That's too bad. Panama is interesting to visit on land as well as by ship. I am surprised to read that they have decided not to dock at Cristobal since it would seem that Cristobal would be much easier to secure since it is in a tightly controlled area; Colon 2000 would be more difficult to secure it would seem IMO (much more open area).......
