Cruising the Panama Canal.........
The next day, it had quit raining, the weather was nice, and this made cruising the Panama Canal very pleasant. Get up early, take your camera, and go to Deck 11 - you will see lots of cruisers taking lots of pictures.
At 8 o'clock, go for breakfast on Deck 5 - and get a table besides the ocean. You will have the best view........
After breakfast, if you have an interior cabin, go to Deck 4 and stake out your chair with a book, etc. It will be hot out, so you want to be in the shade. Deck 4 will be busy - lots of cruisers tried to grab the locks.
For lunch, take the elevater that comes out on Deck 10 right besides the spa and hot pool - there is a small lunch counter here that serves bread, salads, and good desserts. Take your lunch back to Deck 4 and enjoy the view.
You can look for alligators, although I did not see one.
The ocean by Panama City was very dirty.
