I assume you mean which side offers the best views of the canal. Personally I don't think it makes any difference and during the 8-9 hour transit its best to watch from the open decks or, if your lucky from the helicopter pad. Even if there was a best side it would rather depend which way you were transits the canal - west to east or east to west.

I entirely agree with ms Adams, but just to be pedantic, the Canal actually goes North to South, or South to North!

Sarf East to Norf WEST and exit Norf or Enter Sarf transit Norf West to Sarf East truly pedantic :-) Jimbo.

Would suggest port side west bound and starboard eastwards but out on opendeck best and flit between.

It also depends which of the two channels into the locks you go - I've been through it twice and on the Gatun side have gone through the locks on the left hand and right hand channel, coming back though have only done the left hand channel. As said above you get a great view on an open deck and even from your balcony you'll get to see something!

It is a very small place with a population is around 3500. It is an area situated at the base the Maritime Alps along the French Riviera.

Celebrity Edge Looks Incredible!

By Freddie Moser

Freddie Moser's blog

So yesterday afternoon I was lucky to attend an online preview of some of the accommodation and facilities aboard Celebrity Cruises most ambitious ship ever built; Celebrity Edge….I’ll be honest when I first heard the name of the ship, I thought it was an awful choice. However it’s since grown on me, and after watching the presentation, I now see the logic in the name Edge.You see this ship is first and foremost all about design and technology, so phrases like ‘Cutting...

Well I have just returned from my first ever visit to a River cruise ship. What a way to start!!! I visited the AmaPrima and Ama are rated the highest standard of ships in Europe according to the Berlitz guide.I flew to Amsterdam and we got picked up by a brand new AMA coach and transferred the short distance to the centre of city to meet the ship, the first eye opener for me was exactly how near to the centre of the town the ship was. If I am being really honest I really didn’t know w...
