Passage through the canal is an experience not soon to be forgotten. At the Pacific entrance, ships are holding position until their turn comes to enter the first lock. New construction of another lock system will help with clearing future backlogs. The system of locomotives used to draw ships through the canal system is fascinating to watch from either deck or balcony.

It was pretty cool 😎 but my sister owed herself when she saw a crocodile 🐊! That was so funny i had to laugh but, seriously Awesome Port for 2weeks cruises!

This was the highlight of the trip. Arriving at Balboa you see ships holding station until their time comes to enter the lock system. The locomotives towing your ship are a true feat of engineering as you are moved along the canal with only inches to spare on either side.

What can I say? This is an experience of extraordinary historical value and wonder. Our ship, the Panama Canal operations to include watching other ships pass through, the "mules," tug boats, waterways, dams, Bridges of the Americas, etc, all accumulates into a one of a kind experience; and the weather could not have been better. The Canal's Operations salute to our Captain Turner via the horn blasts for his last passage as a ship's captain was heart warming. I felt our captain was very special, especially after hearing his story and answering questions of the passengers during one of our scheduled events in the Main Stage.
