Best time for a Panama canal cruise?

We will probably start in Ft. Lauderdale and end in San Francisco. It's a big occasion for us and we don't want it spoilt by mosquitos if possible. Any advice on the best time of year to travel through the canal avoiding mossies would be gratefully received.

Thanks,

Steve

You might get more relies on cruisecritic.com but as far as mosquitoes and Panama are concerned - they are around all year round - a bit more prevalent in the rainy season but that's off season for cruising anyway...

You just need to get some good repellent. There's no way to avoid mosquitoes if you are anywhere near the jungle in Panama.

Cheers,
