Zuiderdam

January 2018 - Zuiderdam to Caribbean

Excellent Way to See the Panama Canal

While the traditional Panama Canal cruise enters and exits in the same day, doing a partial transit as this ship did is a much better way to actually see Panama. When you do the full transit, you spend the entire day just getting through the canal and do not get to see Panama. This itinerary allowed us to see some of Panama and the canal up close.

Westerdam

March 2016 - Westerdam to Panama Canal, Central America

Great Panama Cruise

Great cruise.  21 days from Florida to San Diego allows the ability to stop at a greater number of ports, and each was small and interesting with access to great history, culture, and wildlife.  The ship had all the amenities one needs and the staff was fantastic, meeting our every expectation.

TimfromReno's Tips

Willemstad, Curacao - We took a private tour of the island and got to see just about everything in an 8-hour day. Excellent beaches on the north-west side,
Cartagena, Colombia - Took a taxi to old town and just walked about. Architecture was phenomenal, with the old building surrounded by the ancient wall. Many shops, friendly people.
Puerto Limon, Costa Rica - Jaguar Research Center was an excellent stop to see up close the rehabilitation of local wildlife.
Enter Panama Canal At Cristobal - Everyone needs to see the Panama Canal at some point in their life. It is an amazing accomplishment, especially when you realize it was created more than 100 years ago and remains fundamentally unchanged since.
Colon, Panama - We went on a monkey island tour and saw monkeys and birds. We also got to traverse part of the canal in a very small boat, while giant tankers and mega-ships floated by right next to us.
Oranjestad, Aruba - Excellent for shopping, lots of stuff to do right off the port (drinks, eats, shopping). Island itself is a bit dry and desolate, but some good beaches.
Zuiderdam Zuiderdam - Nice size ship at about 1900 passengers - big enough to have everything you would need (bars, restaurants, entertainment), but not so big as to feel overwhelming.
Westerdam Westerdam - Great sized ship with just under 2000 passengers, gives you a small ship feel but with all the amenities you could want.
