The Panama Canal is a must-see destination. Dubbed “one of the seven wonders of the modern world” by the American Society of Civil Engineers, this 48-mile waterway divides two continents and connects two mighty oceans and what better way for any true seafarer than to sail through it? A full Panama Canal transit takes you through a total of 12 locks. During your journey from the Pacific Ocean to Gatún Lake, your cruise ship will rise through the locks of Miraflores and Pedro Miguel. Near the town of Gatún, you’ll feel her descend to the Atlantic.
Trace the lush coast of Central America, uncovering rich history and culture, magnificent natural beauty and a breathtaking manmade wonder. Glimpse the ways of Belize’s Mayan civilization and the traditions of Panama’s Emberá people. Admire sand beaches and turquoise waters in Honduras, Jamaica and the Cayman Islands. Walk with a resident through Cartagena’s vibrant Old Town.
