Panama Canal Cruise Itinerary

Start your holiday with two nights in Los Angeles, included as part of your My Cruises exclusive Panama Canal cruise deal! There is so much to do in LA you won’t know where to start! Catch a few rays on Venice Beach, shop until you drop on Rodeo Drive, or study the stars at the Planetarium. Check out the film studio schedules before you go and become part of the audience to watch your favourite TV show being filmed live! After two days exploring the city it is time to board the Norwegian Jewel and begin your NCL Cruise.
Day two will be spent on board, cruising towards our first stop in Mexico, Cabo San Lucas. Use today to explore the ship, take a leisurely lunch and get ready for tomorrows adventure!
The Norwegian Jewel will anchor just off shore in Cabo and you will take a short launch ride to the small port, from here it is just a 10-minute walk into town. There are plenty of shore excursions to choose from including whale watching, snorkelling, fishing and jet skiing! If you would prefer to entertain yourself head to Playa El Medano, Cabo’s main beach and enjoy lunch while doing a bit of celeb spotting. Or perhaps venture to the very end of the Baja peninsula to Lovers Beach and ‘El Arco’, Cabo’s iconic natural arch.
Back on board for day four of your cruise. Read a book by the pool, watch some live comedy, or work up an appetite in the Body Waves Fitness Centre.
Beunos Dias Acapulco! A popular destination with jet-setters since the 1950’s this stunning bay, backed by the Sierra Madre del Sur Mountains, was once a favourite of Frank Sinatra, Elvis and John Wayne. Still a celeb hot spot head to The Diamante, where Oprah and Sylvester Stallone have their holiday homes! Don’t miss the world famous La Quebrada Cliff Diving Performances in which divers will descend 40m into a small cove. To get the best view grab a table on the veranda of the Hotel El Mirador.
Day 6 is a great day to try that speciality restaurant you have been eyeing up, treat yourself to a glass of bubbly at Magnum’s Champagne Bar, or have a soak in one of the ships 6 Jacuzzis!
Welcome to Guatemala! Ask your My Cruises consultant about adding the Colonial Antigua shore excursion to your cruise deal! This fantastic tour includes lunch at a traditional Guatemalan restaurant, a walking tour through the cobblestone streets of Antigua a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a visit to the cathedral and the Jade Museum.
Puntarenas in Costa Rica is our next stop, well-known for its fantastic rainforest, volcano and coffee plantation tours! The wildlife and natural scenery in Costa Rica is outstanding, keep an eye out for butterflies, birds and monkeys to name a few!
During the journey from Costa Rica to the Panama Canal take a walk on the jogging track, try your hand a poker in the casino or spoil yourself with a spa treatment in the Mandara Spa.
Known as the world’s biggest short cut, the Panama Canal joins the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean. Started by the French and completed by the USA on Panama’s land, the 48-mile canal was opened just over 100 years ago in 1914. Since then over 1-million ships have used the short cut. On your journey through the canal you will be able to see how the series of locks slowly elevate the ship up through the canal and back down again on the other side.
Welcome to Columbia! Cartagena is a centuries-old colonial walled town with a fascinating history of explorers, invasions and pirates. A mix of charming cobbled streets and open-air cafes in the old town, typical South American chaos in the outer-town and modern, luxurious restaurants along the Bocagrande – Cartagena’s fashionable beach-front district.
Enjoy your last two days aboard the Norwegian Jewel! Soak up that last bit of Caribbean sun at the Topsiders Bar, spend time with the kids on the water slides or play a game of tennis on the top deck. After all that activity you will need a bit of pampering, book in to the Spa Thermal Suite and relax in the Thalasso Therapy Pool, take a steam or sweat out all those mojitos in the sauna!
Back in Miami it is time to disembark the Norwegian Jewel after your Panama Canal Cruise, packed full of culture, history and total relaxation. Enjoy the next two nights in Miami courtesy of your My Cruises exclusive deal!
