Most major cruise lines, including Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Princess and NCL (plus some smaller cruise lines) offer a few Panama Canal sailings each year, predominantly on repositioning cruises between the Caribbean and Alaska, Westbound/Northbound in the Spring, and Eastbound/Southbound in the Fall.
