Panc Canal cruise suggestions?

We are sailing the Norwegian Pearl from New Orleans to Seattle in April. Does anyone have any "not to miss" excursions to suggest?

The suggestion I would make is to make sure your on deck for the majority of the transit through the canal it is something worth seeing. Enjoy your cruise.

Most everyone heads to the bow for viewing, a huge crowd. I went to the stern and it was a great view and there were about 6 of us, you can see the gates close just like you can see the gates open at the bow

Thank you! That's a great tip.

Secure your viewing seat EARLY. We approached the Canal before 5am and when got up at 4:30, all the good seats were gone!
