Day 14 - Daylight Panama Canal Transit
The Panama Canal is an incredible feat of engineering, joining the Atlantic and Pacific. It was the Spanish who first explored the idea of a canal in 1534, but at that time the task seemed impossible and it was over 300 years later before the efforts of the French commenced, brimming with confidence from the previous completion of the Suez Canal. Unfortunately a combination of mismanagement and tropical disease forced the company into financial ruin, with the project far from completion and the deaths of thousands of men. This task was taken up by the American Government in 1904 and over the course of ten years the canal was finally completed and stands today as both an engineering and economic marvel, and offers travellers a unique and highly sought-after experience during a cruise through the huge system of locks. The Canal is surrounded by lush tropical rainforest and you will be able to see the native wildlife as the cruise passes by. Take your place on deck, camera in hand, as you embark on one of the greatest cruising experiences.
Day 15 - Cartagena, Colombia
Discover the ancient walled city within the dazzling Spanish port of Cartagena, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore the narrow streets to find pretty plazas and old mansions with ornate balconies. The city’s 17th century fortress was built to protect the port from pirates, considered the most outstanding feat of Spanish military in the New World, and the macabre Palace of Inquisition where people were judged for crimes against the Catholic faith but innocence was never recognised.
