Review Summary

this is a cruise that should be on everyone's bucket list.  the panama canal is clearly one of the top engineering feats in the world and so see it first hand is something that everyone should consider doing.  and do a full transit, as after seeing a partial transit by another cruise line, i don't feel you can get a true sense of the magnitude of of this project.  and then to see the new canal being built next to the original, almost is beyond words.

Ship Tip

if you do the full transit on this ship, it is worth the extra money to purchase a lounge chair at the rear of the ship, check it out.
