I used to love watching the ships go through the Canal as they would zoom the camera onto the back deck, balconies, and front of the ship where you could actually see people standing/waving. Unfortunately they don't seem to do that anymore. The camera never "zooms" so that you can actually see a clear shot of the paxs. Too bad, otherwise, we'd wave back at you.
ENJOY! It's a great trip. Oh, forgot to mention, better keep a hat on that bald head - the sun is brutal, even with sun tan lotion slathered on and I'd hate to see you suffering from sunburn!
