Princess is the number one cruise line sailing to this bucket list destination, and as awe-inspiring as it is to travel through one of Condé Nast Traveler’s 7 Cruise Wonders of the World, we’ll help you explore equally fascinating places along the way.
So stretch out on a Caribbean beach, admire the pristine rainforests, stroll the cobbled streets of colonial towns and journey through the fabled Panama Canal.
While you can visit the canal round trip from either Ft. Lauderdale or Los Angels, we've decided to feature two of the ocean-to-ocean voyages:
Sail between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans transitioning between all three sets of locks - Gatun Miraflores and Pedro Miguel
Explore and visit island gems in the Caribbean, lush rainforests in Central America, and the culturally diverse ports along the Pacific coast
Princess crafts itineraries to enrich guests' experiences to provide the most exposure to this bucket-list destination. You'll be enchanted by Spanish and Dutch cities dating back centuries, as well as diverse tropical rainforests, white-sand beaches, dramatic volcanoes and UNESCO World Heritage Sites. And Princess provides live narration from the bridge while transiting the locks, just one reason we were voted "Best Cruise Line for Enrichment" by Cruise International.
Princess brings the Panama Canal and surrounding regions to life onboard. Our Carnaval de Panama Festival of the World celebration focuses on indigenous music and dance, and locallly inspired cuisine, plus expert guest speakers and enrichment programs that put the spotlight on the unique history of the Canal.
Each voyage offers a myriad of experiences and cultures. There is something for every type of explorer in this culturally diverse region. Choose from immersive excursions such as exploring the engineering mastery of the Canal, trekking through surrounding rainforests, visiting local villages and relaxing on the pristine beaches of the Caribbean.
