Our Canal Cruise

Sail Date: September 02, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The ship was not as clean as expected. They were performing construction and renovations during the cruise and sea days which obstructed path of travel. The ship did not cater to elderly and disabled travelers. The ship was older and seemed less stable and more rocky at sea than expected.

Pros: The ship was smaller

Cons: The ship was not as clean and it smelled of sewage and ciggarete smoke!

Recommends Rhapsody of the Seas? No.

Acapulco, Mexico
We swam with the dolfins and it was so great! the price was well worth it and the staff was great! we had time to shop after we got back and we got lots of great deals in the flea market! it was our best shopping place for souveniers.
Don't Miss: shopping in the government flea market
Huatulco, Mexico
We snorkeled and it was a very nice port. It was very pretty and safe.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
We did shopping in the flea makret on our own and we got some goodies. It was a short stop and we only had a little time with the tendering boats taking so long.
Fuerte Amador, Panama
The canal zone was AWESOME! we loved it. We were not allowed to get off the ship because of the line through the canal zone, but the trip along the calal and the lake was so good we loved it! it was wonderful and the entire day was great!
Don't Miss: stay on the ship!

Cartagena, Colombia
It did not seem safe to me. We had armed guards on our snorkeling excursion, but the tour guide kept making references about "making it back in one piece" and making it back before midnight! the shopping was horrible and the people were very pushy and the emeralds were not a good deal at all! i felt very uneasy there!
Don't Miss: nothing!
