Deals on the Best Panama Canal Cruises

The Panama Canal is a man-made, 50-mile-long waterway that was created to connect the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. This made sailing from the West Coast of the U.S. to the East Coast and South America - and beyond - far faster. Trade between nations has also increased due to this modern technological marvel.

What is a Panama Canal Cruise? Panama Canal cruises are available in a variety of different durations and usually fall into two categories: partial transits and full transits. We are excited to offer travelers both partial and full transit cruises through the Panama Canal at the very best prices. Panama Cruises on Oceania, Princess, Seabourn, Norwegian, and Holland America cruise lines are popular choices for many and can be booked online today with no booking feess! Cruise this historic area and experience history for yourself.

Panama Canal Cruise Tips

  • Get up bright and early for a prime spot on the ship to get a good view of the canal. Spots on the bow and rear of the ship can get claimed quickly.
  • The Panama sun and heat is famously brutal. Make sure you've brought sunscreen and/or a protective hat. Crew members keep guests well-stocked with cool drinks and towels, and refreshing snacks.
  • Consider a shore excursion to have the greatest safety while exploring at port rather than traveling independently. Some cities like Colon and Puerto Limon have a reputation for crime.
