    The highlights of this cruise

    The narrow stretch of land connecting North and South America offers plenty of history and unspoilt beauty – and this is already in evidence in tiny BELIZE. The Mayan world once stretched as far as the coast here and its important trading centre, Altun Ha*, still lets you catch a glimpse of its former riches. HONDURAS is also proud of its heritage: from PUERTO CORTES, the tracks of the mysterious Mayans take you into the jungle, to the hieroglyphic stairway at Copan*. Christmas 2017 promises to be just as unforgettable: the place where Columbus reached the mainland in 1502 is now the site of TRUJILLO which, with its colonial heritage and Caribbean beaches, is a great place to spend a relaxing Christmas Day.

    Unspoilt, colourful and friendly – this is also the kind of welcome you will receive in Panama, in the laid-back province of BOCAS DEL TORO. A modern contrast is provided by the Gatun Locks*, which the EUROPA will negotiate on the following morning as we enter the PANAMA CANAL. On the Pacific side of the canal, the skyscrapers of PANAMA CITY* rise up into the sky. The canal brought wealth to the capital city, and along the Cinta Costera, you can enjoy both the skyline and some of the local specialities. The Casco Viejo* with its pretty collection of decorative buildings, picturesque churches and presidential palace, stands as testament to the city’s heyday in the Spanish colonial era.

    As the year draws to a close, COSTA RICA shows off a magnificent display of flora and fauna that is sure to rival any fireworks. Almost a third of the country is a designated conservation area, protecting its unique diversity for future generations. As soon as you reach PUNTARENAS, the thick mangroves of the Rio Tarcoles* are a good place to look for red macaws, crocodiles and howler monkeys. And if you fancy gliding through the lush leafy forest, an exciting canopy tour* will provide you with a unique opportunity. The next day, ease yourself in to the new year on the PENINSULA PAPAGAYO, where tropical forests and white sandy beaches are a picture of paradise. In neighbouring NICARAGUA, you can set out from SAN JUAN DEL SUR to visit the Masaya Volcano*, which the natives call the “burning mountain”. The area around its steaming cone is now one of the country’s most impressive national parks.

    To round off your cruise, PUERTO QUETZAL offers you the choice of following once again in the footsteps of the Maya to the Tikal National Park* or discovering a true colonial gem: in the hills of GUATEMALA lies Antigua* – the former Spanish colonial capital and now a beautifully preserved UNESCO World Heritage Site. After one last day at sea, it will be time to say goodbye in ACAPULCO.

    * The shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. Subject to change.
