It seems like forever since I’ve posted but our family was away enjoying my FREE Panama Canal Cruise.
Over the next several days I’ll post some pictures of our experience and some exciting new additions to Stampin’ Up! products coming in July.
Here’s our ship – the Holland America Zuiderdam – docked off their private island (Half Moon Cay) in the Bahama. The sand was like Talcum powder and the colour of the ocean was like…well…Cool Caribean. LOL
This is the ship that went through the locks before us. You can see how the the ship is raised up to reach the level of the water in Gatun Lake which is 85 feet higher than the water level in the Caribbean. It takes 3 separate locks to raise the ships up and each ship this size displaces approx 85 million gallons of water. The price for our ship to go through the locks (return trip) was $200,000.
