PANAMA CANAL CRUISE
Nov 20th - Dec 7, 2013
Richard & Agnes Fredericks
For the past 9 years McConaghy Tours and Lobstick Tours have offered a Panama Canal sailing every November and on our 10th Anniverary sailing, it was decided we would go with the cruise line that has consistantly offered the best service and pricing, Celebrity. This combined with the extremely positive feedback from last years sailors, confirms this is the right choice for our friends wanting to sail this year. I am sure Richard and Agnes will work very hard to ensure this is the best Panama Canal Sailing ever.
