Good but some disappointments

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Eurodam

10+ Cruises • Age 80s

We chose the 20 day repositioning cruise from Vancouver to Ft Lauderdale mainly for an opportunity to relax and be pampered..not as much for the ports of call en route. My husband has mobility issues and we didn’t expect to do many excursions ( I did 3 and he, 2). We welcomed days at sea. We chose a Signature suite because more spacious. The bathroom was lovely and we did like extra room ...

Very Disappointed

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Nieuw Amsterdam

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

After booking and paying for this cruise, we got an update stating that our first port of call had been cancelled then a second port of call had also been cancelled, the replacement on the first port had been changed to Seattle, we live in Vancouver BC, the second cancellation no substitute provided. While on the ship other ports had also been cancelled one due to weather one because of civil ...

Too little ship, too little adventure, too much money

Review for a Trans-Ocean Cruise on Seabourn Venture

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

This was our 5th Seabourn cruise and, unlike our most memorable cruise aboard the Quest to Antarctica with the late and much missed Captain Larsen, this voyage was a bust. Think that you’ll get close to Polar Bears and other marine mammals aboard Zodiacs? Think again! You’d be better off watching a David Attenborough film and saving yourself +$30k. We never got closer than 1000 meters to these ...

Poorest service ever on a cruise ship! I would give it less than 1 out of 5 if I could!

Review for a Mediterranean Cruise on Queen Elizabeth

Miss Fran
10+ Cruises • Age 50s

Chose this ship since it was going through the panama canal, across the atlantic and on to the mediterranean. Worst staff ever! most staff were incompetent at their jobs, especially reception and pursers office. Many staff were outright rude! we have never seen such widespread rudeness on a cruise ship. Room steward LOCKED ME OUT on my patio and then blamed the door (said it locked ...

Lovely Ship, Educational Experience

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Nieuw Amsterdam

SeniorTraveller023
10+ Cruises • Age 80s

Embarkation in Vancouver was fast and smooth. I was told it might be different the next day when four ships would be in port, rather than just this one. The vaguely Art Deco décor of the ship's public areas was lovely, and everything was always clean and fresh. The stair landings and corridors displayed beautiful art and sculptures, and there were many historic pictures and maps associated ...

Great Food & Service, Otherwise Merely Average

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Nieuw Amsterdam

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

Traversing the Panama Canal had always been a "bucket list" for my husband and me ages 67 and 72, respectively); being veteran HAL cruisers, we chose the NIEUW AMSTERDAM 21-day Panama Canal Cruise, 28 September to 19 October 2019, from Vancouver BC to Ft Lauderdale FL. We enjoyed a few days visiting Vancouver, BC before boarding the ship. Embarkation/disembarkation was fast and smooth. If there ...

Huge disappointment

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Island Princess

2-5 Cruises • Age 80s

We chose this cruise for the ports. Everything about our experience was negative. Princess cancelled our first sailing, which cost us $1200 in travel insurance and resulting expired flight credits. they wouldn't speak to us-actually told use to go through our travel agent-then wouldn't return his calls or emails. when we rebooked they gave us $50 on board credit. we couldn't board for 2 hours ...

Fabulous Panama Canal Adventure

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Emerald Princess

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

Overall, we recommend both the Emerald Princess and also this itinerary. We had a fabulous time and really enjoyed the trip! The Panama Canal is a "must see" for any traveler and Princess does it right! We had Traditional early dining at 5:15 in the Botticelli - it was great - very attentive staff. We also ate at SHARE (excellent) and Planks (Good). Pools were good but crowded, Movies under the ...

Modified California coast & Panama Canal

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Emerald Princess

M&Y
10+ Cruises • Age 80s

We were looking forward to Pacific coast stops but Princess revised the itinerary by four days to allow for additional time in dry dock. Vancouver embarkation was smooth as silk and the three day cruise to Los Angles was uneventful with two ok production shows and many onboard activities. Dined at Curtis Stone "Share" restaurant which was absolutely superb. Also dined at Steamers which was not ...

Reposition Cruise

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Nieuw Amsterdam

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

THE FOOD Pinnacle Grill and Tamarind are amazing, both in quality of food and service. Main dining room and buffet also had great service, but the food was hit or miss (which is to be expected for mass production). Also to be expected: the buffet area can be a madhouse at times and finding a table for larger groups can be a challenge. The main dining room was just the opposite: most table ...
