Germany to NY via Panama?

I'm trying to locate a passenger list for my German ancestors that immigrated to NYC between 1857 - 1860. I found one record that I think may be them, but it's for a ship coming from Panama into NY. I'm positive that they never lived in Panama.

I can't think of any reason why a passenger ship from Germany headed to NY would go through Panama. Does anyone know why that might have been the case?

Thank You,
