Panama Canal

Does anyone know of a cruise or boat trip that just does the Panama Canal and not the various cruise stops that the cruise boats do.

We'd like to fly in, do the Panama and fly out :):)

Eden, go to and do a search there. I seem to recall that there was one company that starts in Colon, Panama, went into the canal and came back. Maybe one that departs in Costa Rica. I understand that Colon is neither cheap or safe place to get to from US.

Pacific Queen/Pacific Princess/something similar. There are a couple of others. All looked pretty grubby, maybe a hundred people jamming the rails like sardines. I have the impression they make a double transit in a long day, but that idea doesn't match the length/speed. I'd also bet they could get screwed up by water conservation measures for Gatun Lake.
