    Panama Canal Experience

    Ciudad de Panamá (terminal de cruceros del Pacífico), Panamá

    Duración 7 hs.

    Experience the wonders of the Panama Canal on this spectacular partial canal transit. Arriving in Panama City, you will disembark the ship and take a short transfer by coach to the La Playita dock where you will board a spacious ferry and begin your unforgettable tour of the Panama Canal. The first lock you will pass through is the Miraflores Locks, where your ship will be raised the first 56 feet and enter Miraflores Lake. From here, you will transit through the Pedro Miguel Locks, where you will be raised the second 28 feet and enter Gatun Lake, once the largest man-made lake in the world. Crossing the Continental Divide at this point, you will continue to Gaillard Cut. The Gaillard (or Culebra) Cut, was the most challenging section of the canal to build. As you pass through the Cut, you'll see the continuing excavation that keeps this passage open to marine traffic. Enjoy a buffet lunch aboard the ferry before your fascinating tour of the Canal ends in the small village of Gamboa. While not large, Gamboa is home to the headquarters of the Panama Canal dredging division and some of the largest floating cranes in the world. After leaving your ferry, board a waiting motorcoach for the just over 1-hour drive back to the ship at Amador. Each tour participant will receive a certificate that commemorates their crossing of the Canal.

    Need to Know:

    Note: This tour includes minimal walking and is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair and who can both make their way on and off the coach. Casual, lightweight clothing; comfortable, flat walking shoes; sun caps; sunglasses, and sunscreen are suggested. Restrooms are available on the ferry but not on the coaches. The final duration of the tour is subject to the Panama Canal Authority and schedule that they confirm for this operation on the day before the tour. Minimum age to participate is 6 years of age. Maximum weight 300 lbs. All guests getting off the ship and going on tour in Panama will need to bring a valid Passport with minimum validity of 6 months.

    Two Oceans by Railroad

    Ciudad de Panamá (terminal de cruceros del Pacífico), Panamá

    Duración 6 hs.

    This completely unique tour could easily be the highlight of your trip. Just imagine traveling down the tracks of the first transcontinental railroad in a beautifully restored and richly adorned railcar, while viewing what is widely considered to be the 8th wonder of the world; the Panama Canal, as well as spectacular Gatun Lake and the extraordinarily beautiful flora and fauna of the surrounding countryside. Adding to all of that, the unrivaled experience of traveling from one ocean to another, crossing the amazing continent of the Americas in just over one hour!


    The Panama Railroad was the brainchild of a group of New York Financiers who wanted to create an easy passage for the increasing gold rush traffic. The railroad took five years and eight million dollars to build and was completed in 1855. During its first 12 years of operation, the train carried over 750 million dollars' worth of gold and silver and collected one-quarter of one percent of each shipment as duty. The railroad was rebuilt in 1909 during the construction of the Panama Canal, and without it, the canal could not have been built. Your journey will begin with a short coach transfer from the pier in Amador to the Pacific side railroad station where you will board the train for your approximately 75-minute rail journey. As you travel through the lush tropical rainforest, there is a good chance you'll sight some Howler monkeys, colorful toucans or other exotic wildlife. Crossing the Continental Divide, you'll find yourself on the Atlantic side, where you will disembark the train.

    From here, it's a short coach transfer to Aqua Clara or the Expansion locks where you can spend some time on the observation deck and observe up-close how the canal operates.

    Following your time at locks, you will re-board your coach and transfer back to the pier in Amador.

    Need to Know:

    Note: This tour includes minimal walking and is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair and who can both make their way on and off the train and the coach. Casual, light weight clothing; comfortable, flat walking shoes; sun caps; sunglasses and sunscreen are suggested. A light snack will be served on board the train and restrooms are available on the train and at the Locks, but not on the coaches. Wildlife sightings are not guaranteed. Minimum age to participate is 6 years of age. Maximum weight is 300 lbs. All guests getting off the ship and going on tour in Panama will need to bring a valid Passport with minimum validity of 6 months.
