Few experiences can match one of the world’s most dramatic voyages, a cruise from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic through one of the greatest man-made wonders of the world, the ingenious Panama Canal. Having celebrated its centennial anniversary just a few years ago, this marvel of engineering and 50-mile passage through the narrow isthmus of Panama continues to astonish even today’s most veteran traveler.
