Princess sets cruises featuring new Panama Canal locks

Caribbean Princess will operate partial transits of the new locks on 10-day round-trips from Fort Lauderdale
The 2017/18 season will be the first for Princess Cruises to transit the new Panama Canal locks. Caribbean Princess will operate partial transits on 10-day voyages round-trip from Fort Lauderdale.

Meanwhile, Coral Princess, Island Princess and Pacific Princess will sail ocean to ocean with full transits through all three sets of the traditional Canal locks—Gatun, Pedro Miguel and Miraflores.

Coral Princess will offer an extra day at Fuerte Amador so passengers can explore Panama City.

'Connoisseur' cruises on Pacific Princess comprise a 17-day itinerary with a call at the less-frequented port of Santa Marta, Colombia.

And Island Princess will sail round-trip Los Angeles departures that transit through the Pedro Miguel and Miraflores locks.
