The first chamber will raise the ship 27 feet and the second chamber will have the ship 54 feet above sea level.  Total transit time is about 1.5 hours to get the ship up to Miraflores Lake.

    @masja_travels MS Veendam is part of Holland America's cruise line. The company originated in the Netherlands but is now American/British own. You may recognize some if the other Dutch names as MS Amsterdam, MS Maasdam, MS Ryndam...to name a few. What is great about this line is that there may be less than 2000 passengers on these ships as opposed to some of the super cruise ships these days๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

    @hanklouiefoto Yes, I know the Holland-America Line, but didn't know this ship was part of it. Thx for the info! In R'dam you can still visit the 'Hotel New York', where the Holland-America Line used to depart. A lovely building!

    @masja_travels oh...than YOU for the info about the NY building. There's a lot of history between NY and the the Dutch.

    One of the marvels of human engineering! Didn't they say that with the polar ice melt, ships could soon go north and avoid looping through the Panama Canal? Its days are numbered!
