Transited the Suez Canal. Very different from going through the Panama Canal. No locks but lots of sand on each side and a big bridge at the end near the Mediterrean Sea. We were the first ship of a convoy of 15 ships heading north. We had a pilot on board the entire time. They did change pilots midway through. It is said that it costs $250000 per ship to go through. Very nice day with lots of sun and wind.
