Trip at a Glance
As Panama celebrates the 100th anniversary of the opening of its canal in 2014, there’s no better time to celebrate one of mankind’s most astounding achievements, during a cruise that champions a culmination of toil, diplomacy, and engineering prowess unmatched in the modern world. On our Panama Canal cruise, you’ll take three nights to complete a full daylight transit of this man-made marvel aboard Grand Circle's privately chartered, 24-passenger catamaran, the M/S Discovery. The epic tale of the construction of the Panama Canal will unfold before you as you cross the canal—and you may glimpse evidence of the future, as construction is completed on a new set of locks that will expand the canal for the first time. Then, your land explorations will introduce you to Panama's indigenous people, take you into the country's spectacular rain forests, and on a fascinating visit to a butterfly garden—and more. From the bustling activity of the Canal Zone and the abundance of wildlife in the rain forest to the quiet beauty of the coasts, Panama beckons. Plus, you can enhance your Small Ship Cruise Tour with our Bocas Del Toro, Panama: Wild Archipelago and Colonial Cartagena, Colombia: The Emerald of the Caribbean optional extensions.
