any good advice on where to go in Panama, Aruba, and Alcapulco and Huatulco
I am traveling solo, so would prefer to take the ships excursions. Thanks for
any help you can give a 73 year old great grandma!
You don't say what ship you're sailing on but I'd gather it's a TransCanal.
I'd highly recommend taking the Ocean-to-Ocean (Princess's name) or the Ferry (Celebrity's name) excursion. It's a wonderful way to experience the locks (different from going through them on a large ship). I do NOT recommend taking the train trip - big rip off IMO.
I've taken both of these as a single traveling alone. I've been to all of the other ports you mention but have never taken shore excursions in any of them.
I cruise the Emerald Princess, Eastern Caribbean on April 16, 2012
Thanks for the info.
I will be on the Sun Princess I can hardly wait! Sure hope there is plenty to do on Sea days as I like to keep busy and active. 16days is a long cruise, the longest I have been on.
I second CruiseNut's opinion on the train trip. (We enjoyed it together, so that part was nice) It is a nice old, renovated, train but at 70 mph you really don't see much and it's overpriced. The boat/ferry is a better way to go.
