Has anyone cruised the 10 day Panama Canal Cruise that includes Columbia & Coasta Rica?

Thinking about the Coral Princess Cruise out of FLL on January 7th that goes through canal, Aruba, Columbia, Colon Panama, Costa Rica, Jamaica.  Anybody ever do this route?

No, but it sounds wonderful. Go for it.

Did the Island Princess from Florida to Vancouver B.C.

Take the cruise---you will not be disappointed.

The only place we did not stop that you mentioned was Jamaica. but all the rest were great.

The Panama Canal--wonderous.

Take this cruise.

we are waiting to do it again.

In December we are sailing the 15 days from Long beach to Ft. Lauderdale, that includes some of those ports. Sorry I can't help you out until then.... Go for it!

I was looking at a panama canal cruise too, but RCI.

Princess 3 for Free Offer is a good deal to scope out ...

Done and Done ...booked it!

Never did a Panama Canal cruise that stopped in Colombia and Jamaica.

We took the Island Princess PC cruise last winter (2016). All ports were included except Jamaica... did not have that stop on either of our itineraries (just as well, we do not get off the ship in Jamaica). FL to LA to FL.

- Be very mindful if you opt to venture out in Colombia. Take a ship excursion if you want to see more with less personal risk. Book that port's excursion early.

- Panama -> Gatun Lake excursion was a lot of fun. Be prepared that the buses used to transport from ship to excursion boat are actually mini-buses and extremely cramped for average-sized American and European cruises.

- Costa Rica -> if coffee is your thang, go see a plantation. We did that in Guatemala but I know there was a similar excursion in CR.

Happy sails!

We have done the full transit of the Panama Canal on HAL three times but we never stopped in Jamaica. We did it eastbound and westbound. We will do it again in 2018. We will stop in Georgetown, Cayman Island before going through the Panama Canal on that trip.

Doing this cruise on Princess Jan 17th but still baffled by ports like Colon Panama and Cartegena Columbia ... Any more input out there
