Panama Canal Honeymoon Cruises


General Information About The Panama Canal

The Panama Canal is 50 miles long from deep water in the Atlantic to deep water in the Pacific. It was cut through one of the narrowest and lowest saddles of the long, mountainous Isthmus that joins the North and South American continents. The original elevation was 312 feet above sea level where it crosses the Continental Divide in the rugged mountain range.

It requires about 8 to 10 hours for an average ship to transit the Canal. During this brief time, the passengers aboard have an opportunity to see one of the modern wonders of the world in operation.

A ship is raised or lowered 26 meters (85 feet) in a continuous flight of three steps at Gatun Locks. Each lock chamber is 33.5 meters (110 feet) wide and 306 meters (1,000 feet) long

The history of the construction of the Panama Canal is the saga of human ingenuity and courage: years of sacrifice, crushing defeat, and final victory. Many gave their life in the effort. Bring your cameras and binoculars because there is no telling what you might see.
