Wouldn't an ETA to the canal admin be some kind of service message.

Yes indeed. Did it back in 2007, aboard "Tikeibank", southbound to Tahiti and NZ from Europe - emigration trip no. 3! Gliding, as you say, through the Culebra Cut in the dark; dead silence, water meeting land boundaries impossible to make out, a black sheet of dead calm and us gliding through, seemingly soundlessly ourselves. I was up in the foc'sle with the Mate and his men, ship eventually passing under the massive road bridge and onward... Amazing place back in the day and still is now.

That would have been handy if you could ever get an answer out of them.
