Default Panama Canal Cruise

HI Looking for a Panama Canal Cruise for the spring of 2006. Any chance of a CM cruise doing the Canal then?

I don't know about the CM but we are planning to cruise the Panama Canal in March of '06. Do you want to talk about it? Maybe we could go together?
E mail me with your private address if so.

Laura...

The answer is YES. We are looking at a repositioning cruise spring 06.. from Florida, to the west coast.

There seems to be alot of people interested, and I think it would be a great cruise for CM to do.

The rest of you like the idea?? Speak up !

Wow Kuki what a fast response. I had a friend asking me about one. Intorduced her to cruising 2 years ago (Carnival Spirit) and she is hooked. Will be watching for the details. Thank you for the prompt response.

We are definately waiting to see what you come up with Kuki. Jake has wanted to do the canal for quite a while. Hope it's Princess, RCI or Celebrity. :-)

Yes Kuki,
Count us in. Although, it is very expensive to fly home to Florida from the west coast.
We'll see???
We have other friends that might go too.
Keep me posted.

If its a repositioning and very late Spring, I might consider it! Done the canal, twice, San Juan/LA then LA/San Juan but I enjoy the respositionings because usually lots of sea days! The one I did had 5 ports, 8 sea days, woohoo!!!

Usually mid-April, I think but may vary by cruise line. It's when they need to get ships to the west coast for the beginning of the Alaska season!

Thanks to a suggestion from Susie we have our hooks into one that's looking good.

Just have to check a few things, and get some bids... but looks like a May 03/-6 Coral Princess.. Ft Lauderdale to San Fran.. 15 nights.. is looking good.

Think there's even going to be an option for an extra 2 nights to go all the way up to Vancouver, for those who want to.

Had looked at doing one on HAL, but they presently are outrageously expensive.

Hi Kuki

Lets look into May 6 on the Coral P.
What about the price?

Carole...

I'm hoping to put it out for bids, and have it finalized by the end of next week. As soon as it's finalized, I'll post pricing, and amenities.

Wow, Kuki, you are quick! I may twist April's arm really hard for this one, if It's a go! :-)
Are you listening, April???

I saw something for Celebrity but the price was higher than Princess!
