Cruise Information

Join us on our Third Annual Military Appreciation Cruise!  Our first trip was so successful that we’ve decided to make this an annual event but this time to a new destination – Panama Canal! Join other military and veteran couples and families for this scenic cruise full of historic sights and memorable adventures!   

A journey to the Panama Canal and its surrounding regions can be so much more than you ever imagined … visit lively colonial cities … explore stunning natural beauty … wander sun-drenched beaches … and traverse one of the great man-made marvels and become a part of its fabled history.

Sail between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans transitioning between all three sets of locks – Gatun Miraflores and Pedro Miguel. Explore and visit island gems in the Caribbean, lush rainforests in Central America, and the culturally diverse ports along the Pacific Coast.
