    After back-to-back port days in Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta, we began the long journey south towards Panama. Since long before the trip, I had been looking forward to four consecutive days at sea. I was not disappointed! We came to love days at sea more than days in port. Days at sea were non-stop fun, excitement, and adventure - especially for our son. Days in port - especially for our son - were a bunch of "hurry up and waits" - hurry up and wait for the port adventure to leave the ship, hurry up and wait for the bus, hurry up and wait for the tender ride, etc. "At-sea" days had none of that. We could lounge around the pools. We could explore the ship. We could go to every character appearance we wanted. John could spend lots of time in the "Oceaneer's Lab", which he loved. Mom and dad could have spa days and dinner dates at Palo... There's so much to do aboard the ship!

    The morning of every at-sea day, there was a lecture about some aspect of the Panama Canal.

    [​IMG]
    The lectures were given by Capt. Kenneth Puckett, who retired after 16 years as a Senior Panama Canal Pilot. He and his lovely wife stayed in Stateroom 5122, next door to us. They couldn't have been better neighbors - Capt. Puckett and John became quick friends.

    [​IMG]
    We passed ships big...

    [​IMG]
    ...and small. I was amazed at how far out these tiny fishing boats came out to sea. Often we'd be out of sight of land, but still we'd pass tiny boats like this every couple of miles.

    Day Five was also a 'Formal Night', and an opportunity for pictures with the captain.

    Great pictures! I didn't see the blimp! Guess I should have been paying attention. Looks like you guys had a blast. We did a similar letter to DCL, but wrote it that last night and submitted it with our survey. Hopefully they will change/improve a few of the things. Time to bring it back to being as magical as it was!

    Day six was our second consecutive day at sea. John was spending the night in the grandma's cabin so Kathleen and I could have a date night - and so we had reservations for Palo that evening.

    [​IMG]
    The day began with another beautiful sunrise.

    The sea was rolling, so we went up and looked around

    [​IMG]
    We encountered Minnie as she was heading up for a deck party. We said that's where we were going, too, so Minnie took John's hand and he escorted her to the deck party!

    [​IMG]
    Goofy challenged him to an air guitar jam!

    Kathleen and I thoroughly enjoyed our 'Couples Massage' at the spa. Julie and Andrew were such wonderful masseuses that we booked a second 'Couples Massage' at the end of our first!

    [​IMG]
    After the massage, we got dressed up for dinner at Palo!

    [​IMG]
    After Palo, we found some of our friends!

    [​IMG]
    While we were having dinner, John found Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey!

    [​IMG]
    Luckily, we also found Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey. After taking this photo, I ran back to my stateroom for...

    [​IMG]
    ...MY Sorcerer's Apprentice hat!

    [​IMG]
    Mickey loved that I had a matching hat!

    Saturday, December 15th was our third consecutive day at sea.

    [​IMG]
    Looking from the verandah early that day, we spotted a rainbow just behind us...

    As we sailed ever closer to the Panama Canal, we got increasingly closer to the shore.

    Sunday, December 16th was the last of four consecutive days spent at sea. Tomorrow we'll transit the Panama Canal, but today we'll have fun aboard the Disney Wonder!

    Monday, December 17th was our date with the Panama Canal. Thanks to Capt. Puckett's lectures, we were all experts on the canal for our transit through one of the modern wonders of the world.

    We set our alarm for 5:45 AM as we'd be pulling up our anchor in Balboa Harbor and beginning the day-long voyage at 7 AM.

    [​IMG]

    The Bridge of the Americas and the start of the Panama Canal lies ahead!

    [​IMG]
    Something you can't see very many places on the west coast of the Americas - in Panama, the sun rises over the Pacific and sets over the Caribbean! Here, the sun rises over the Pacific Ocean...

    [​IMG]
    Sun rises over a refrigerated ship

    [​IMG]
    Our three Panama Canal pilots arrive for our voyage. One will be stationed on the bridge, one will be stationed on the bow, and one will be stationed at the stern.

    "Flamingo Station", the first signal station on the Pacific side of the canal

    [​IMG]
    The flags on the left designate the Disney Wonder as "November 17 Zulu". "N" or "November" indicates we're "Northbound" in the canal. "17" means we're the 17th north-bound ship of the day, and "Zulu" indicates we're a passenger vessel. The two flags on the right indicate we're in Panamanian waters (farthest right flag) and that we have a pilot on board (flag that is half red and half white).

