Panama Canal 

Princess Cruises® on the

Island Princess®

October 7 - 17, 2019
11 Days / 10 Nights

(Roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale, FL)

Day 1

Fort Lauderdale, Florida ~ Depart 4:00 PM

This city sits 24 miles north of Miami and is named after a series of forts built by the United States during the second Seminole War. The forts took their name from Major William Lauderdale, who was the commander of the detachment of soldiers who built the first fort. Look hard and you might find remnants of three of them today. More people seem to be interested in taking a water tour aboard the "Carrie B." 


Day 3

At Sea

When we say our food is designed for fresh, we truly mean it!  Breads are baked 24-7, sauces made from scratch using the finest ingredients, steaks aged and hand cut on board and homemade ice cream every day. It’s the heart and soul of our cuisine, and you’ll taste it in every bite.


Day 4

Amber Cover, Dominican Republic ~ 7:00 am - 4:00 pm

Tucked on the north coast of the Dominican Republic, Amber Cove sits just seven miles from the town Puerto Plata, which boasts a playground of activities that's fun for everyone in the family. Go for a swim with the dolphins, take to the high seas on a luxury catamaran, explore the 450-year-old San Felipe Fortress, ride on a cable car 2,500 feet to the top of Mount Isabel de Torres for a look at its massive statue of Christ, swing through the trees on a zip line or relax with a quiet picnic on the beach. Whether you prefer your adventures fast and furious or slow and steady, you're sure to find paradise in Amber Cove.


Day 5

Cartagena, Colombia ~ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

One of the more interesting cities on your itinerary steeped in history. This was the transit port for all the wealth Spain derived from South America. The famous "Old City" is comprised of 12 square blocks filled with attractions, boutiques and restaurants. 

Throughout Colombia, the Spanish Empire's influence in the New World is self-evident. Its fortress walls, quaint narrow streets, and balconied houses are all vivid reminders of Spain's hold on Cartagena and throughout the Caribbean and South America. This is the land of El Dorado and flamboyant adventurers in search of the ever-elusive gold. Cartagena's well-constructed fortifications defended its borders against seafaring pirates whose attacks lasted for more than 200 years. Today this modern and bustling city, seaport, and commercial center still boasts much of its original colonial architecture. Your journey here will provide you with a significant link to the region's grand past.


Day 6

Cristobal, Panama ~ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The narrow isthmus separating the Atlantic from the Pacific Ocean had a colorful and turbulent history long before Ferdinand de Lessups first dreamed of building a transcontinental canal. Spanish conquistadores hauled Incan gold through the dense rain forest to ports on the Atlantic. English freebooters sought to ransack those ports and attack the treasure ships that sailed from Portobelo. And 49ers braved mosquitoes and yellow fever to get to the California goldfields. While the Panama Canal remains one of the great American engineering feats of the 20th century, visitors to Panama will discover a whole range of scenic wonders. Explore historic old Portobelo. Hike into the dense rain forest, home to over 1,000 species of animals. Or pay a visit to an Embera Indian village in the heart of Chagres National Park. After your ship completes her transit of the Gatun Locks, Princess shore excursion passengers only disembark via ship's tender service. The ship then retraces her route through the locks to dock at Cristobal. All remaining passengers disembark there, where they may explore the dockside attractions.

    Day 7

    Limon, Costa Rica ~ 7:00 AM - 6:00 PM

    Costa Rica's Limon Province boasts pristine beaches, sprawling banana plantations and dense rainforest.

    These Caribbean lowlands are still sparsely populated--nearly a third of the province's population lives around Puerto Limon--and conservation efforts have led to growing eco-tourism. Limon Province offers other charms as well. Afro-Caribbean influences abound, from the lilting speech and reggae rhythms brought by Jamaican settlers to the colorful bungalows lining small fishing villages. Limon is a zesty little slice of heaven.


    Day 8

    At Sea


    Day 9

    Falmouth, Jamaica ~ 7:00 AM - 3:00 PM

    Falmouth is the chief town and capital of the parish of Trelawny in Jamaica. It is situated on Jamaica's north coast 18 miles east of Montego Bay. It is noted for being one of the Caribbean's best-preserved Georgian towns. Founded by Thomas Reid in 1769, Falmouth flourished as a market centre and port for forty years at a time when Jamaica was the world's leading sugar producer. It was named after Falmouth, Cornwall in the United Kingdom, the birthplace of Sir William Trelawny, the Governor of Jamaica, who was instrumental in its establishment. The town was meticulously planned from the start, with wide streets in a regular grid, adequate water supply, and public buildings. It even had piped water before New York City.
