Ports of Call
Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (Embark and Debark) - There is an abundance of things to see and do in the Ft. Lauderdale area: visit the newly redesigned Ft. Lauderdale Beach and cafes, stroll the historic Riverwalk, shop the luxurious stores on Las Olas Boulevard or adventure to the Everglades for an intriguing air boat excursion.
Cartagena, Colombia - The oldest city in the New World, founded in 1533. Through its portals once poured the wealth of the Spanish Main... Mother lodes of gold, silver and emeralds bound for Madrid. See San Felipe, the fortress that guarded it all, then plunder the dazzling Bocagrande, where emeralds still gleam.
Colon, Panama - Set at the Caribbean end of the Canal, Colon is your portal to the massive Gatun Locks; and a visit to the Gatun Yacht Club for a rare experience - swim in the Canal.
Gatun Lake - Formed by an earthen dam, one of the largest artificial lakes in the world at 23.5 miles long.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas - When was the last time you whiled away the day on a private Caribbean island? Here's your chance. The island is ours; the day is yours to sun, swim, and sail. Enjoy!
Oranjestad, Aruba - A Dutch jewel with a tropical touch. In Oranjestad, Aruba's capital, explore the colorful floating market and Nassaustraat, brimming with quaint shops. Head for the beach where water sports abound: snorkeling, rides on glass bottom boats and submarines. Or venture into the countryside to see the haunts of the huge green parakeet, the unique rock gardens of Casi Bari, the curious divi divi tree, forever bending in the tradewind breezes
Puerto Limon, Costa Rica - Surrounded by nearly half of all the animal species on earth and 8,000 species of plants, marvel as you tour tropical flower farms or ride a Mawamba boat through the jungle canals. Or choose to stroll through the markets bursting with color in San Jose
Willemstad, Curacao - An isle of Dutch treats: gabled storybook houses, duty-free Delftware, the famous Curacao orange flavored liqueur

TravelSafe.comPlease visit TravelSafe.com for travel insurance information.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link above. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.
