Miami to LA Panama Canal Cruise on NCL's The Pearl

In response to review, JusMe says ...

Longer cruises tend to get an older clientele as younger people are working and can not get 3 weeks off work.  Some people like the longer cruises,  I did the 14 night Transatlantic cruises and  would have liked to stay on the ship longer but then I like the days at sea.

If you post any photo's it would be nice to see some of the ports that you did and the canal.

We took the Panama on the Princess. We will do it on the Pearl next.

We want to do the Horse and Buggy again in Cartegena, but the other stops are iffy.I'm lookin forward to this trip. I will be going on a balcony as the last time I went through the canal we had to deal with crowds on deck. We would rather have Champagne and orange Juice on the Balcony that cold coffee on deck.

We will take the ship to Vancouver again.

Thanks for posting your first review here. I have been through the canal twice and will repeat it next year on HAL. The longer the cruise the older the passengers.

I've been through the Panama Canal twice. I like longer cruises. The majority of the cruisers were older, but there was a good inter-generational mix.

We are doing B2B Panama canal cruises this winter, one partial and two full transits. The total number of days for these three cruises is 45 which we can do because my husband is retired and I can work from just about anywhere that has an internet connection (even a bad one). We have seen longer cruises are the domain of the retired/semi-retired because of the issue of time-off-work.

I appreciate your review comments. Perhaps for your next review, consider being more specific as to why you selected a particular port rating. Understanding your rationale for selecting a rating is important because what matters to you might not be an issue for someone else.

Happy cruising!
