Cruise Panama: From the Big Blue SeaWritten by Adam Lenk
The workings of Panama Canal are a sight to behold whether or not you're a history buff or mechanically inclined. The Panama Canal was completed in 1914, at cost of 30,000 people's lives and funding from two nations.
Today, most of original innovations and machinery is still utilized. However, there's no better way to tour canal than in a firsthand experience through its passage.
Touring Panama Canal by cruise ship makes for an amazing vacation and a historical adventure. It takes about eight hours to make passage through three locks, which raise ship solely through gravity through manmade canal over Central America. Head for deck to watch your ship line up in morning to pass through canal. A canal historian aboard ship will serve as your guide and provide a running commentary of interesting details and fascinating facts about Panama Canal's construction and operational history.
The best part of about cruising Panama Canal is that you not only take in Panama's ports like Colon, Cristobal, Isla San Telmo, or Isla de Coiba and Canal's amazing views but that these tours usually include several stops at glorious in-route ports of call, which may include Mexico's Cozumel, Puerto Vallarta, or Acapulco, Cayman Islands, Costa Rica's Limon, Caldera, or Guanacaste, and even Jamaica's Montego Bay.
