Had a great time on the emerald princess, wonderful weather, great food and service. Entertainment was enjoyable. Back to back cruises, Panama Canal LOs Angeles to Fort Lauderdale, followed by a 14 days Circle the Caribbean. If you like a great evening in a fun atmosphere I suggest the Wheelhouse bar on Deck 7 next to the Princess Theater. James Naldo acoustic guitar is a great way to ...

My wife and I took the 15 night ocean to ocean Panama Canal cruise. The ship was extremely well maintained and extremely clean. The level at which the crew kept everything disinfected was amazing. Onboard we were very happy except for one show Nerdy Noah which was so bad it made you wonder if Princess actually reviewed his performance before hand. It was just terrible. We had three marvelous ...

I did this cruise once before through the Old Locks and this was even a better experience. The entire passage through the locks was narrated by an experienced commentator and was also on the TV in my room so it was easy to appreciate it. I also was happy with all the ports selected. My balcony cabin on the port side was lovely. Ports tours that I enjoyed were San Sebastian above Puerto ...

This was our 15th cruise, on 6th different brand. The last 4 on Viking, including a Viking River cruise. We love the personal touch that Viking gives their guest, we are not just another customer attitude. Ships are a little smaller which allows them to get into a 'working port'. They don't require a large cruise port terminal, so sometimes they will dock at a more private port where there are ...

This is LOOONG review with hundreds of pictures, so skip it if you don't like reading. I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to sail on this vessel when I did. I knew I would never be able to cruise on a ship this big at full capacity, willingly. So I jumped on the chance to sail on the Bliss on a 14 day cruise from Los Angeles to Miami. Despite some party poops saying the ship would be at ...

The Panama Canal transit cruise was a bucket list trip for us. Originally a 60th birthday present for my spouse - last year - it was delayed a year due to the pandemic and restart of cruising. We made our final payments in October, and then Omicron hit in mid-December - yikes. But, we decided to go ahead and go anyway as we figured it would be a safe way to travel during the pandemic - and we were ...

I've never been involved in cruise ship work nor management, but I have some experience in entertainment and hospitality, and a lot of ship operations experience. Based upon those and other experiences I think I know things that some people whose occupation is managing cruise ships don't realize. The income and lives of many people depend upon the continuity of cruise ship operations. If I ...

This is a review of the repositioning cruise of the Serenade of Seas sailing from Los Angeles to Miami through the Panama Canal. The Serenade started sailing again in the summer of 2021 in Alaska. The crew boarded in late June, quarantined on the ship and started sailing in Mid-July from Seattle to Alaska and back in one-week cruises. On September 25, all guests departed the ship and the ...

The Panama Canal was on our bucket list. Just the week before we set sail the Coronavirus scare began. We chose to go ahead with our plans and are so glad we did. There was a major computer glitch that delayed our boarding for 2-3 hours. Area was packed. No food or drink offered. Toilet facilities were out in the parking lot. Very uncomfortable. Once we boarded things went exceedingly ...

I’ve always wanted to sail to the Panama Canal. What a great trip this was. Despite the worlds fears of the corona virus our crew selflessly cared for our needs, making sure the trip was a success. Even though we did not get to go through the old Locke as planned due to the Panamanian government not giving us access until to late we were still able to go through the new lockes and enjoy them from ...
