Crossing the Panama Canal
It’s an engineering marvel, a multi-billion-dollar commercial behemoth. The Panama Canal, which joins the Atlantic to the Pacific, is certainly Panama’s greatest claim to fame. Moving mountains and carving through dense jungle, the creation of the canal in 1914 literally reshaped the natural landscape of this sliver of Central America.

We always have fun at sea, but we do it responsibly.
