While we're waiting eagerly for our April 2003 Dawn Princess cruise from Tahiti to Hawaii, we've been watching the DP webcam to see what "our ship" is experiencing. We got a kick of seeing the DP go through the Panama Canal as seen from both the DP webcam AND the Panama Canal webcam. We saved those photos from the webcams so if anybody would like copies of them, let me know! I've attached one shot in which the passengers on deck can be seen. We caught others that more clearly show that the ship is going through the canal lock.
5 months 3 days until 4/26 Dawn Princess sailing from Papeete
You're right that the DP webcam only shows the view of the sea or shore from the ship but we happened to find a panama canal webcam website that shows great views of ships going through the canal. Sometimes the camera zooms in on the ship decks. In fact, yesterday we caught the ship called THE WORLD as it went through and the camera zoomed in so close you could really clearly see the people on the deck. Here's the website..... http://www.pancanal.com/eng/index.html
