Named one of the seven modern wonders of the world by the American Society of Civil Engineers, the Panama Canal is a 77 km ship canal in Panama that joins the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and is a key conduit for international maritime trade. Built from 1903 to 1914, nearly 850,000 vessels have passed through the canal. Interestingly, the 8-10 hour journey from the Pacific Ocean in the west and the Atlantic Ocean in the east is one from SE to NW. Crossing the Canal is something that we would all like to experience, and subsequently many passenger ships provide a narrator giving excellent information during the crossing.

Of particular note is the man-made Gatun Lake, to the south of Colon, on the Atlantic side of Panama. It forms a major part of the canal, carrying ships for 33 km of their transit across the Isthmus of Panama. At the time it was created, Gatun Lake was the largest man-made lake in the world, and the dam was the largest dam on Earth. While the majority of the landscape is ‘just trees’, this is essential as the trees draw the rainfall, the rainfall feeds the lake, and the lake water gravitates down into the locks. Subsequently, no pumping is required to fill the locks, and they empty into the oceans.

It is truly amazing to see how the locks fill and the big ships pass serenely between green lush mountains. The largest cruise ships to cross the canal are Costa Delizioso and Costa Luminosa (at 92,700 GT). With the Panama Canal Expansion project to be completed mid-2016, ships as large as Celebrity Solstice (at 121,878 GT) and maybe Queen Mary 2 (at 148,528 GT) could cross. It all depends on whether the ship can clear the Bridge of the Americas. Revenues from the expansion will transform Panama into a First World country. (Norwegian Pearl paid USD 375,600 to cross in April 2010.)
