Panama Canal Cruise

Mar 13th, 2020

This is unpreventable, but the number of aged and handicapped passengers (wheel chairs, canes, obese people on walkers) was overwhelming. While it didn't stop my roommate and I, who are more mobile and a bit younger, it is worth remembering for future cruises. Perhaps this is the month (February) and the cruise (Panama Canal) that attracts less active people who don't plan to get off the ship .... and just like the sailing experience. My other HAL cruises have not been this way at all. I wonder if HAL has statistics on this......?

Quick getaway

Mar 10th, 2020

We do this cruise at least once a year just to go to lunch at some favorite spots. The walking tours are a good way to see the cities, if you are a first timer. We cruise here so much, that we prefer to taxi around, except in Mazatlan. There, a group of expats are on hand to give directions and provide info. We “walk the blue line”, an actual painted line down the middle of the streets, to our lunch destination. A very pleasant and safe amble through the neighborhood.

Great relaxing cruise!

Mar 10th, 2020

We booked the cruise as we were looking for an easy get away. We live about 25 miles from San Diego port so made it very easy. Nice not to have to get on a plane. Relaxing

All Irish Star Mexican Riviera Cruise

Mar 3rd, 2020

As this was a themed cruise with very talented entertainers from Ireland, this would not be the usual Holland America Mexican Riviera cruise. The crew all worked very hard keeping us all fed and watered.

Fascinating Panama Canal

Feb 10th, 2020

The cruise was fabulous, more sea days than we like but the ports we visited were good. Food was good, entertainment outstanding. HAL is very invested in their guests well being and pleasure. When I entered feedback in the comment cards in our room for what I liked and don’t like, I received a call from staff to discuss my suggestions. All staff were excellent.
