Transiting the Panama Canal vaults you into the highest category of world travelers. But a Holland America Line Panama Canal cruise is much more than a trip through the locks. It's a walk along the ramparts of a Spanish castle in Cartagena. It's an afternoon mulling ancient ruins in Puerto Chiapas, Mexico. It's a hike in the Costa Rican rainforest, where life teems with colors as vivid as a patisserie.

Holland America Line can take you to the canal in more ways than any other cruise line. Cruise eastbound or westbound. Go in the fall, spring or during the holidays. Take a brief cruise, exploring the canal's colossal set of locks at Gatun. Or take a longer transit, with itineraries that stop in the Caribbean and Central and South America.

Throughout your cruise enjoy a premium onboard experience featuring our Greenhouse Spa & Salon, Culinary Arts Center presented by Food & Wine Magazine, Exploration Cafe powered by The New York Times, Digital Workshop powered by Windows®. Feed your curiosity at our Exploration Speaker Series, which features experts on the history of the canal and the art, culture and wildlife of the region. All this, plus our award winning 5-star service and spacious accommodations.

Whether you choose our Sunfarer cruises or our longer Collectors' Voyage, Holland America Line has the perfect Panama Canal cruise vacation to satisfy your interests, schedule and budget. Ready when you are, with over 60 sailings, five luxurious ships and six convenient home ports.
