I transited the canal more or less 30-40 times, I will miss it after retiring some time soon.
Not really looking fwd to transit the new canal anyhow,,,somehow the romantic/adventure to pass something "great" is gone by the widening and deepening.

@Tuomas
you seem missing the point
a figure 1-37cam leaves anything open,,in other words never mind what reality might be in one hundred years those scientists at that time can say,,you see our predecessors were already right.

I , as layman can also say than,,,1-150 cm,,and in 100 years hence,when it might be 30cm, I am heralded as a prophet. The gap 1-37cm is a rather wide gap...if they would say it will be 28-32,, I would say,,aha,,good scientific works,, when I see 1-37cm,,I don,t see any scientific work,,at least not good one

I,d guess that the main "wild" numbers and theorethical calculations a designed to increase
awareness,,, NOT to make peoples change but that wilder the numbers that more money grants flow from the governments and therefore keeping mostly research centers at Universities healthy and alive.
Whatever it is,,,a statement from " serious scentists that it can rise from 1-37cm is in my opinion not scientific but a shot into the blank.

That,s like that Hurricane predicter Prof Gray I think at the University of Arizona
he predicted one time the numbers of named storms correct and was 15 years and more a hero
until peoples realized it was pure luck. I predict since years between 13-18 named storms and I am 60-70 % right. Alas nobody called me expert or push government grants on me,,,guess I don,t sell myself too good :-((

A prediction as below,,that sea levels may rise from 1-37 cm,,,
any "idiot" can make a prediction like that
no wonder that nobody believes anything on this matter



Ice discharge from Antarctica could contribute up to 37 centimeters to the global sea level rise within this century, a new study shows. For the first time, an international team of scientists provide a comprehensive estimate on the full range of Antarctica's potential contribution to global sea level rise based on physical computer simulations. Led by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, the study combines a whole set of state-of-the-art climate models and observational data with various ice models.

The results reproduce Antarctica's recent contribution to sea level rise as observed by satellites in the last two decades and show that the ice continent could become the largest contributor to sea level rise much sooner than previously thought.

"If greenhouse gases continue to rise as before, ice discharge from Antarctica could raise the global ocean by an additional 1 to 37 centimeters in this century already," says lead author Anders Levermann. "Now this is a big range – which is exactly why we call it a risk: Science needs to be clear about the uncertainty, so that decision makers at the coast and in coastal megacities like Shanghai or New York can consider the potential implications in their planning processes," says Levermann.

When I read below,,somehow it contradicts, first extra surprise,,here and there ashore
and bear watching etc and then cultural respect.
As bad as it sounds, the best is right away a nice accident with oil spill and the waters
closed forever. That's the only way to respect the cultural of that areas people as touted further below.

I wonder, what a tourist will do in the middle of a tundra ?



1)A flexible itinerary: Extra “surprise” days are built into the schedule to allow unplanned “calls of the wild” for polar bear-viewing, whale-watching, glacier-cruising, scenic helicopter flights, and/or seeking out the best wildlife and weather on the advice of local specialist guides.

2)New adventures ashore: Crystal will introduce “Wilderness Adventures” that take guests across polar tundra, up ice-strewn fjords, and into scenic coves to explore areas in and near maiden ports-of-call.  Travelers will also be able to respectfully visit the small, remote communities and uninhabited, unscheduled spaces/lands/waterways en route – often with champagne waiting at the other end.  Although some excursions will only be determined “in the moment” based on circumstances and environment, Crystal will spend the next two years planning a plethora of excursions and “Arctic safaris” involving kayaks, Zodiacs, a helicopter, ATVs, fishing, hiking, climbing, golfing at the world’s northernmost nine-hole  course, and even possible camping and/or overnighting away from the ship.  Voluntourism opportunities to help local lands and communities will also be offered complimentarily to guests and crew via the line’s “You Care.  We Care.” program.

3)New enrichment: A 14-person expedition team of experts in a variety of subjects — including a native Arctic guide, scientists, and accomplished wildlife and landscape photographers — will not only provide lectures on subjects such as the science and history of the area, but also offer hands-on seminars and workshops, host dinners with guests, guide wildlife watching from the ship, and accompany excursions, where appropriate.

4)Respect & understanding of the local culture:  Guests will be given a rare opportunity to immerse themselves in the lifestyles of these small and remote communities during port visits, with activities created in partnership with the communities.  Designed to show modern life today in the Arctic, as well as the rich cultural heritage of the region, visits will include demonstrations of local arts and crafts, Arctic sports, traditional drum dancing and throat singing, and tastings of local foods, such as Arctic char and bannock bread.
