Highlights of this cruise:
Embark your ship today in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida’s upscale city of beautiful beaches and Venetian-style canals brimming with sophisticated eateries. Settle in to your veranda stateroom and take time to explore the promenade lined with swaying palms.
Discover the Mayan and colonial past of the island of Cozumel, located off Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. Explore the colorful streets of San Miguel or visit Mayan and Toltec ruins at San Gervasio to gain insight into the island’s ancient beliefs and customs. View the scenic lighthouse at Punta Sur and the many pristine beaches for which the island is world renowned.
Situated on the scenic Gulf of Nicoya, a shimmering expanse dotted with pristine islands and surrounded by Costa Rica’s tropical splendor, the former fishing village of Puntarenas is the gateway to magnificent beaches and rich wildlife. The port prospered on the shoulders of coffee barons as oxcarts delivered satchels of beans to the docks from the mountains. With the opening of a railroad in 1879, the oxcarts disappeared, but coffee remains Costa Rica’s major export. Today, Puntarenas retains its fishing heritage, as colorful boats in the harbor attest, and the lush rainforests nearby offer endless walking trails under a dense canopy rich in vegetation and echoing with the screeches of howler monkeys.
Cabo San Lucas
Anchor near the tip of the Baja Peninsula today for your visit to Cabo San Lucas, “Cabo” to its more frequent visitors. One of Mexico’s top destinations for its long beaches, resorts, scuba diving and picturesque rocky coast, it boasts one of the region’s most scenic harbors.
