Panama Canal Cruises

A Panama Canal cruise is the only way to experience everything that the Eight Wonder of the World has to offer. This strategic waterway linking the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans crosses the land bridge between North and South America. Completed by the US Army Corps of Engineers in 1914, the final steps in turning the Panama Canal over to Panama occurred on December 31, 1999.

Every Panama Canal cruise features stunning tropical beauty, sun-kissed beaches and radiant warmth. You can enjoy the Canal in as few as seven nights on a partial Canal transit trip roundtrip from Ft. Lauderdale. Or, if you prefer the complete experience, then choose from a variety of east- or west-bound full-transit itineraries, usually from 10 to 21 nights. Such a cruise might start as far north as Vancouver, bringing you down the California coast, to Acapulco Mexico, through the Panama Canal, to Costa Rica, Curacao and finally Ft. Lauderdale.

Best of all, premium line Holland America gets you there in five-star luxury and elegance, recognized time and again as "the best premium cruise line in the world," and "the best overall cruise value." Such is the carefree world of Holland America, where you leave behind the world of routine, regimen and restrictions. And so extraordinary is the cuisine aboard Holland America that the prestigious Chane des Rtisseurs gourmet society created a Professionel de la Marine category for which Holland was the first recipient. 

In Holland America's universe there is something for everyone. Start your day with the ship's daily activity sheet, circle your choices and go with the flow. Walk around the promenade deck, join an aerobics class, play bingo or learn the hottest dance south of the 20th parallel. Play Trivial Pursuit, take an art and history tour of the ship, have a massage or sauna, work on your tan, or stop by the Sports Bar to check out ESPN. It's your choice!

Holland America enhances your full eight-hour Panama Canal transit with a canal historian who will come aboard to explain the amazing workings of the locks and point out the interesting sights along the way. Did you know that within the Canal itself you'll sail through Gatun Lake, one of the largest artificial lakes in the world? You'll pass the Continental Divide at Gaillard Cut, go through the Pedro Miguel Locks that lower your ship 31 feet in one step, and under the mile-long Bridge of the Americas at the entrance to the Pacific!
