Caribbean and Panama Canal cruises
Let yourself be whisked to a land of palm trees, rum and crystal-clear waters as you sail from Miami to some of the Caribbean’s hidden gems onboard Seabourn Ovation.
There's the tiny Iles des Saintes, historic Antigua - home of the British fleet during the days of Nelson - and Spanish San Juan with its brooding medieval fortress and cobbled streets.
At Jost Van Dyke island in the British Virgin Islands (named after a former pirate!) you'll experience Seabourn’s signature Caviar in the Surf beach party which pretty much does what it says on the tin - guests wade into the sea and sup on iced champagne and caviar at a surfboard bar. Plus, there's a lavish barbecue lunch, water sports, music and ample time to soak up the sun on a white-sandy beach.
Transiting the Panama Canal, a modern marvel that bridges two oceans and two continents, is a unique experience. Prepare to be amazed as your cruise ship is raised and lowered by giant locks while you learn about the history of this impressive feat of engineering.
On Mexico's Yucatan peninsula, immerse yourself in the country's resorts, cuisine and archaeological treasures before discovering Costa Rica, Panama and Belize, with a chance to enter the canal’s first locks and sail Gatun Lake. You'll then return to Miami via laid-back Key West.
