Also, even though it has a 2011 copyright, it is not up-to-date.

We are going on our second Panama Canal cruise and bought this guide for our trip along with two other books. We really liked this book because it not only provided an excellent and detailed history of the construction of the canal, backed up with maps and archival images, but really gave you a feel for the ports we are visiting before and after the cruise. There is a large pull-out map of Panama Canal at the back of the book which shows in detail the locks and, with notation, explains sights along the way. Walking tour maps of each port showing attractions, color photography and great shore excursion information make this book a valuable addition to our short list of items to pack. Highly recommended.

Now having gone through the canal, I have can verifying just how accurate the book is. It is fairly accurate, but things are moving fast and no book is able to keep up with every detail. I do believe it is an excellent reference for anyone going on a Canal cruise. It is comprehensive and detailed both as to the actual layout of the canal and its history. One of the best parts of the book is a pull out map of the canal. I carried this with me on the trip and it came in handy during the passage -especially in traveling though the cut. THe map made spotting landmarks easy.

Also knowing where things are on the canal is important if you want to capture all of the detail. FOr example, the Gatun dam is a lot bigger than I imagined, but without the map, it would have been easy to miss.

In addition, she covers many (if not all) of the ports commonly visited on a canal cruise.

Finally, I was impressed by the sections covering the geology and weather system of the area.

Overall, this is a must have book for the region.

I found the book to be the best available to give you information on this cruise. The sections on the Panama Canal were very interesting, including the building of the Panama Canal. This book also reviews ports that are visited by cruise ships from the eastern US coast to the western US coast, which I didn't realize when I purchased the book. I found some of those chapters helpful, but somewhat outdated. The sections on the Panama Canal were very interesting, including the fold out map, which is very handy when you cruise through the canal.

This book is more a book on the Caribbean than a book on the Canal. Also, even though it has a 2011 copyright, it is not up-to-date. The natural bridge in Aruba collapsed in 2005 but the book still has a picture of it with a description.

planned a Panama Canal cruise and found the book very helpful. Get the book before you even book the cruise though to get the most out of the book.
