Feel your ship rise 85 feet as water fills the locks on the Panama Canal, then listen as your Canal historian shares tales of the incredible engineering feat that divided two continents. Explore the intriguing lands, cultures and peoples of this amazing region. From engineering marvels to exotic wildlife, there’s so much to discover.
Holland America’s carefully crafted itineraries blend the region’s most popular ports with less-visited gems, such as Puerto Caldera, Coast Rica; Cartagena, Puerto Vallarta; and Oranjestad, Aruba.
Large enough to offer diverse amenities, yet never crowded, our ships are purposefully designed to accommodate fewer guests so there’s almost always a corner to call your own. You’ll also find coming and going from the ship is easy and convenient.
A team of world-class celebrity chefs is charting an exciting course and offering the most complete and immersive culinary experiences at sea. In the evening enjoy a variety of exclusive entertainment from Lincoln Center Stage to B.B. King’s Blues Club to America’s Test Kitchen’s live cooking shows.
Holland America’s EXC Tours connect you to each fascinating destination. At Gatún Lake, board a motor launch for a one-hour cruise and get a water-level view of the Gatún Locks. Watch for monkeys, toucans and sloths on the shoreline while you kayak through the Gatún islands. Encounter the Emberá Native people, known for handcrafted goods in the rainforests of the Panama.
