From an open deck just feet above the mighty Panama Canal, watch vessels pass through the mighty Miraflores Lock immediately below. This exclusive vantage point is yours when you add our Panama Canal extension before or after your expedition cruise. Witness at close range how the locks move to lift and lower ships as you capture photos of this engineering marvel—the hinge between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans—in action. You'll also get an expertly guided tour of the recently completed Canal Expansion Observation Center at the canal's new third lock, which will facilitate the passage of larger ships. A tour of the new Biomuseo (Museum of Biodiversity) designed by world-renowned American architect, Frank Gehry, concludes your Panama City visit.
