The group members toured ports in Aruba, Columbia, Grand Cayman and Panama. ìThis was an amazing trip to experience the operations of the Panama Canal locks. Entering at sea level, our ship was lifted 85 feet through three separate locks before entering Gatun Lake. A few of our travelers rode the train in Panama, a few opted to take a small boat through the canal on the Pacific side, and another group stayed on board so they could see the locks up close. I am always happy to share their excitement.î — RUTH B.

We also had the opportunity to visit with local families and artisans, eat delectable regional cuisine and see stunning papyrus paintings.
