PORTS OF CALL. Roundtrip Ft. Lauderdale, visit colorful islands and tropical rainforests,
sail through the new expanded Agua Clara Locks or the historic Gatun Locks, scenic cruising through Gatun Lake.
According to the popular 1960 beach movie, Fort Lauderdale is "where the boys are." The city's
reputation as America's Spring Break capital, however, has been replaced with the more favorable image of a prime family
tourist destination, attracting more than 10 million visitors annually. The most popular beach resort in Florida is even more
rightly famed as the "Yachting Capital of the World," with more than 40,000 registered crafts calling its waters
home. The city also prides itself on being the "Venice of America" with more than 300 miles of navigable waterways.
Fort Lauderdale boasts world-class theaters, museums, sightseeing, and shopping.
Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands. The Caymans are a Caribbean demi-paradise
of white-sand beaches, coral gardens, and offshore waters harboring spectacular shipwrecks. Grand Cayman,
Cayman Brac and Little Cayman also boast the highest standard of living in the entire Caribbean. This union of natural beauty
and cosmopolitan style makes Grand Cayman a spectacular port of call for today's adventurers.
Cartagena, Colombia. One of the more interesting cities on your
itinerary steeped in history. This was the transit port for all the wealth Spain derived from South America. The famous "Old
City" is comprised of 12 square blocks filled with attractions, boutiques and restaurants. Throughout Colombia, the Spanish Empire's influence in the New World is self-evident. Its fortress walls, quaint
narrow streets, and balconied houses are all vivid reminders of Spain's hold on Cartagena and throughout the Caribbean
and South America. Your journey here will provide you with a significant link to the region's grand
Panama Canal (Scenic Cruising), Panama & Colon, Panama.
The Panama Canal remains one of the great American engineering feats of the 20th century and just completed
a major expansion project in June 2016. The Panama Canal expansion project, also called
the Third Set of Locks Project, doubled the capacity of the Panama
adding a new lane of traffic allowing for a larger number of ships, and increasing the width and depth of the lanes and locks
allowing larger ships to pass. The Panama Canal Authority assigns specific time slots for the transit of a vessel through
the locks. The ship will anchor in a designated area and will wait for instructions. Once clearance is transmitted to the
ship, procedures begin to bring ship's tour passengers ashore. Disembarkation in Gatun Lake is restricted
to passengers who have booked the following tours only: PC1-100, PC1-110, PC1-115, PC1-120, PC1-125, PC1-170, PC1-175, PC1-210,
PC1-350, PC1-385, PC1-605, PC1-610, & PC1-615. Passengers on these tours are taken ashore by tenders. Later in the day,
the ship then retraces her route through the Gatun locks to dock at Pier 6 in Colon. The tours return to this point. All remaining
passengers are able to disembark in Colon, where they may explore the dockside shops. There are no tours offered in Colon.
Limon, Costa Rica. Costa Rica's Limon Province boasts pristine
beaches, sprawling banana plantations and dense rainforest. These Caribbean lowlands are still
sparsely populated--nearly a third of the province's population lives around Puerto Limon--and conservation efforts have
led to growing eco-tourism. Limon Province offers other charms as well. Afro-Caribbean influences abound, from the lilting
speech and reggae rhythms brought by Jamaican settlers to the colorful bungalows lining small fishing villages. Limon is a
zesty little slice of heaven.
Falmouth is the chief town and capital of the parish of Trelawny in Jamaica. It is situated
on Jamaica's north coast 18 miles east of Montego Bay. It is noted for being one of the Caribbean's best-preserved Georgian towns.
Founded by Thomas Reid in 1769, Falmouth flourished as a market centre and port for forty years at a time when Jamaica
was the world's leading sugar producer. The town was meticulously planned from the start, with wide streets in a regular
grid, adequate water supply, and public buildings. It even had piped water before New York City.
