Panama Canal Cruises

The Panama Canal should be on everyone’s list of must-see places. Named as one of the most fascinating places to experience in the world and boasting some of the best unspoilt scenery, it is no wonder that more and more people are choosing to cruise this amazing canal.

The Panama Canal is a 48 mile ship canal that connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean, making it one of the most important routes in the world. There are locks at each end, and you will first-hand experience what it is like to be on a ship that has to rise 85 feet within a lock.

The splendour of cruising the Panama Canal is unlike anything thing else you will ever experience. As you pass through this amazing channel you will get to see the combination of natural and man-made, boasting an array of exotic, tropical rainforests.

The Panama Canal cruise season typically runs from October to April. The best time to go is after November when the rainy season is over.

More and more of your favourite cruise lines are adding Panama Canal to their itinerary list, enabling you to choose from a range of luxury cruises, family cruises or singles cruises.

Panama Cruises - Ports of Call

 

Cruising through the Panama Canal can be done either from Atlantic to the Pacific or visa versa. Panama crossings take in the best of the Mexican Riviera as well as taking you through the impressive canal itself. The Panama canal is a 50 miles long and strecthes from Panama City on the Pacific coast through to Colon on the Atlantic coast, acting as a gateway between the world's largest oceans. While crusing along the canal you can take in the Gatun Locks, the former pirate paradise of Portobelo or the canal side jungle. The Mexican Riveira side of the cruise takes you to Acupulco, famous for its white sandy beaches and vibrant nightlife and Huatulco as well as Puntarenas in Costa Rica, home to some of the countries finest beaches and the Manuel Antonio Park.

 

Caribbean Cruise to Panama

 

Another option to take in a Panama Canal Cruise is to enjoy a Caribbean cruise with either a partial transit or a trip to Colon on the Atlantic cost of Panama. These cruises will often take you to a variety of Caribbean islands from the shopping haven of St. Maarten to the beatuiful beaches of Aruba and St. Lucia. You could also take in Limon, Costa Rica and the Rainforest Aerial Tram ride through the nature reserve adjacent to the national park or a trip to the cobbled streets and balconies of Cartagena, Columbia.
