In April of 2014, I took a 10-night Princess Cruise through the Panama Canal on the Island Princess.
I witnessed the engineering marvel known as the eighth wonder of the world: the mighty Panama Canal. The result of several nations’ historic efforts, the Panama Canal is truly a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, best experienced on an unforgettable journey with Princess Cruises, which was voted among the "Top 10 Medium Ship Cruise Lines" by readers of Conde Nast Traveler.
From the Panama Canal's opening day to present, nearly a million ships have passed through the mighty locks. Encompassing tragedy and triumph, Spanish kings, conquistadors and five different American presidents, the building of this massive project spanned 400 years.
