6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

My husband and I traveled to the Panama Canal cruise w/ Princess. I am in a wheelchair and require a wheelchair accessible cabin and I would like to have access to all or most of the ship as other passengers do. We had a fantastic time!!! This is my 10th cruise, husbands 3rd. The food at the specialty restaurants were great and tasty. The dining room was good but wished it had a couple of more ...

I'd rate it a 5 star but a few very minor points prohibited me from doing so. I should start off by saying I ran slot department on a Costa cruise ship for nearly 2 years in the late 1980's. I've been on several other ships for a few hours here and there as a guest, so I may not have a lot of experience as a Passenger, but I know a bad ship from a good one. This was my third cruise as a ...

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

We chose this cruise for a couple of reasons - ports of call including the Panama Canal and second the price was amazing. NCL service is absolutely TOP NOTCH in all aspects of delivery. Everyone was polite, helpful, kind and courteous. The Jewel is a great ship - just the right size - not too big/not too small. The refurbishment is NICE. Ports of call included Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta, ...

Disapointing, not client focused and oversaling

Review for Seabourn Quest to Panama Canal & Central America

From a global point of view, we think that Silversea is better than Seabourn and gives much more value for money. Positive side: The ship is modern, we liked very much the suite, and there are very nice places such as the Seabourn square, very cosy, very comfortable, as well as the observation lounge. The service was generally very kind and willing to satisfy our needs, which is most ...

We went on an anniversary cruise for our 18th wedding anniversary. My bride's luggage was promptly lost on the ship. After five days of battling with staff it was placed in our cabin, The staff fought me with tooth and nail because it could not have been Carnivals fault. The cabin was over air conditioned and had to be adjusted by staff six different times. Food on the ship is not up to the ...

Visiting the Panama Canal was on my bucket list. Everything about the 11 days was an experience. The food at all of the venues I visited was superb. The chefs always presented such delicious fare; everything from shrimp, lamb, crab, burgers, The entertainment was varied and delightful. I attended all 3 different performances of the singers, who were excellent. The Viking band was talented, as ...

Had none of the things we didn't want (casinos, children, smoking, art sales), and the best thing is Viking does ...

Great Itinerary and Outstanding Shore Excursions

Review for Adventure of the Seas to Panama Canal & Central America

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

This is the longest cruise my wife and I have done, and we weren't disappointed. Yes, Adventure is an older ship and needs a refurb, but this itinerary and the ship's staff made this a vacation of a lifetime. We've been cruising since 2003 on Royal, Princess, and Celebrity, but Cartagena, Colon, and Puerto Limon were all first-time ports for us. We booked a city tour of Cartagena through Royal ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We chose Viking based on ship size and destination. The Viking Star was beautifully appointed and the cruise staff extremely helpful and professional. We enjoyed every moment on board - every communal deck offered wonderful views, which we took full advantage of. It was nice to have the ability to go to a quiet place and read a book or enjoy coffee and pastries or be amongst a group of people to ...

Disappointing 21 days

Review for Norwegian Encore to Panama Canal & Central America

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

We had planned this cruise for 2 years, which had to be rescheduled due to Covid concerns. This was our second time on Norwegian and certainly our last. The fact that it was a 21 day cruise was definitely a factor in our disappointment since NCL had basically the same shows (actually two good ones, Kinky Boots and Choir of Men) that they ran in the first week, changed some of the cast, and then ...
