479 Colon (Cristobal) Cruise Reviews

Port is a work in progress, construction is moving along on the port for all the shops etc. People in my group who went on tours enjoyed them fully.

Did not debark, stayed on ship with my vision impaired mother. There was no point debarking, it was an industrial port with zero to see or do

Walked ashore, only made it a block away. 2 ladies together did not feel really safe so we bought a couple souvenirs and snuck behind the people hounding you to buy stuff and went back to the ship.

Only went as far as the safe zone within the port area, not much to see or do, most of the trips involved going back to the Panama Canal, of the 13 trips advertised none mentioned the word Colon.

Very poor city, not recommended to leave ship or take tour. Left ship to walk across the street to have lunch at Grand Cafe, visit souvenir shops and grocery store. Walked around the port and went back to ship.

Ship sent through 3 locks to Gatun Lake, turned around and went through the locks in the opposite direction to the Atlantic. Was an amazing experience. NCL provided an expert on board to provide history and explanations as we went through the locks. He was very knowledgeable and made the experience that much more meaningful. Read Less

We decided to walk around. Trash and graffiti everywhere. Other than the craft tent, I would never set foot in this city again.

Got off the ship and did a little shopping in the "mall" area near the ship. There seemed to be a lot of security visible so we did not daudle too long before getting back on the ship

We weren't enthusiastic about the excursions in Panama. The crossing of the canal was the highlight of the entire cruise. Nothing else was needed. We were enticed by the color roofed shopping area just off the ship. Venturing there we found a very small also disappointing shopping center. Although, there was a Panama Hat store. For fun, we went through the grocery store/market which we found more interesting. Maybe we're boring, or just foodies, it was fun to see the local produce and brands carried in the market. Spending less than $20, we picked up a bottle of sparkling. Being semi-novice cruisers, we were surprised to find ship security confiscate our wine and return it late on the last day of the cruise. No cheap drinks for cruisers! Read Less

Long, hot, boring, old ferry listing to the side, but we got to see the locks which is why we went. Lunch ok and lots of off brand beverages included.

this was good, there's a long walk at the end up to an observation tour, its worth the views, we didn't see any animals on on trial

Very disappointed here. We did not take an excursion, but hoped to shop a little. Our time was cut short and barely had time to go to one shop after walking a long way to get there. No a good area either.
