Thanks SailorJack and Cousins for your candid remarks regarding the Panama Canal.
I like the 10 day SailorJack and will keep that one in mind; my purpose was to get the feel of the canal and it appears one would on this one. I read your transatlantic post and was in stitches! On our April 8th on Explorer we did two ports we have done before and we still enjoyed the islands and did something different.
Cousins, I will keep fmattox in mind after his Hawaii trip and will check the General Cruise Chat as well. Will also keep in mind not to do a Fl to Fl cruise.
