Day 12 on the Celebrity Millennium Cruise - Colon, Panama

Legacy Family Tree has about 250 persons on this cruise (out of about 2,100 passengers) which will leave San Diego and head for Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia and we'll end up in Fort Lauderdale on 7 October.  You can see more information about the cruise at

It's Thursday, 3 October, so we will dock in Colon, Panama at 6 a.m.according to the cruise schedule.

The cruise ship offers a number of excursions on shore.  Since this is a new place for us, we'll probably have an excursion.  We have to keep it mild or moderate activity because Linda can't walk very far or fast these days.  The tours that we might take include:

*  Eco Cruise on Gatun Lake and Locks - Cruise the channels, rivers and bays that make up this unique ecosystem. (4 hours)

*  Gamboa Rain Forest Aerial Tram - an aerial excursion through the rain forest canopy to discover plants, birds and animals whichl ive in the tree tops. (5 hours)

*  Grand Tour of Panama - Watch the Panama canal in action, see flora and fauna and visit the Embera Indian village.  (5 hours)

*  Monkey Watch - bus ride, boat ride on the Canal, wildlife habitat, and bus ride back. (5 hours)

*  Several others are 8 to 9 hours long and are more expensive.

We leave Colon at 4 p.m. on our way to Cartagena, Colombia on Friday.

Sounds like a great cruise. My husband & I will be sailing to Panama on Princess cruises in a couple weeks.
