Some 200,000 tourists aboard some 80 cruises are estimated to arrive in Panama, at the Colon 2000 port, when the 2018 season begins in September. The cruise season is revived in the month of September and takes a lot of force in the months of October, November and December. In the calendar of the Port of Cruceros Colon 2000 there are 80 cruises for these months.

It is estimated that approximately 200,000 tourists go down to meet the Gatun and Agua Clara locks on the Atlantic side of the Canal. In addition to shopping and ecotourism tours. The star cruise of this cruise port is still the Monarch of Pullmantur that schedules at least 16 departures from the Colonian port. The Monarch has become one of the main tourist products of Latin America because it allows tourists from Central and South America to know a destination as coveted as the ports of the Caribbean. Experts in tourism point out that the geographic position of Panama, its numerous air connections, thanks to its flagship Copa Airlines facilitate the arrival of tourists who want to make trips on cruises.

The calendar of the end of the year 2018 is adorned with arrivals of cruises like the Infinity of Celebrity Cruises, the Island Princess, the Norwegian Pearl that also bring American, English, and German cruisers. In November, 31 cruises and another 30 cruises are expected in December. It is expected to create a very large calendar for the first four months of next year 2019.
