2018 HAL World Cruise
It doesn’t matter if a canal transit is your first or your 21st, it is always an impressive journey. It is, however, all about the locks! Entering a lock, watching the gates close, and then either rising of lowering, all reminds you that this was and remains a tremendous engineering accomplishment!
It takes a full day to make the crossing. The first time, as you’re having breakfast, you wonder what you’ll do with yourself all day long! And then you get caught up in trying to see it all. Before you know it, you’re out the other side and having dinner. It is ALWAYS a wonderful experience!

If ships have lifeboats; do SUVs have lifecars?
