Panama Canal

Six immense locks raise and lower cruise ships passing through the Panama Canal. The canal was originally constructed in 1814 as it saved ships about 8,000 miles when they needed to cross from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean and vice versa. Use your interline discounts to cruise aboard a cruise ship as it passes through this amazing canal. An expert will teach you about the process along with the costly history of the canal which claimed 25,000 lives during its construction.

Use your interline rates to choose a Panama Canal cruise that meets your needs the best, as there are different options. Some people enjoy leaving and returning to Florida. Choosing this option allows you to pass through the first set of locks before cruising through beautiful Gatun Lake and then stopping in Cristobal, Puerto Limon and Grand Cayman. Some cruises head north from ports in Florida allowing you to see the United States first.

Alternatively, use your interline discounts to book a cruise leaving from the east or west coast of the United States arriving back on the other coast. These cruises often stop at the fascinating ports of Puerto Caldera, Corinto, Antigua and Puerto Chiapas. They make a wonderful adventure for those who would like to see the southern United States after their cruise before returning home.

Deciding on which Panama Canal cruise booked on an interline discount can be very tough. If you have never been on a cruise before, do not stress about it too much because once you take a cruise, you will want to take another one very soon.
