Default Panama Canal

Would like to hear from those that have taken this Holland America 21 day cruise Round trip from Los Angeles, What are the key points to see and things to do while in the different ports:

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Acapulco, Mexico
Huatulco, Mexico
Puerto Chiapas, Mexico
Panama Canal (Balboa, Gutan Lake)
Puerto Caldera, Costa Rica
Corinto, Nicaraqua
Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala
Mazatlan, Mexico

We would also like to know if you can take a tender into Panama seeing that it will be in Gatun Lake from 2:00pm til 9:00am the next day, by looking at the web site it shows a tender is required but they show no excursions for the December cruise.

Thank you

Are you going on the AMSTERDAM, December 2nd?

I have never seen an itinerary like that. If there were any excursions while you were in Gatun Lake, they would be listed by now.

Call Ship's Services 1-800-541-1576 or Shorex 1-888-425-9376. They can help you.

I have never seen/heard of a ship staying that long (overnight) in Gatun Lake.

Are you going on the AMSTERDAM, December 2nd? YES, December 2nd. through December 23rd. leaving from LA.

I have never seen an itinerary like that. If there were any excursions while you were in Gatun Lake, they would be listed by now.

Call Ship's Services 1-800-541-1576 or Shorex 1-888-425-9376. They can help you. Contacted both HAL and Shore excursions and they have not finalized the excursions for this December cruise
.
I have never seen/heard of a ship staying that long (overnight) in Gatun Lake. The itinerary shows entering Panama Canal at 5am and Gutan Lake at 2pm. Depart Gutan Lake 9am next day and exit panama canal at 7pm.
