Kathy & I recently returned from a 15-night cruise through the Panama Canal on the Pacific Princess. It was a terrific cruise, and at only 600 +/- passengers this ship was a welcome relief from the 6000+ passenger behemoth we sailed on in February. But like bottles of wine we’ve never had a bad cruise, so there are always great things to experience regardless!
The highlight of our cruise, which took us from Fort Lauderdale, FL to Los Angeles, CA, was of course a full transit of the Panama Canal. These photos are just a sample of the ones I took during this event. I will add more photos and commentary as I get through the 3000+ photos I took! But we’re leaving soon for another quick trip and I’m planning to leave the computer at home, so they will need to wait until we get back.

One of my parents most impressive cruises was through the Panama Canal. My dad still talks about it.
The pictures don’t really do justice to the experience, but it was very impressive. What I didn’t mention in my post is that we made the transit in unusually fast time. We were first in line for the “old” canal and didn’t have to wait in line for any of the locks to clear. While it made for a quicker trip there wasn’t as much opportunity to capture the little details.
