Cruised On Princess thru the Panama Canal In December of 2017 What an amazing experience this was and the scenery was awesome The view both going thru and coming back thru was breathtaking Loved It back
An amazing man made structure that connects 2 vast oceans . It’s a privilege to be there and watch how the water levels and gates are managed and the way the huge vessels are guided through the canal . There is a viewing area ,...More
We really enjoyed the whole experience going through the locks. We went through it to there man made lake then back through it to the ocean to keep on our cruise. It was worth what we paid for the whole cruise to be able to...More
We recently cruised through Gatun Locks and the entire experience was incredible to watch. The magnificence of this creation is great to see first hand, not only as our ship passed through but also watching cargo ships passing through the adjacent lock. This was on...More
Going through the locks of the Panama was very amazing and it does take all day to transit through. the Gatun locks had a very impressive building between the two locks and very well cared for. The working of the locks are beyond me but...More
It cost our cruise ship $385,000 to transverse the three locks to enter Gatun Lake (and return) in 2018. Even with the new locks, fewer ships use it.

Some cruise lines offer trips on the lake, it depends on how long the ship is to remain in the lake before going back out. We originally had a tour scheduled but since the ship was only going to be there for a couple of hours it was cancelled. Need to check with the cruise line on the timing in the lake and it could change the day before or the day of which makes for contracting with someone other than the cruise line tough.
