Central America & Panama Canal Cruises

Discover the latin countries of Central America and cruise the Panama Canal with Barrhead Travel's Central America cruise deals.

Linking North America to South America by land and the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific via the Panama Canal, the countries of Central America offer a vibrant mix of tropical sunshine, sandy beaches, verdant jungles and awe-inspiring mountain ranges.  You can enjoy a fantastic variety of activities on a Central American holiday, from superb diving and watersports to wildlife expeditions and discovering the history of the ancient Mayan civilisations.  You can set sail from Los Angeles, San Francisco or San Diego to discover the Mexican Riviera and ports such as Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta and Acapulco or cruise south from Miami or Fort Lauderdale to discover Honduras, Belize, Mexico's Yucatan Peninsular and the lush jungles and national parks of Costa Rica.
 

Many of the longer Central America cruises will also take you on a remarkable voyage through the Gatun Locks and one of the world's most incredible feats of engineering, the Panama Canal.  Panama Canal cruises generally take one of two forms - partial transits depart from North America's eastern seaboard and cruise to the entrance of the Panama Canal at Colon before returning.  Full transits of the Panama Canal can take over two weeks and sail from east to west, or vice versa.  Most full transits occur in sping or autumn when cruise ships are repositioning between the Caribbean and Alaska at the start or end of the summer season, or as part of a longer voyage such as a full world cruise.
