Default What temperature to expect on Panama-Western Carribean cruis

Wondering what kind of clothes to take for 10 day trip? Does anyone know what the average highs and lows are? Hate to pack a lot of unnecessary clothing but don't want to be cold!!

You'll need both. The ship is cool. Especially at night.

Panama and the canal are located 9 degrees north of the equator. No matter what time of year, it will be hot and humid. Indoors on the ship in the a/c, bring a sweater or wrap to wear. I wore long sleeves and was comfortable as long as I was inside the ship.

Everyone above is correct - pack as you would for any Caribbean cruise. The sun in the Canal can be brutal as you're moving so slowly.

If this is your first Canal trip, you will love it! There is something truly awe-inspiring about the Canal....so much history and so much human sacrifice to build it. If you can, get the book, "The Path Between the Seas" and read it.

Bon Voyage!
