  • You'll arrive in San José and be met by your guide and transferred to your hotel for the night. The afternoon will be at leisure to relax and explore the city by foot.

  • You'll sail past Isla Negritas on your way to Manuel Antonio where you'll enjoy an optional tour of this famous wildlife reserve with your guide. After, the ship continues onto Playa Biesanz where you can swim in the bright blue waters of the Pacific Ocean.

  • The next day you'll arrive at Osa Peninsula, which is home to one of the Americas' best nature reserves, Corcovado National Park (an optional excursion). You could spend the day walking through the dense jungle in search of monkeys, macaws and the present but always elusive tapir. In the afternoon you can visit a nearby orchid sanctuary or swim in the protected bay.

  • You'll wake up in a new country, swimming and snorkeling in the morning in Granito de Oro, before sailing to nearby Coiba Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the largest island in Central America. You'll have a beachside barbecue lunch and afternoon to relax. Overnight at sea to Iguana Island, Panama.

  • Morning arrival at Iguana Island, a wildlife-rich territory, a bird-watching paradise, and key sanctuary for frigate birds. Snorkel the shallow reefs at the protected Isla Iguana Bay. Free time for swimming and snorkeling. You will see lots of colourful tropical fish, moray eels, rays and even turtles swimming in the warm Pacific waters. The island is a snorkeling and diving paradise as it has the biggest area of well-preserved coral reefs in the Gulf of Panama with 17 different coral species, more than 350 tropical fish species and over 200 species of invertebrates. Evening sailing to Playa Muerto/Darien National Park.

  • Today you arrive in Darien, the southernmost point of Panama where you'll have the option to visit the Darien National Park.

You'll return to the ship for lunch and sail to Panama City Flamenco Marina.

  • Today you'll have the option of enjoying a Panama City tour, where you'll discover the old Panama City, Casco Viejo, its architecture, cathedrals and historical buildings.

You'll cross the Pedro Miguel and Miraflores Locks before entering the Gatun Lake and cross the Gatun Locks.
