion worked for a few things the first week but did get better the second. Making reservations for the restaurants never worked correctly. My friend and I always ...

I choose this cruise because it was going through the Panama Canal and was going to have a stop in Panama. The itinerary was changed and it didn't stop in Panama. That was disappointing. Food in dining rooms and buffet was just ok. Nothing special. That was disappointing. However, the pizza on the upper deck was outstanding. Performers were good but selection of entertainment was ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary. My husband wanted warm weather and was very interested in seeing the old locks of the Panama Canal. While we enjoyed the smaller size of the Island princess because nothing was ever very far we really missed the international cafe on other ships where you could sit in piazza and relax, The on board entertainment was very good and the crew while this ...

Wow! The Princess staff were incredibly friendly, professional and upbeat. They were thrilled to be back onboard and it showed over the 14 night sailing. Over and over again, the staff greeted us so happily and were so helpful -- from the restroom attendants to the officers. It really was over and above in attitude and service. Great food, desserts. Medallion worked well. ...

Honestly, the first few days were a bit rough with mechanical/hotel issues but I must compliment the staff - when notified, they went above and beyond to accommodate and respond and make things right. The crew was amazing!!! Ship was 50% full and the Island Princess sparkled. I will state that the first half of the first week saw the covered/spa pool out of commission along with a majority of ...

We have been on a total of 6 cruises, 3 of which were with Holland America. The most recent trip was a 21 day Fort Lauderdale to Vancouver April 24 to May 15. We felt the itinerary offered a good mix of sea days and shore time. The food in the dining room was excellent and only one night did we have a waiter that needed more training. The room steward we had worked hard to keep us happy. Room ...

From checking in to checking out this was a great experience. The food was great. Entertainment top rated! The ship layout is easy to navigate which I can't say is true on all ships. The crew was very friendly-made you feel special. They captain was informative and not stiff in his talks as most captains are. The panama canal locks were special sight to see. We overnighted in Cartagena. Many ...
