Cruise Through Panama Canal Details

Take a Panama Canal cruise to witness for yourself one of history’s most impressive feats of engineering—and some of California, Mexico, and Central America’s prettiest scenery. You really can have it all on this unforgettable cruise and land tour!

Your guided cruise tour begins with a stop in Cartagena, a stunning UNESCO-listed city on the Caribbean coast. From there, you’ll be awed as you cross over the legendary Panama Canal, the 51-mile passage connecting the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.

On the Pacific side, you’ll have plenty of time to relax and soak up the rays in sunny beach towns and resort cities from Costa Rica to Mexico.

Your cruise ends in Los Angeles, where you begin you tour up the California coast. You won’t find a more dazzling spot than ritzy Santa Barbara. Known as the American Riviera, Santa Barbara is renowned for its Spanish mission-style architecture and clear ocean views.

Continuing north, you can sample a Danish pastry in Solvang in the picturesque Santa Ynez Valley, and look out for playful dolphins along Pismo Beach. History lovers will enjoy visiting the fishermen’s community of Monterey, where historical buildings bring early California to life. Wrap up your journey in the “City by the Bay.” San Francisco is full of iconic architecture including the Golden Gate Bridge, Coit Tower, and the Victorian Painted Ladies.
