Panama Canal Cruise Tips

  • Get up bright and early for a prime spot on the ship to get a good view of the canal. Spots on the bow and rear of the ship can get claimed quickly.
  • The Panama sun and heat is famously brutal. Make sure you've brought sunscreen and/or a protective hat. Crew members keep guests well-stocked with cool drinks and towels, and refreshing snacks.
  • Consider a shore excursion to have the greatest safety while exploring at port rather than traveling independently. Some cities like Colon and Puerto Limon have a reputation for crime.
