Review summary

My favorite part of the whole cruise was being in the Canal for two days. The first day sailing from the Atlantic to the Pacific. The second day we had a great day trip. Took the Dome car on the train back to the Atlantic. We saw the canal from a very different view point. Then got on a bus and drove over one of the "New" canal locks and saw some of the much larger tanker ships being pulled through the new locks by tug boats, one in the front and one in the back. Then riding back to the Pacific by bus. Three different views and with a great guide, Arthur, that was born and raise in Panama. Great, Great Cruise.
