This is the only way to really see the Panama Canal. This was our first cruise and it was fun. Loved the canal and all of the history. We prefer to travel independently. The arrival time of &am in Aruba on a Sunday was too early and the amount of time allowed (4.5 hrs) too little as was amount of time in Panama City. There was only 4 boats available for the one port where we had to be tendered into and then back which took too much time and ate into available time in that port, again Panama City. Food and entertainment was great.
