This is a transcript of the game narrative when the player selects the Panama route.Panamaticket

The Panama route, since it is in most cases the most expensive route, generally attracts the slightly more sophisticated passenger. But the jungle has no respect for sophistication, only surprises! Some of these people haven't seen a hard day's work in their entire lives, save chopping that firewood for mother.

But nonetheless, it has become the route taken by New York brokers, Philadelphia lawyers, Boston bankers and big city doctors.

The captain advises the passengers that it will take approximately two to three weeks to get to the Rio Chagres.

There is one main advantage of this route over the Cape Horn route. It normally takes less time than the Cape Horn route, getting you to that California Gold as soon as possible!!
