Host Walt Posted February 17, 2009 #51 Share Posted February 17, 2009 Just a thought. The enjoyment of a Canal transit is best experienced on a public deck where you can see everything. Even if you are on the balcony of a port side cabin for the transit you will still miss all the action on the starboard side. In addition the photo ops are rather limited from a balcony especially when some of the best activity can be seen only from the aft. Finally, the Canal operators will assign locks based on demand and availability, not on a left/right protocol, so it can lead to disappointment if one chooses a cabin based on that aspect. Trivia time. When a ship is transiting from the Pacific Ocean to the Caribbean Sea is it heading east or west? North or south? Is the Panama City (Balboa/Pacific) entrance east or west of the Gatun (Caribbean) locks? Trivia question #2 - which city is longitudinally further west, Miami or Panama City?
