Extremely interesting - Thanks for the heads up!   I got a chuckle out of the security teams watching the Panama Canal crews that came on board.   ;D  Anywhere else they'd be called thieves!

I used to have a friend on Holland America who was a a Shore Excursions Manager who said they will take ANYTHING that isn't nailed down and try and sell it back on shore. The ship will not even provide lunch for them anymore because they took everything they could from the dinning room/lido. Now they have to provide their own lunch etc.

Sailing through the Panama is one of my dreams.
If all goes according to plan, that dream could come true in another 4 or 5 years time.
Meanwhile this Weblog was wonderful to read and helped understand a little about the trip through.
Thanks for posting it Phil.
