Luxury Panama Canal Cruises

A luxury Panama Canal cruise is a ‘must do’ on any cruiser’s bucket list. This engineering masterpiece was one of the largest and most difficult projects when it was built in 1914 by 80,000 workers. 

The Panama Canal is 48 miles of glimmering water connecting the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. During the journey, ships are lifted and lowered almost 200 feet through 3 sets of locks; the Gatun, the Pedro Miguel and the Miraflores. This is undoubtedly the most beautiful shortcut on Earth and mankind’s greatest accomplishments.

While the wonder of the Panama Canal and its mighty locks are the highlight of this luxury cruise, there are so many other adventures to be had. Venture into the Panamanian rainforest, snorkel in the beautiful seas or take a tour around the abandoned village of San Lorenzo Fort. In the town of Colón, witness the largest duty free zone in the Americas, a perfect opportunity for some shopping. Mingle with the locals to learn more about the inner workings of the canal’s locks. Explore habitats that were created by the building of the canal. 

In Panama City, visit the UNESCO World heritage site of Casco Viejo. Stroll the streets lined with old architecture mixed with modern boutiques and restaurants. For an insight into Panamanian culture, visit Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción or see the golden altar at the Iglesia de San José. Discover the delicious fusion of African and Spanish cuisine in the many restaurants of Panama City before heading to the Calle Uruguay district for the vibrant nightlife. 

Our experts say

I found the Panama Canal fascinating. We had an expert on board explaining the history of how the Panama Canal was made as we transited through the 2 sets of locks. Small train engines hook onto the ship to guide her into position. It is truly incredible to see all the mechanics passing through the differing levels at either end of the Panama Canal. Top Tip – each set of locks – Miraflores and Gatun – have live web cams – give the link to your families and they can share the experience with you.

Best Time To Cruise Around The Panama Canal

A luxury Panama Canal cruise is ideal between February and April. This is the dry season of this tropical country and the hottest months of the year. Cloudiness is always possible in Panama and amounts of sunshine aren’t always in abundance, however May-December is considered the rainy season so it’s best to avoid travelling then.
