As early as Columbus, man was intent on finding a sea-level shortcut between the
Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans.
By creating artificial lakes and immense lift-locks the Americans performed, in 1914, one of history’s greatest engineering feats. To experience the Canal is memorable. The scenery at the 8th Wonder of the World is enchanting, not to mention the intricate workings of the locks.
We will sail round-trip from Fort Lauderdale via the “Path Between the Seas”, for a partial transit aboard the Caribbean Princess. Princess Cruises, whose ships are among the most beautiful and hospitable, was one of the first cruise lines to traverse the canal. Their ships are luxurious, floating resorts with all of the comforts and pleasures of a deluxe resort hotel. Facilities include swimming pools, a spa with sauna and massage and aerobics and dance classes. Enjoy the commentary on each port on your in-cabin entertainment system, or relax in one of the luxurious lounges with expansive windows and watch some of the world's most dramatic scenery glide by.
The chefs on Princess Cruises are renowned for their wide array of international cuisine, and the service is unsurpassed. As for entertainment, there are elegant cocktail lounges, first run films, a casino and Broadway style entertainment.
The staterooms have TV with in-house movies, climate control, fridge, phone, safe, spacious closets and a private bathroom. Mini-suites have a comfortable sitting area and a large private balcony.
