Depending on the canal scheduling, you may see the enormous vessels that transit the canal, and you’ll pass through towns and villages named for the people who built this ‘path between the seas’.

Enjoy the beautiful rain forest scenery as you cross the Continental Divide from ocean to ocean in just an hour.

You’ll pass the working locks and some of the old Canal Zone area that has now been returned to the people of Panama.

At the station, board a bus for a trip to the Miraflores Locks Observation Center, where you will visit the locks and exhibitions halls which include historical objects of canal operations, interactive modules, video presentations, and models of the Panama Canal the small museum, before returning to the ship.
