Excellent cruise!!!

Review for Caribbean Princess to Panama Canal & Central America

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, ...

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 ...

First Viking Cruise - A+

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 ...

We wanted to go to the panama canal and we chose Viking because of the size of the ship (930 passengers) and no children. After a rocky start with a name screwup we were able to correct the problem on board the ship. i had a heel problem and every day 2x a day our room stewards brought ice paks for me. The food onboard was magnificent with everything labeled what it was and if it had meat ...

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

Review for Eurodam to Panama Canal & Central America

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
