On the Amazon River part were most of the "scenes" jungle or was it shanties? Have you been thru the Panama canal? We've been twice and are wondering if the beauty (Gatun lake) of the amazon is similar? Have you been on other Pacific Princess cruises, maybe we've cruised with you! We were on the Pacific 2007 Hawaii/Tahiti round trip. Thanks for the info! (your getting as far as the flea market - thats what I like to do, but not my husbad !
