OUTSTANDING PANAMA CANAL CRUISE

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

Our Panama Canal cruise is the most outstanding cruise we've taken so far - we've been to Alaska, Caribbean, Mexican Rivera (a lot). This cruise vacation, as described by RCCL, is filled with boatloads of activities, wonderful adventures and unforgettable experiences. This is so true! We started in San Diego and our ports are Cabo San Lucas, Acapulco, Huatulco, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama Canal, ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This was our 6th cruise with RCCL and our first 14 day. We had to make the decision of the Panama Canal or the Mediterranean. Since my husband is a civil engineer, the Panama Canal won out. We flew into San Diego the day before the cruise and stayed at the Holiday Inn Harbor side. Great location across from the port and got to see the ship arrive the next morning from our balcony. We had read ...

Embarkation was very efficient. I love this ship and her sisters. Especially the lexan model as you exit the elevator and know instantly where the bow and stern are. Sea days were lovely, except for the consistent pop elevator music which seemed to be omnipresent. Which is ok, except that perhaps the volumne could be turned down and the tunes should be changed daily, otherwise, one begins to ...

This is absolutely the worst vacation I have ever had ruined by any cruise line. Here are some highlight of my two week nightmare: 1: Bed was atrocious. A fold up "cot" with a board on it! 2: Television is the same thing over and over..........and over. Movies are $11.95. 3: Food is terrible unless you eat in the "Pay For" dining rooms. 4: Did I mention the bedding is terrible? My back still ...

This was the seventh RCCL cruise for my wife and I and the second time we visited Hawaii. It was the second time we sailed with the Serenade of the Seas, the first being 39 days after its Christening. This was, also, the second time we left from San Diego. Arriving the day before we stayed at the Holiday Inn Downtown, about 4 blocks from the port. The hotel provided free pick up from the airport ...

We booked everything through Royal Caribbean and received our information packet about 2 weeks before we left. We arrived at the airport, only to discover our flight time had changed and was leaving in TEN minutes! Thankfully we made it, but prayed that wasn't a precursor of things to come. We were delayed in Chicago for almost an hour and therefore were late arriving to San Diego. There was no ...

My wife and I are 45 and 47; this was our 3rd cruise, the first on Royal Caribbean. Our first two cruises were on Celebrity. We booked this cruise 18 months prior to sailing mainly because the price was so low. We booked an inside stateroom on deck 3 which we found to our great surprise on our last cruise worked just fine. An inside cabin got us out of the cabin quicker in the morning giving us ...

This was my husband's and my third cruise averaging about 5 years apart, the last 2 being RCCL. It was our 25th wedding anniversary during our cruise. We drove down to San Diego the day before and embarkation was really uneventful. We had no problems, although others seemed to be yelling and complaining. I might have been oblivious to all the problems going on because I was so happy to be going on ...

Well it finally arrived & we were looking forward to a relaxing cruise.We are seniors & I still needed a cane for the long walks due to replacing 2 hips.My reason for telling about my hip replacements is specifically related to the night mare when we arrived at the pier to board the beautiful Serenade of the Seas. As it has been since 2006 the pier in San Diego is a disaster.There were people ...
