Looks like you do not have a choice
You will be on the ship through the locks.

Enjoy the cruise

lourawls, it just depends on if you see an excursion that looks really interesting to you. I happen to think the best way to see the Canal is right from the comfort of your ship; but there are some interesting excursions also.

We did the canal last year. Don't bother doing an excursion, the view from the ship is great.

I'm with f-mattox and jerseygirl, the best way to experience the Canal is to stay on the ship. It is such an interesting trip that I wouldn't want to miss a minute of it by being on an excursion.
