Panama Canal - Spring 2015

Premium Traveler
Martha travel blog
We can't let a year go by without going on a cruise. Last fall a bad experience boarding the Allure of the Seas lead to a a 20% discount voucher from Royal Caribbean that needs to be used. And because we have Diamond status, we got an additional bribe. It's almost as if they are paying us to go!

It's been a long time since we've sailed through the Panama Canal and it will be in the news again soon as construction is ongoing to increase the size of the canal so the mega ships can pass through. It will be fun to revisit this most important strategic spot in the New World, which celebrated its 100th anniversary last year.. This is a repositioning cruise and the Jewel of the Seas will spend the summer in Alaska. Although some might find them boring, we look forward to the days at sea, the time to explore the ship and enjoy the views of the sea from our balcony.
