Took me back to just over a year ago when we were on her.

 

In fact at this time last year we were going through cruise withdrawal.

 

thanks for sharing the pictures with us :):)

Thanks for sharing all these pictures and extra information. We've never done a Panama Canal cruise, but this sure makes it tempting.

Wow!!! Thanks so much for doing this!!! Panama City is fading from view at the moment. The back deck barbeque is about to begin. :-)

Looks like our weather was better on the W going thru the Canal. We had outstanding weather for the whole cruise. I hope it goes well for the Z too.

I am thrilled you enjoyed it! I rarely ever do a 'full coverage' like this unless I know someone is aboard from Cruise Critic doing a Live thread like yours. And THANK YOU for the reports your cruise. It's always a treat when anyone takes time from their actual cruise to write a daily commentary and answer questions. Well done!

 

P.S. Another railforum member I know is on their too. HI HopefulRailUser! Hope you are having a GREAT cruise!!!

Yes indeed, here I am, home now. Notice we shared the locks with the same crude oil ship each time. At times he was way above us, at other times down low. His crew of 10 or so enjoyed watching us and waving at the girls.

 

Thanks for the great series of photos.
