There are many cheap cruises to be found that cruise along one of the most brilliant pieces of engineering of modern times; The Panama Canal. To many Panama Canal Cruises are among the best.
Construction of the 80 kilometre canal was completed in 1914 and it was built to connect the mighty oceans of the Pacific and the Atlantic. Cruising along the length of the canal, only centimetres from its sides in places, is an unforgettable experience.
Each time one of the mighty locks is used on the canal an amazing 197 million litres of fresh water is required to raise a vessel some 26 metres. Just imagine the thrill of this on a massive cruise liner such as P&O cruises Artemis!
Beyond the sheer sides of the canal lays kilometre upon kilometre of unspoilt jungle and rain forest which is teeming with birds and other exotic wildlife. Other great places to view are the Gatun Locks, Panama City, the Embera Indian Village, the Pedro Miguel & Miraflores locks and the wonderful Bridge of the Americas.
Many of the world’s top cruise lines such as P&O Cruises; Royal Caribbean; Princess Cruises; Holland America Line (HAL); Celebrity Cruises; Crystal Cruises; Seabourn; Oceania Cruises; MSC Cruises and Sliversea have cheap cruises sailing the Panama Canal.
So it has been your dream to sail the wonderful feat of engineering that joins Mexico to America, take one of many cheap cruises to the Panama Canal and sail it in comfort and style. Panama Canal Cruises sail throughout the year and are therefore available when it suits you.
