    In raw numbers, the only port with a virus patient is Costa Rica with one. It's safer than staying in the US.
  2. Hello, Does anybody know of bus or van charters in Colon, Panama? At least 12 of us are looking to take the train from Panama City to Colon and need a ride to the cruise terminal. Thanks!
  3. Yes, They have about 5--6 long cars and one of which was the club car. The say that they always have room! I took the train previously (cruise), and we were in the club car. The mall also gives you a LOT of choices for food (3 food courts, each one on 2 levels) as well as restaurants outside of the mall. I also like the fact that the Wyndham starts the free breakfast at 6AM, so we have time to get served.

  4. DO NOT STAY IN COLON! It's a nasty place! We will be staying at the Wyndham Albrook which is attached to the largest mall in Latin America. The Holiday Inn Panama Canal is also nice. The reason we are staying there is to catch the 7AM Panama Canal Railway. It's a one hour trip and costs $25 per person. There will be at least a dozen of us on that train. Tickets are purchased at the station that morning.
  5. The Colon-Lisbon trip on the Monarch will be my 3rd cruise with Pullmantur and that ship. Our first cruise with them was the Bilbao to Colon as well. Was yours with us on the nearly EMPTY ship to Lisbon in 2016? It was also really schadenfreude when we couldn't stop in Aruba due to a little ol' CAT 4 HURRICANE MATTHEW! Boy, were those people PISSED! Well played Captain!
  6. That settles it. I will try it on the April 2020 Transatlantic cruise.
  7. I never really ate there. It was usually closed. None of the prices are extreme onboard. HOWEVER, one thing they do sell at the tapas bar is San Miguel 1516, a really good beer which is $2.
