Onboard the Celebrity Equinox – Day 7

Day 7, another port day, this time Colon in Panama. Again, another port we have been to, but, low and behold, the sun is shining this time. We took another ship organized tour, this time an eco cruise on Gatun lake and then a visit to the Gatun Locks. I have to say, the eco cruise this time was a bust. We saw a few raptors or birds of prey, but that’s it. We did have a nice cruise on the lake which is calm and clear, but without having sighted sloths, or toucans or other wildlife, it really was just a peaceful cruise on a lake. The locks on the other hand were as exciting as ever. The sheer scale and magnitude of the engineering involved in building the canal plus the enjoyment of watching ships traverse it is worth the visit.

Back on board, lots to do as usual. The martini bar is a very busy and crowded place. Probably because its lots of fun and is a form of entertainment.

Tonight we listened to the Dara Tucker Quartet in the Ensemble Lounge. This lounge area is tucked away adjacent to Murano and on the way to the other specialty restaurants. It is a nice and cozy, dimly lit space perfect for some quiet jazz, even though the bar here can be lively at times. Everyone on their way to Silk Harvest, Tuscan Grille or Murano must pass this way.
