Just a few words around our Panama Trip. The stops along the way were quite enjoyable, but as with most of the Islands in this part of the world the first and the last thing that we see is the vendors selling their wares, and some of them do pressure the tourists quite harshly.
The Canal itself was an education. The Engineering that went into this project was phenomenal. The movement of the water from one gate to another went surprisingly quickly. For me, this trip was an education in transportation and how to move large objects quickly. The movements of the gates as they open and close simultaneously was something to watch.
The food was excellent, one of the cook's speciality was Prime Rib, perfect! The onboard entertainment was great as well and of course, there was the Casino, we even made a few dollars.
I recommend this cruise, it's a once in a lifetime experience.
