We list here “Repositioning Cruises” Panama Canal 2014-2015 Spring and Fall transition voyages as lines, ships, destination and departure dates. Learn how to discern the regular one-way Panama Canal transition cruises from the authentic “relocation cruises” through Panama Canal.

Panama Canal Repositioning Cruises

Panama Canal cruise ships relocation

When talking about repositioning cruises through Panama Canal, the predicament here is that most of the Panama Canal cruises are transits (crossings with one-way itineraries). Panama Canal cruise ships are usually leaving either from Florida or California ports. Transition sailings usually last for about 2-weeks.

These are two special “Panama Canal ship relocation” hints for you (serving almost like shortcuts): the always funny one is “follow the money”, and the not so funny one is “mind the season”.

Repositioning Cruises Panama Canal

As to the money part, you’ll know the Panama Canal reposition cruises by their tickets prices. Deals will vary greatly (depending on line, ship and cabin category), but always with pleasantly low rates which could be easily defined as “top-luxury inexpensive to really really cheap”.

Know that with time prices on repositioning cruise deals (including on transition through Panama Canal) usually go down. But the economic law of “Supply And Demand” will always rule – cruise lines will price cruises and cabin categories accordingly. So good luck with those, and happy Panama Canal “reposition” vacations!
