Royal Caribbean Panama Canal & Central America Cruise Reviews

Wake view after passing under the Sunshine Skyway bridge in Tampa. That’s the Brilliance coming under the bridge.
The Space X landing platform was being towed out to sea. Visible from the port side.

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 ...

We chose this cruise for the destinations and the time of year we had to skip the Panama stop because the canal was not dredged on time and that was one of the main reasons I wanted to go on this trip because I did missionary work on the kuna Indians for 30 years and about halfway into the cruise I started feeling very sick and had severe diarrhea and cramping and nausea and headache and and the ...

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 ...

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 ...

The only good thing about this cruise is the excellent crew it has. Room service was exceptional. All crew members were friendly and and did their work with an excellent attitude. Otherwise the ship did not offer free WiFi, and the cost if was $19.99 per day. If you take your cellphone and use it on, or near the ship, the cost per call is $5.99 per minute. At no time was this mentioned by ...

I'm loyal to Royal and wanted to do a Panama Canal cruise. I have been on about 40 cruises with Royal and this was by far the worst cruise I've been on. 1) Embarkation was delayed due to an unknown issue and the communication was non existent. The disembarkation from the ship was fine but waiting for an hour for our luggage to arrive at the airport was frustration 2) The ship is old but in ...

We chose this cruise because the timing was good, it ended up in LA where we could drive home to Phoenix and we needed 15 days to make Diamond level. We arrived in Fort Lauderdale 2 days ahead hoping to do some sightseeing but a cloudburst stuck with us for much of the 48 hours until we boarded which dampened our plans. We were glad we were staying in an Embassy Suites and had the extra room while ...

We chose this 16 day cruise for it’s itinerary, value and breadth of activities. The ship was a manageable size, offered plentiful activities and many meal and eating options. The cruise directors and activities staff provided many entertainment and participant activities. We were amazed at the friendly and helpful staff. Each staff member went out of their way to make sure we had the ...

Never ever been treated like second class citizen since I have been cruising for over 27 years with this pathetic company. It does not matter what happens on this ship as nobody cares and nobody listens. The noise, food, officers were pathetic and overall I wish people would avoid this company like the plague. An officer actually snatched a spoon out of my hand and I wish I would have handled my ...
