Special Alert - Panama Canal
Cruise the Panama Canal with us? Click here. We are scheduled to enter the first lock at 7:30 AM EST Friday Jan 25, and be through about nine hours later.
Our ship has three webcams, facing straight and left and right.
Alternatively the canal has its own webcams in case you want to see us moving along.
I was deluged with facts and figures all day about the canal. It’s big, took lots of lives, time and money and moves lots of water and big boats. I will have forgotten all the numbers by tomorrow so I won't bore you.
However the one item that will stick with me is that in parts of Panama itself, the sun rises in the Pacific and sets over the Atlantic Ocean. Now that's cool.
