Cruising the Panama Canal

Balmoral Panama Canal
Balmoral Panama Canal

The Panama Canal is one of the world’s greatest feats of engineering, stretching 48 miles across the continental divide, from Panama City on the Pacific side to Colón on the Atlantic side.

The canal transit takes approximately 8 hours which will give you time to relax on deck and witness the amazing mix of manmade construction and beautiful unspoilt scenery. Referred to by many as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’, your ship will pass through three locks, being lifted and lowered in excess of 170 feet in the process.

Between these locks is a 21-mile transit through Gatun Lake, which was once the largest artificial lake in the world, and is still surrounded by untouched, dense rainforest which plays host to a vast array of Central American animal and plant species. The lake forms a major part of the Panama Canal transit across the Isthmus of Panama.
