Panama Canal Cruise with Central America /contentlibrary/titantravel/data-tags/journey-pace/pace1verticalwhite.png

We Love

Watching as our ship navigates the Panama Canal, one of the world’s great waterways. Exploring Costa Rica’s national parks - gushing waterfalls, volcanoes and an abundance of wildlife. Visiting Puerto Vallarta and its well-preserved colonial-era charm.


Sailing along the Panama Canal isn’t all about magnificent locks; its construction also included vast lakes that have since grown into successful sanctuaries for hundreds of animal and plant species. On this cruise we’ll sail from Florida to California by way of the Canal itself, calling at fascinating stops as we go. The Dutch island of Aruba in the sparkling Caribbean is first, before a number of Central American treasures including wildlife-rich Costa Rica and the colonial wonders of Puerto Vallarta.
