Panama Canal: Panama to Antigua

  • Day 1 - Balboa (Panama)

    Embark Star Clipper in Balboa.

  • Day 2 - Panama Canal Transit

    Transit the Panama Canal.

  • Day 3 - San Blas Archipelago

    The vivid colors of the San Blas Islands are undoubtedly the inspiration for the fanciful birds, fish and animals in brilliant reds, oranges, blues and greens that decorate the intricately appliquéd molas created by the indigenous Kuna women. Strung along the throat of Panama's dramatically beautiful Kuna Yala coast, the remoteness of these coral atolls protects an independent people who prize their communal culture with its rich oral history and artistic heritage.

  • Day 4 - At sea

    Enjoy the ship's facilities on a relaxing day at sea

  • Day 5 - Cartagena (Colombia)

    Cartagena is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Located on the north coast of Colombia, Cartagena host a spectacular collection of buildings and massive fortifications dating from the early 1600's. The Fortresses were built to protect Cartagena from pirates. City highlights include Saint Philip of Barajas Fortresses and the Fort Ferdinand Fort.

  • Day 6 - Santa Marta (Colombia)

    Santa Marta is the oldest city in Colombia. It's beautiful beaches are backed by the stunning mountains of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta Range. Tayrona National Park is a great place to explore ancient ruins amidst the lush mangrove forests. Enjoy a meal in one of the many cafes that serve meals that combine a fusion of Latin American, Caribbean and European flavours.

  • Day 7 - At sea

    Enjoy the ship's facilities on a relaxing day at sea

  • Day 8 - Oranjestad (Aruba)

    Bon boni means welcome in the local dialect, Papiamento, and it's universally understood by all who visit little Aruba. Just 15 miles from Venezuela, this almost independent nation still has a ceremonial Dutch Governor General. Once it depended on oil for income, but tourism is the new king. No wonder Aruba's endless beaches and spectacular diving are too tempting to pass up.

  • Day 9 - Willemstad (Curacao)

    The gabled houses and warehouses of Dutch colonial Willemstad march in tight formation along the entrance to St. Anna Bay, an incongruous vision of a tropical Amsterdam where the floating market sells mangos and papayas instead of tulips. In Curacao's interior cunucu, a few Dutch landhuis or farm owners still wrest a living by ranching on the near-desert soil.

  • Day 10 - Kralendijk (Bonaire)

    Pink flamingoes, divi-divi trees, Papiamento and the best diving in the Caribbean - You can only be in Bonaire. The blinding white salt flats of Bonaire were once marked by tall obelisks of red, white, blue and orange (the colours of the old Dutch flag) to guide mariners. Today they are marked by clouds of pink - enormous flocks (500 or more!) of fluttering flamingoes feasting on the orange brine shrimp that gives the flamingoes their unmistakable colour.

  • Day 11 - 12 - At sea

    Enjoy the ship's facilities on relaxing days at sea

  • Day 13 - Basseterre - South Friars Bay (St Kitts)

    St. Kitts' was the first successful colony in the British West Indies. Shop in colourful Basseterre, play golf and tour old plantation houses. For the adventuresome there's a brisk hike through the rainforest.

  • Day 14 - Gustavia (St Barts)

    In its elegant little capital of Gustavia, French joie de vivre is tempered by Swedish spic and span neatness. Diversions include duty-free shopping in exquisite boutiques, beautiful beaches, excellent dining and people-watching.

  • Day 15 - St John's (Antigua)

    Disembark Star Clipper in Antigua
