Cruise Select

For many people, transitting the Panama Canal is something they want to tick off their bucketlist. One of the largest and most difficult engineering projects ever undertaken, the 48-mile long Panama Canal was opened in 1914, connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, greatly reducing the time it took for ships to travel between these two great oceans, and enabling them to avoid the notorious Cape Horn route around southernmost South America. The Canal has been expanded, with a third, wider lane of locks constructed between September 2007 and May 2017, allowing larger ships through.

However, a Panama Canal transit is just one of the many highlights to be enjoyed whilst cruising in this colourful, vibrant region, renowned for its tropical jungle, ancient Mayan and Aztec ruins, and multi-sport adventures. A Central American cruise will see you create a kaleidoscopic range of memories for life, from snorkelling along the colourful reefs of the Belize coast, kayaking through crystal waters to sandy white cayes, hiking through Costa Rica's tropical rain forests, listening out for howler monkeys and the squawks of macaws, and discovering the intriguing pyramid temples of the Mayan empire. This a beautiful, compact region, including Costa Rica, Panama, Honduras, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Belize, but also offers up exciting possibilities with an extension into Mexico, Peru or Ecuador.
