The Panama Canal was opened on August 15, 1914. It takes the force of gravity and approximately 52 million gallons of water to push a cruise ship through the locks. The Panama Canal is 50 miles long and has locks with walls 1,000 feet long and seven feet thick. The Miraflores and Pedro Miguel locks raise your cruise ship 85 feet via the winding, eight-mile Gaillard Cut into Gatun Lake. Sit on deck or have breakfast delivered to your cabin and enjoy the view from your private verandah.
