How things works when a ship arrives at a lock

It isn't as modern as one might think.

In the photo (taken from bridge cam of Crystal Serenity) below you notice the arrow at the end of the pier pointing right so the ship knows which lock to use.

The row boat brings out rope that is attached to the cables from the mules (lined up on pier left side) that will be used to pull/guide the ship through the locks.

In the distance is Miraflores Locks and Amsterdam and Seven Seas Mariner.
