Where in the world: 10-day Panama Canal Cruise
Book by: Until Sold Out
Departure Dates: September – January
Cost: $799pp for two or $389 for four
Why I Like It: This cruise is discounted $330pp, plus includes special dining for two ($70 value). Best deal is the 3rd and 4th guests in the stateroom are FREE! So two pay and two more go free! So if you do the math and divide the cost by four, that’s only $389pp! This breaks down to just $39 a day! But with all the amenities on this ship, you won’t be spending much time in your room! This will sell out fast so be sure to act fast if interested. Be sure to mention Promo Code TZ8917. Please note that there is a Panama Canal tax that is not included in this price. This price is only for select departure dates. Other dates are $899pp and up.

About the Panama Canal: It is one of the greatest engineering feats of the 20th century and serves to connect 160 countries and 1,700 ports around the world. The Panama Canal is an artificial 48-mile waterway in Panama that connects the Atlantic Ocean with the Pacific Ocean. The canal cuts across the Isthmus of Panama and is a key conduit for international maritime trade. There are locks at each end to lift ships up to Gatun Lake, an artificial lake created to reduce the amount of excavation work required for the canal, 26 metres above sea level, and then lower the ships at the other end. The original locks are 33.5 metres wide. A third, wider lane of locks was constructed between September 2007 and May 2016. The expanded canal began commercial operation on June 26, 2016. The new locks allow transit of larger, Post-Panamax ships, capable of handling more cargo.
