Cruise Ships to Panama Canal

The Panama Canal was advantageously placed at one of the shortest distances between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans in Central America. Most cruises through the canal are “respositioning” cruises, between-season voyages that move ships from the Pacific Coast or Alaska to the Caribbean – or vice-versa.

Cruise Ships to Curacao

Many longer Caribbean cruises – 8 days or more – make it as far south as the “ABC Islands” of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao. Curacao is the largest of those islands, sitting 50 miles off the coast of Venezuela. Cruises to Curacao make port in the town of Willemstad, which is known for its pastel-colored colonial-style architecture.
