I am going on my first cruise. I decided on the Grand Panama Canal leaving April 23, 2005. I was wondering if anyone has gone on this cruise and has anything to offer on tips for the first time cruiser. Also any activities or spots you consider "do not miss" at any port. Thanks.

What is your itinerary? Check out www.CaribbeanPortReviews.com for tons of ideas and reviews of each port you will visit. The Panama Canal is fascinating.

Let us Tkow if you have any specific questions.

Thanks I'll check it out. We are leaving Fort Lauderdale, Aruba, Panama Canal, Puerto Amador, Hualtuco, Puntareans, Acapulco, Cabo San Lucas and San Fran. We are going on the Regal Princess. Hey does anyone one how many drawers there are in a Oceanview Room, Double? Thanks JP

JP,Have not been on the Regal in many years. But, you will have a combo of drawer space, closet, and shelves. Usually both nightstands have 2 drawers & a open top shelf. The closet is along a wall with shelves above it, and space for shoes, luggage below. Or there is a combo of 3 closets that also have some shelves in them.Hope this helps.......

Has anyone been on the Coral Princess on a LA to Fort Lauderdale cruise via the Panama canal?

I have done the Canal Cruise many times, on different ships. Several times on the Coral. You will love it

We are just beginning to talk about a Panama Canal Cruise next April 2006. We are trying to decide between Royal Caribbean's Brilliance of the Seas or Princess' Coral Princess. Does anyone know how these ships compare? It's a celebration of my parents 50th wedding anniversary. I want this to be the best ever! Thanks

You can't go wrong either way. What is the age make-up of your group?

Thanks Tom. It looks like it will be my parents and my aunt - senior citizens and me (not a senior citizen!) No small kids.

I seem to find more reviews on the Coral Princess than Brilliance. I wanted to see if there were any significant differences between the two ships.

I'm looking forward to it
