Join us on a cruise that relives the dramatic chapter in history when two oceans were joined in an earth-moving endeavor that altered the geography of the Americas forever. Dams stopped the rivers in their tracks. Valleys became lakes. Mountains, islands. The Continental Divide was reduced by a winding channel.
Such events are upstaged only by the ingenious workings of the finished product. Come marvel as three giant locks raise, then lower your cruise ship from one ocean to another, using no other power than the force of gravity - and 53 million gallons of water!
Cruising highlights may include a stop in the San Blas Islands to visit with the Cuna Indians...pre-Columbian makers of exquisite multi-layered tapestries, or molas; and a morning exploring Costa Rica's species-rich Golfo Dulce coast. Plus, there's the sun-drenched islands of the Caribbean, the Mayan ruins of Guatemala, the seaside resorts of the Mexican Riviera, and the fabulous cities of the U.S. west coast.
