Panama Canal Update

Earlier thiDSC_0256s month I was able to take OCEAN PRINCESS on its final voyage, 64-days around South America including a transit or the Panama Canal.  Lucky for us we followed our sister ship, ISLAND PRINCESS, through the Canal.

Next month I will be speaking to a convention group in Panama City, then joining them for an evening dinner at Miraflores Visitor Center and the next day we will all take the ferry tour through the Canal.  The Canal is still a busy place even as construction winds down and with 98% of the expansion completed, testing and trials of the new lock complexes begin.  Here’s the fascinating progress report from the Canal de Panama …

On the 64-day voyage of OCEAN PRINCESS I shared the lecture stage with Steve Noble, an excellent communicator and a superb photographer.  Here’s his time-lapse video of our journey through the Canal.  It took us over 9 hours but with Steve’s video you can catch a glimpse of a Canal transit in just 7 minutes!
