Panama Canal Cruises

Panama Canal Overview

Traversing the locks of the Panama Canal takes about nine hours--leaving plenty of time on Panama Canal cruises to explore Caribbean and South American ports.
What to Expect: The man-made wonder of the canal followed by the natural beauty of Caribbean beaches and the ancient wonders of the Inca world.
When to Go: The Panama Canal is a year-round destination.
What to Do: See the tallest waterfall in the world in Venezuela, sunbathe on a Caribbean beach, and take a dip in the Pacific the next day. In South America, explore ancient Inca ruins.
Local Color: Dive for your dinner like the natives do in the idyllic San Blas Islands of Panama.
Don't Miss: The Gatun Locks, halfway through the Panama Canal, where the ship will be raised as much as 85 feet.
Don't Forget: If it weren't for the Panama Canal, it would take weeks to get from the Caribbean Sea to the Pacific Ocean.
