I will be on Celebrity in March stopping at Cristobal Pier. Can anyone tell me ANYTHING about this stop. My understanding is that upon arrival you go through the Gutan Locks into Lake Gutan. While in Lake Gutan passengers will take tenders to their excursion. After this the boat docks at Cristobal Pier. Is this familiar to anyone? It appears to me that the Boat would need to back through the locks to get to the Pier. Or is the Pier in the Lake? What about the Pier itself? Much to do there? Places to eat? Shopping? I do hear that Panama is not the best place to go off on your own. I will take any insight that the wisdom of this room can offer.
