Default Freedom - 8 day Western Caribbean

We are looking at this itinerary: Ft. Lauderdale - Colon - Port Limon - Couzumel - Ft. Lauderdale.

I don't want to assume that Freedom passes through the first lock of the canal and into Lake Gatun without asking. Does it?

No your ship will not be in the canal at all (but in the ocean), but you can take a shore excursion to see the Gatun locks or lake if you like!

The more I thought about it, I realized that a Conquest class ship would be too big for the locks

Ooh! I wanted to take this cruise, but hubby wanted to do something shorter and closer to home. Therefore, we are doing 5 nights out of Charleston on the Fantasy instead.

Oh well, any cruise is better than no cruise!
