It doesn't matter. To really see the Canal, you should not be planning to stay on your balcony all day. You need to be out and about, watching from different locations. As commonly recommended here, being on the bow (if your cruise line allows it) as you enter a lock or two, is impressive. Being on the open, low promenade deck ( if your ship has one) during a couple of locks is also great.
