We are cruising to the Carribean through the Panama Canal on Brillance of the Sea, 3/24/08 and my husband and I have passports, however, it did not occur to me, until today, that visas may be required to visit the port cities.
Please let me know if you obtained visas for the port visits and tours in countries where you left the ship. Thanks for the advice.
In Panama or in Caribbean ports you won't need a visa. We have on 7 cruises in the Caribbean and never needed visas.
