We are sailing out Sunday Sept. 21st on NCL Pearl -- Panama Canal cruise. We know it will be a nice slow cruise but we plan on having a good time. Is there any last minute info or help on things to do in the ports.

Hi Bentnail, welcome to Cruise-Chat. I've not been to the canal, but have been in quite a few ports in the Caribbean. Was there any port in particular that you were interested in? I believe Aruba will be one of your stops, but am not sure. We went to Palm Beach the last time we were there, it was a nice beach with ammenities, no snorkeling, but we did get to see a bit of the island as well. We've also done some good snorkeling trips there as well. Curacao is good for shopping, if that is one of your stops. We've also done a good snorkel there. The tour of the Curacao factory had yummy samples. I'm sure there are some on board that have done your itinerary, so hopefully they can help you more. Best wishes for a fantastic cruise, and once again, welcome aboard!

Thanks for the info, there wasn't any port in particular never been on the east side of Panama. The ports are Cartagena, Colombia
Oranjestad, Aruba and Willemstad, Curacao.
The 3 Mexican ports we have been to except the one that was added Huatulco, Mexico. I have looked them up but that doesn't tell me the interesting spots like the older areas so anything would be helpful.
Thanks
D

Thanks Bob

I have seen her from the dock in Seattle and now I will see the dock from her come Sunday and a lot more docks before we get to Miami.

Sounds like a wonderful cruise!

As you're doing a full transit, you might find this article helpful.

Bon voyage... and I look forward to the details when you return.
