Single cabins on ships are not all that common, while they can be found there are usually not that many of them and they go fast. IIRC HAL has some on some of their ships as well as NCL I believe have some... I don't know which ship/s however. Just an observation... the few times I have looked, the solo cabins are priced about the same as a passenger occupying a double cabin alone... sometimes even higher.

You are very welcome, I think you have selected a fantastic itinerary! Actually the only part of the Canal you will not transit is Gatun Locks, but I am sure there will be some sort of excursion that will let you to visit Gatun Locks which will be nearby where the ship is anchored after the first half of your partial transit.

Since you will be on the Island unless there is some sort unpredictable circumstance, the Island will use the old locks. Right now the transit slots available for the larger ships to use the new locks are in demand, so if a ship can use the old locks it will.
