About Panama Canal Transit

Spend an unforgettable day cruising the Panama Canal, a fifty-one-mile waterway through the rainforest that is one of the world's engineering masterpieces. The ship glides down the canal with inches to spare, through locks that raise and lower it like a toy. Along the way it crosses enormous Gatun Lake, and the amazing Gaillard Cut, blasted out of a solid mountainside.

We got up at 5 am before sunrise to see the canal workers dropped off on our ship and we had an expert narrate the entire transit which took about 12 hours. It was really fun to go through the canal in the daytime.

Panama Canal Transit: what the cruise is all about. We heard doors start slamming about 6:00AM so decide to get up. We were waiting with several other vessels to enter the locks. While we hadn’t started the transit yet we could see a lot from our balcony. Humberto was live on the TV and we were able to follow our progress. We went under the Bridge of the Americas then enter the Miraflores about 10:45AM, then the Pedro Miguel a half hour later. We transited the Gillard Cut and went through Gatun Lake. We finally enter the Gatun Locks about 4:00 PM and watched from deck 5 in the coffee shop. This was a wonderful spot as we started with window at the top of the lock and went down so the wall filled the window (kind of spooky). We were finally through about 5:30PM. While we did not go through the new locks we watched a ship enter and we could see it as we did the transit. This experience should definitely be on your “cruise to do list”.

Light rain for our transit. I found it interesting and it was on my bucket list but my husband was completely enthralled. The Panama Canal expert onboard did a great job narrating our transit.

Highlight of the cruise. No excursion for us, just leisurely watched us going thru the locks from our balcony and buffet dining room. The weather was perfect!!
