The Panama Canal is a must-see destination for many silver travellers. Dubbed “one of the seven wonders of the modern world,” this 48-mile waterway divides two continents and connects two mighty oceans.
Experience one of the world’s greatest engineering achievements with the experts at Holland America Line as the Captain opens the ship’s bow to enable guests to take advantage of an eight hour daylight canal transit, while a Canal historian illuminates the journey with fascinating history and facts. Marvel as a series of three giant locks raise then lower their cruise ship from one ocean to another, then spend a day cruising through the canal, watching the scenery from the comfortable lounges, teak decks and picture windows of an elegant hotel at sea!
With HAL, you’ll also enjoy so much more space per person, elegant lounges adorned with fine art and antiques; large, comfortable staterooms – most with ocean views and many with private balconies. On your way, visit scintillating cities such as Cartagena in Columbia, tour to the fascinating Mayan temples of Guatemala; soak in the steamy rainforests of Costa Rica and enjoy the charms of some gorgeous Caribbean islands, including HAL’s own private Half Moon Cay! Prices start from £1499pp for a 10-day Panama Canal Sunfarer sailing from Fort Lauderdale 15 January 2023.
