Panama Canal

Norwegian Cruise Line on the Norwegian Dawn

December 1 - 15, 2019

15 Days / 14 Nights

(Tampa Roundtrip)

Day 1

Tampa, Florida ~ 4:00 PM

Tampa, nicknamed "The Big Guava", is so much more than merely home to Busch Gardens (one of the most popular theme parks in Florida). The Ybor City district is alive with history, shopping and fine dining. The Tampa Museum of Art and the Museum of Science and Industry are also must-sees.

 

Day 2

Key West, Florida ~ 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM

Located at the southernmost tip of the United States, this cool little island hideaway is closer to Havana, Cuba, than it is to Miami.

Day 3

At Sea

Extensively refurbished from top to bottom, Norwegian Dawn offers the ultimate Freestyle cruising experience. Dine in Los Lobos Cantina, an upscale Mexican restaurant only available on Norwegian Dawn. Drop by The Cellars, a Michael Mondavi Family Wine Bar for a wine tasting. Or take lady luck for a spin in The Dawn Club Casino. Offering a wide range of spacious accommodations, there’s rooms to fit every size family and budget. Let Norwegian Dawn whisk you away to Bermuda, Canada & New England, and The Caribbean.

 

Day 4

Falmouth, Jamaica ~ 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM

With white sandy beaches, crystal clear water and blue skies, it’s easy to relax in Jamaica. Aside from breathtaking beaches, Falmouth is also known for its 19th century Georgian architecture. The most popular dish on the island is cooked with jerk. Jerk, native to Jamaica, is a zesty mixture of spices that’s used as a rub to flavor meats, seafood and shellfish.

 

Day 5

At Sea

 

Day 6

Santa Marta, Colombia ~ 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Admire the stunning bays of Santa Marta and popular beaches. Explore the ancient cultures of the Taironas who occupied the land thousands of years ago. Stroll over to the Cathedral and admire its beautiful architecture and learn about its history.

 

Day 7

Cartagena, Colombia ~ 7:00 AM - 2:00 PM

The old walled city of Cartagena reflects a turbulent history of conquistadors and pirates. Climb "las murallas" for an unforgettable view of the harbor. Shop for emeralds and leather goods along the cobblestone streets of this enchanting city. 

 

Day 8

Panama Canal/Gatun Lake, Panama ~ 5:00 AM - 3:00 PM

When you book an overland journey on your partial transit of the Panama Canal, you’ll really travel like the jetsetters do. Depart from Miami and sail through the Caribbean entrance of this maritime marvel. Once we arrive at Gatun Lake, booked shore excursion guests can disembark for an unforgettable adventure that not only promises beautiful scenery and wonderful photo ops, but an exciting jaunt to Colón, where guests will resume their cruise back aboard the ship. How’s that for excitement? Please note, only booked shore excursion guests can disembark at Gatun Lake. But everyone is welcome to explore at our port-of-call in Colón.

 

Colon, Panama ~ 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Sail into the Caribbean seaport of Colón and grab a good spot on deck so you can take in the view. What a picture it is. Behold the Atlantic Ocean entrance to the famous Panama Canal. Born from a desire to get to California (and its Gold Rush) as fast as possible, this industrious town was the last stop on the 19th century Panama Railroad. It’s now home to Canal Zones, U.S. military bases and of course, beauty.

 

Day 9

Puerto Limon, Costa Rica ~ 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Puerto Limón is known for its multi-cultural community and a festive annual carnaval celebration. In recent years the area has become even better known as must-see stop for eco-tourists. The region's unique geography and neo-tropical climate combined with abundant rainforests make for one of the most naturally diverse "biospheres" in the world. And you can take advantage of national parks and reserves in all directions from Limón. Pay close attention when you dock as many guests have reported seeing peaceful sloths lumbering in the trees right in port!

Day 11

Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

Beautiful and unspoiled, Roatan is a peaceful, eco-tourist's dream, just 30 miles off the coast of Honduras.
