We are taking the 10 day Panama Canal Cruise in January on the Zuiderdam. Any information you have would be helpful.

Welcome to cruise-chat, and enjoy your short countdown! Is there anything specific you'd like to know? (Some examples: fixed-seating vs. as-you-wish dining, specialty restaurants, cabin types.) Will this be your first HAL cruise?

You can also check our Port Chat boards for information on your ports of call.

We have taken 4 cruises, 2 of which were with HAL. We did not take an excursion at Half Moon Cay and I am wondering what we can do if we just tender in? In Aruba we took the Town & Countryside; Curacao - Willemstad Trolly Train;Panama Canal - "The shaping of Panama to Cristobal" and in Costa Rica - The Tortuguero Canals. Hope we have made good choices.

Went on the 10 day Panama cruise on the Volendam. Just make sure that you are up before dawn to watch the ship going through the canal locks. Some people still had their bathrobes on.

At Half Moon Cay, just taking a stroll along beach and people watching is half the fun. Renting a clam shell helps keep the sun off. Enjoy the beach luncheon as well. Time goes by fast.
