Default Re: Celebrity Celebrity 11 Day Cruise.. what excursions?

If it is your first trip to the vicinity of the Canal, your first priority should be to see it in some way. The rail journey is very nice, but any trip that will get you to some of the locks is good.

But note this: In midday, when the tours generally get to the locks, there's often not a lot of traffic through, and there's a chance you might not even get to see a ship transit the lock. This is a pity, but it shouldn't ruin your day. The locks look deceptively simple (especially if no ships are in them), so it is really important to read up on the Canal, why it was built, how it was built, at what cost (both human and financial), and how the locks work. I swear to you that I stood at a lock the other month, watched a huge freighter rise to the top as all that water flooded in, then move on. The woman next to me said, "That's it?"

Jeez Louise, lady! Why don't you go build something that'll do that?!!

So see the Canal, but do your homework. As in most things, knowledge and imagination are the keys to having fun.
