Panama Canal

At over 100 years old, and nearly 80 kilometers long, the Panama Canal is a modern day feat of engineering and ingenuity that is recognised as being one of the most sophisticated pieces of architecture in the world. You will marvel at The Panama Canal as you experience this bridge between North and South America and pass through its many locks.

During the many years of construction there were huge obstacles for the workers, including ravaging diseases and engineering issues. It was eventually completed and has vastly improved the journey time for all ships travelling between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Nowadays cruise ships pass through it for pleasure, but for cargo ships it was a much safer alternative than the hazardous Cape Horn route.

When to Go

The best time to sail through the canal is between October and April so as to avoid the rainy season. The journey normally takes between 8 and 10 hours.
