Cruise the Panama Canal
The Panama Canal linking the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean, is one of the most unforgettable experiences in cruising. It took over ten years to complete back n 1914, to avoid the often perilous journey around Cape Horn.
Some special highlights of the Panama Canal are the Gaillard cut and Gatun Lake. The lake is one of the largest man made and covers over 163 square miles. The Gaillard Cut is a channel of over 8 miles built through solid rock and the most difficult part of the whole canal excavation.
