For those who have not been through at night just look at what you have missed:D
Seriously though I probably would not recommend it and our's was unscheduled. The final shot is leaving Gatun Locks and heading out into the Caribbean. Time - 01.30:eek:
Cheers. Paul

What happened? Why an unscheduled trip through the canal?

The transit was scheduled but it was meant to be daylight. We never received a satisfactory answer as to why it got altered and, as you can imagine, there were a lot of unhappy cruisers. We ended up moored off Panama City until something like 18.30.
Since the ship was not full scuttlebut put it down to an unwillingness to pay top dollar. Holland America obviously were since we watched Volendam coming out.
Cheers. Paul
