Panama Canal

March 25, 2011

Today is our passage through the Panama Canal. This is what we have waited for this entire cruise. We awoke at 5 am to be prepared to observe the passage through the canal.
We didn’t begin the entry until around 6 am. After taking photos and hearing the commentary from the bridge, we returned to our stateroom to continue to observe the passage from our balcony. The history of the building and the use of the canal is very interesting.
At 7:30 am our champagne breakfast was delivered to our stateroom.
 WOW! Most of you know I am all about food and presentation. 
This didn’t disappoint, it was fabulous and way too much food. It was so romantic sitting on our balcony, sipping champagne, and cruising quite slowly through the Panama Canal, with Mr. Romance.

The entire passage through the canal takes about 9 hours.
