No, you do not see the same things, the itinerary is different for a start and secondly when going from Florida and back you will only touch the Panama Canal or at best go up into Lake Gatun and back down again. The west coast of Mexico and America is totally different from the Caribbean in so many ways. Look at the different ports of call and decide where your priorities lie then go for that. In my opinion these are totally different cruises. ... Neil.