    "Bridge of the Americas" North America on the left, South America on the right. There is a school bus on the bridge, partially hidden by our mast. Upon seeing the school bus, our captain sounded the ship's horn, which plays the first seven notes from "When You Wish Upon A Star". I'm sure it was a treat for those school kids to see and hear a Disney cruise ship!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    We could plainly see the construction of the new Miraflores Locks on the "North American" side of the canal.

    The catwalk with the yellow rails is actually the top of the lock gate. There isn't much room between the side of the lock at the side of the ship - 18" on each side!

    The guys with the blue shorts, white golf shirts, and black backpacks are Disney ship photographers who disembarked when the pilot boat brought our pilots aboard. They would photograph the ship as we progressed through the canal. Here, they were photographing passengers on the ship from Miraflores Locks.

    The rowboats are used to ferry small lines from the ship to the shore. Those small lines are attached to the locomotive's steel cables, which are then hauled aboard and attached to the ship, linking the ship to the positioning locomotive.

    Looking back, the tower cranes of the new canal project rise in front of the Bridge of the Americas.

    The Panama Canal is a tourist attraction to those aboard the 'Wonder', but the 'Wonder' is a tourist attraction to those who work at the Canal!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    The locks all have 'double-gates', as the failure of a single gate in a 'single-gate' system would result in the canal and Lake Gatun draining out to the sea. After the lock was replaced, it would take four to five years for Mother Nature to refill Lake Gatun to the level where the canal could once again be used.

    After the exciting day transiting the Panama Canal, we were unprepared for the excitement and beauty of our port day in Cartagena de los Indios, Colombia.

    Days 11 and 12 were both 'at-sea', meaning we had plenty of time to relax, make character appearances, attend a 'Princess Party', and generally just have fun aboard a darned-fun cruise ship!

    [​IMG]
    The Caribbean was much rougher than the Pacific. 'Pacific' means 'peaceful', and that was our experience on this cruise.

    This morning, we were awaken at 5:30 am when the closet door in our stateroom slammed open, making a heck of a loud bang. We were both immediately startled awake. Luckily, our seven year-old slept through it! Even more fortunate, we were both able to fall back asleep with the rocking ship, and slept in until 8:30, which is unheard of for us!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Mom MADE/FORCED John to escort her to the 'Princess Party'. There were two on our two-week cruise, and we'd missed the first one due to a miscommunication about a typo in the invitation. We made it to this one early enough to get a front row seat for Princess Kathleen!

    Once again we had another 'at-sea' day as we sailed from Cartagena, Columbia to Costa Maya, on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. As we'd be arriving at Costa Maya on December 21, 2012 - the supposed 'last day' of the Mayan calendar, Kathleen actually overheard a guest complain to the Guest Services desk that it was improper and risky for the 'Disney Wonder' to be anywhere near the Yucatan Peninsula on 12/21/12. Umm - hello - did you not know where the ship would be on 12/21/12 when you booked your cruise?!? We were excited to be spending 12/21/12 climbing Mayan ruins - but that's not until tomorrow.

    First, we have yet another day of fun, relaxation, and smiles aboard the 'Disney Wonder'!

    Of course John - and his buddy from the Oceaneer's Lab - are in the conga line!

    [Background music: REM's "It's The End Of The World As We Know It"]

    The date: December 21, 2012
    The place: Chacchoben, Mexico
    The reason: Touring Mayan ruins on the day some say the Mayan calendar foretold the apocalypse!

    Our final port call of this exquisite and amazing adventure was Costa Maya, Mexico, a relatively new port stop on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. The cruise terminal was built around 2000, but most of the area - including the cruise ship dock - was terribly damaged by Hurricane Dean in 2007. Costa Maya claims the closest access to Mayan ruins for cruise ship passengers. Our bus drive took about an hour to go the approximately 45 miles to the site of the Mayan ruins at Chacchoben.

    If you're referring to the Sorcerer's Apprentice hat, I got that at the Mad Hatter shop on Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland last April.

    I was so glad I brought it on the cruise, although they also sell them on the ship in "Mickey's Mates".

    December 22nd was our last day at sea and our last full day on the ship, as we arrive in Miami before dawn on Sunday, December 23rd. We decided to do all we could to stave off the sadness that comes at the end of two amazing weeks.
