|Panama Cruise aboard the M/S Zaandam
|Before getting our new boat (late spring 2006), Nancy and I
decided to do some things we likely won't be doing once we have the
boat. A cruise to Panama aboard Holland America Lines m/s
Zaandam seemed to fit nicely into this category. Originally, the idea
was to accompany our parents, but for health reasons, both sets of
parents opted out at the last minute - leaving us to do our best without
them. To this end, we took tons of photos, and I've posted a bunch of
them here so they - and you - can share the trip vicariously. Enjoy!
