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 ...

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, ...

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 ...

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 ...

A good Panama Canal cruise, but some misses along the way

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

We came back to HAL after a five year absence when they offered a great casino rate for a Panama Canal cruise which had been on our "someday" list for a long time. Eurodam fits through the old locks on the canal, which makes for a more interesting transit. We kicked in for the Club Orange to let us choose one of the CQ cabins in front on deck 10 instead of the guarantee oceanview in the base ...

Divina Exceeded Expectations -- 12 Night Panama Cruise

Review for MSC Divina to Panama Canal & Central America

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

First of all, I'll say what Divina is not. It is certainly NOT the prettiest or flashiest ship I've ever sailed on. It does NOT have the huge WOW factor that so many of today's mega-ships provide. It is NOT the freshest most up-to-datest vessel afloat, and in fact, much of the ship looks like it is somewhat past ready for a visit to dry dock, a fact especially noticeable in hallways and ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We chose this 17 day cruise because we wanted to go through the Panama Canal. We took a Holland America sponsored Zip Line tour in Costa Rica(41) of us. A torrential rain was predicted, but we were not made aware nor was the tour canceled.Dangerous rain including lightening dumped on us during the Zip Line. Of course, we were attached to metal lines with metal equipment. There was a flood of the ...

what a disappointment

Review for Eurodam to Panama Canal & Central America

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Holland America use to have the best service and food that you could want. It has been downgraded so much it is sad. Now only the service remains a plus. That is by the crew, not necessarily the officers. The food is mediocre, the organization is lacking and just about everything has been downgraded. I am a 4 star mariner and have happily cruised many times with Holland America. It is sad to ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

As a three-star Mariner, I was really looking forward to my first post-Covid journey ... 20 days, from Vancouver BC through the Panama Canal to Fort Lauderdale ...but this is the lowest rating I have ever given a HAL cruise. The Eurodam is a beautiful, subdued-toned traditional cruise ship, with comfortably furnished public areas and lounges : the garish neon reserved for the casino. There are ...
