We will be on the Crystal Symphony in November traveling through the Panama Canal, ending up in Costa Rica. Lots of guys at my hubby's office think we're CRAZY to go through the canal. They say it's unsafe! Anyone heard anything about safety. BTW, we are not stopping in Panama - but we will do a full transit. Please advise. I can't believe Crystal Cruise Lines or any one else for that matter, would run a cruise in unsafe territory.
