Enjoy the engineering marvel of the Panama Canal and the breathtaking beauty of Alaska on the 32-night ‘Panama Canal and Walls of Ice’ fly double-cruise and stay package. The trip starts in Australia on 6 April 2018 when passengers will fly to New Orleans and spend two nights in a four-star hotel before embarking on Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Pearl for back-to-back cruises.
The first port of call is the diver’s paradise of Roatan, home to some of the best pillar coral, marine life and beaches in the Caribbean. Next stop is Harvest Caye in Belize, another eco-tourist’s dream with jungles, rainforests and reefs.
After two days at sea, Norwegian Pearl visits the old walled city of Cartagena, Colombia. Passengers can delve into the history of conquistadors or shop along the cobblestone streets. The highlight of the voyage is sailing through the Panama Canal, followed by a day at sea.
In Costa Rica’s Puntarenas, stroll the seaport town to see multi-coloured cottages and local markets, or opt for a tour of San Jose. The next day Norwegian Pearl pulls into Nicaragua’s Corinto, close to beautiful beaches and one of the oldest Spanish settlements in the Americas. After delving in Guatemalan history in Puerto Quetzal, explore one of Mexico’s oldest coastal tourist destinations, Acapulco, and watch the legendary La Quebrada cliff divers.
A fun day is spent in the holiday hot spot of Cabo San Lucas, with a day at sea to recover before the excitement of Los Angeles.
