The path between the two seas, the Panama Canal turns 100 years old on August 15, 2014. Al and Sunny Lockwood are a pair of intrepid retirees who lovingly documented their 17-day cruise through the Panama Canal. The subtitle, “Savoring 5,000 Nautical Miles and 500,000 Decadent Calories,” says it all; while Sunny documents the practical details, historical facts and unexpected encounters of their cruise, Al reviews the desserts and delicacies — luxuries large and small — served aboard their 1,200 passenger ship. Aimed at travelers who may be veterans of life, but first time cruisers. Sunny joins us on the broadcast to talk about cruising Panama’s Canal.
