Panama Canal 2021-2022
Princess Cruises was the first cruise line to take passengers through the Panama Canal locks in 1967, bringing more passengers through the canal every year than any other cruise line and that legacy continues next year.
For the upcoming 2021/2022 season, three ships will sail the waters of the Panama Canal with 17 departures and four unique itineraries.
Voyages range from 10 to 15 days visiting 17 destinations in eight countries.
Key highlights include:
10-day Panama Canal sailing round-trip Ft. Lauderdale visits Costa Rica and Caribbean on Crown Princess giving guests the unique experience of transiting the new Panama Canal Agua Clara locks and relaxation on the Caribbean beaches.
Panama Canal Ocean to Ocean itineraries travel between Ft. Lauderdale to Los Angeles or San Francisco and vice versa sailing the new Panama Canal Locks. This itinerary allows guests a full transit experience while visiting ports in Mexico, South and Central America.
Additionally, Island Princess has two 14-day voyages from Ft. Lauderdale to Los Angeles which transit the historical locks.
