Maybe he was crew on a freighter. Either way, it's a great journey so hope you manage to do it (in the daylight).

The canal works 24hours but cruiseships plan their trips to go through during daylight hours....Brian.

Hi , we have just came back from a round trip of Panama canal from Fort Lauderdale on Island Princess. You will need to get up early as we arrived at the locks about 6.00am in the dark which was a spectacular sight, but by the time we finished going through Gatun locks it was broad daylight. A wonderful experience.

Www.webcamgalore.com - If you look at these web cams of the Panama Canal, you'll see that most cruise ships are booked to go through the canal in daylight, and there's often crowds of people in the viewing areas, watching them. It costs a great deal for the cruise line to book these cruises, and the Panamanians offer control of web cams for people watching relatives going through- for a price. I doubt a cruise line would go for a night time passage- people go for the daytime experience.- Jo.

We sailed through the Panama Canal from Pacific to Atlantic last October. The day started early and in brilliant sunshine, but when we had negotiated the first locks, the clouds rolled in and it started to rain. We retreated to our balcony, until that too was awash. I have never seen rain like it or experienced such a thunder storm. However it was over in half an hour and the sun was shining on the rain forest and the trees were steaming. I would not have missed it for the world. It is not called the 'rain forest' for nothing. Judith.

Royal Caribbean. Something for...

By Dean Michaelides

Every single year its seems like more and more ships are being released. 3-6 star 300 passengers to 6000 passengers there are hundreds of cruises out there now. My question is can anyone beat Royal Caribbean and do they have a ship for every one?I recently had a training with a Royal Caribbean rep and she advised there aim would be for cruise customers never to look elsewhere when it comes to cruising. A bit like Dubai for Holidays. There idea it to have such a wide range within there fleet f...
