We are going in the Divina in December from Fort Lauderdale. One of the stops is Cristobal.

Has anyone taken the Gatun Locks Tour there? Private or through MSC? I've heard that you can either just take a tour to "view" the locks or take a small boat into the locks.

Any info appreciated.

Yes, we did it last year on RCI Jewel of the Seas cruise. We did a private your with "My friend Mario" and it was great. There are many reviews on the internet about this company and I would not hesitate to recommend them.
