April 2016 - Norwegian Pearl to Panama Canal, Central America
On top of my wife's must do list was a trip to the Panama Canal, so we booked this trip 11 months out. We had a fantastic time with a sensational crew. Great ports of call, super food, great cabin and so many great things to do. We met so many super people on board, we left with so many new friends from around the USA. Had so many great meals, especially the specialty eateries - loved the steakhouse and the Brazilian one. Having been stationed in Panama, I was eager to visit it - so we took the former Canal Zone and former US military installations - so many memories......there were five of us who use to be stationed in Panama - we had fun identifying our old offices, homes, and barracks. Amazing to see four lane freeway has replaced the old two lane jungle growing right up to the pavement road. Costa Rican tour was super too, it was a holiday there, so little traffic, but took bus, train, and boat.
