Pre-Register: Panama Canal Crossing
Sail to Cuba to discover the true depth and beauty of the once-forbidden destination. Explore Havana, a captivating city with an old-fashioned aesthetic. Then, sail across the Caribbean Sea to Colón. Nearby natural attractions beckon: consider exploring the lush rainforest and calm waters before crossing the Panama Canal into Puntarenas, where you can taste fresh seafood at the town’s coast-hugging cafés. The Christ of the Mercy statue welcomes from across the bay in San Juan del Sur while the following port, Puerto Quetzal, serves as a jumping off point to nearby attractions—including resilient Antigua, a colorful town with a significant history and breathtaking natural surroundings. Continue to Acapulco—a city that was once a magnet for celebrities, including Frank Sinatra, John Wayne, Elvis Presley, Elizabeth Taylor, and Judy Garland—and to Mazatlán, a long-known tourist destination that has a refurbished old town for a more historic and genuine appeal. Next, sail to Cabo San Lucas. Its beautiful rugged coast includes the often-photographed Land’s End, a rock formation shaped by the sea. Before ending your cruise in San Francisco, stop in San Diego, which boasts near-perfect weather, a beautiful coastline, and fascinating Spanish heritage.
