New for 2020, Pearl Seas Cruises announces a spectacular 7-night Panama Canal Cruise aboard the only fully stabilized small ship in the region. Beginning this December, Pearl Seas will once again offer its popular Panama Canal cruises along a newly imagined itinerary–delivering the most exciting exploration of the Panama Canal available.
Pearl’s Panama Canal Cruises offer a once in a lifetime experience to travel the entire length of the Panama Canal–one of the greatest engineering marvels in modern history. Guests will relish this rare up-close passing, as they cruise between the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans, in complete comfort aboard the Pearl Mist, the Line’s all-private balcony, fully stabilized, 210-passenger ship.
Pearl’s 7-Night Panama Canal Cruises make ports stops in: Cartagena; San Blas Islands; Gatun Lake, Panama Canal; Las Perlas Archipelago; and Panama City. 2020 cruises depart from both Cartagena and Panama City and guests can enjoy a Complimentary Pre-Cruise stay in Cartagena, or Panama City, as well as a post-cruise stay packages in both cities.
In December 2020, Pearl’s first Panama Canal Cruise guests will begin their journey in Cartagena, Colombia, a former center of commerce for the Colonial Spanish Empire and today, a beautifully preserved city with castles, cobblestone streets, and colorful architecture. The cruise sails through the San Blas Islands and visits Colon, the city at the Atlantic’s entrance to Gatun Lake and the Panama Canal.
Cruising through this region aboard the Pearl Mist is the most amazing way to explore it. As the Pearl Mist navigates Gatun Lake and the Panama Canal, guests can view the canal’s massive lock system up close for a front row view of one of the seven wonders of the modern world. The Pearl Mist’s all private balcony staterooms with full size sliding glass doors offer a private sanctuary for guests to experience this amazing environment. Only the fully stabilized Pearl Mist offers the smooth sailing advantages of the large ships while also providing the access and intimate exploration advantages only possible on a small ship.
Pearl’s Panama Canal Cruise also sails through the Las Perlas Archipelago, with a stop on Contadora Island, a popular tourist destination. The amazing new voyage concludes in Panama City, where guests can explore the Casco Viejo, the old city, built in 1674 and accented with French and Spanish Colonial style architecture.
