5.0 out of 5 stars One Fine Book for a Panama Canal Cruise 10 Aug 2006
By W. B. Mahaffey - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I recently purchased "Panama Canal by Cruise Ship" by Anne Vipond. It is superb! I am a recently-retired submariner from the U.S. Navy and was stationed at one time in the Canal Zone. I have transited the Canal twice on Navy ships and again recently as a part of a Panama Canal study program aboard the Isla Morada. I am a serious historian of the Panama Canal from before the Panama Railroad to the present. I have accumulated much information in the form of books and over 350 old postcards of the Panama Canal Zone. But I have never seen such a "meaty" yet concise history of Panama and the Canal as Ms Vipond offers. The

information presented by Ms Vipond is unusually factual and well-researched.

5.0 out of 5 stars Panama Canal by Cruise Ship 3 Aug 2005
By Don J. Barichak - Published on Amazon.com
This is a very compact, comprehensive book not only on the Panama Canal but also the Caribbean Islands and Mexico.

The book has a section on the history of the Panama Canal. This book has wonderful maps of each island and port of call. It's very well organized and is a great travel companion to take with you when travelling.

This is a must-have book for any person who loves to cruise!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Guide for upcoming partial transit of canal 28 May 2007
By Linda H. Canada - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This will be packed and going on my upcoming cruise. It has not only the historical, cultural, political perspectives on the canal, but has all the Central America, Mexico, South America ports where you stop during the cruise. Wonderful maps, pictures, and discussions about the surrounding areas.

I am enjoying studying it each night in prepartion for our cruise.

Well write and easy to pack. This author did a tremendous job with this guide. I would definitely buy other guides from Ms. Vipond.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting, better than the tour guide 28 Aug 2007
By Walker Shaw - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Our Holland America transit of the Panama Canal in May '07 included a veteran tour guide talking on the ships announcement systems. His description was very poor and the facts were just wrong. I knew that because I had read this book.

I recommend you buy and read this book before making your transit.

The book is just what we needed for our cruise in October 2010. I liked the information and it gave us some great ideas on what to see and enjoy on this trip. The company that sent the book describe the item and condition perfectly. We were impressed with the service.
