Sail Date: Feb 2022
This is designation of the specific Lock the ship was traversing.

This excellent educational trip was all that we expected from Viking and Then some.There were informational lectures not only on port excursions, but all about the panama canal politics and back room wheeling and dealing to allow the USA to build this engineering marvel. There were also pirates. The Viking cruise line took all the worry out of traveling during a pandemic by requiring daily testing, masks in all venues except while actively eating as well as preboarding intense scrutiny. I did not worry that someone could sneak through that process, make me Ill, and ruin my vacation. Where there might have been more independent exploration, they added intense educational opportunities with high-quality lectures by historians, scientist, and archeologists.because the trip was undercooked, they were over staffed resulting in plenty of personal attention in alll the venues, especially at mealtime, bars and housekeeping. There was no scrimping on the care provided.
