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!

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!

I find it hard to believe that given the amount of family friendly cruise options around these days, all of which include swimming pools, some even large scale on board water parks that it’s not compulsory for cruise companies to employ lifeguards, especially when you consider some of the recent tragedies that have occurred.Norwegian Cruise Line have announced that it will be joining Royal Caribbean and Disney Cruise Lines in employing certified lifeguards at all of the family pools acr...
