Day 1 – COLÓN
Embarkation from 16H00 to 17H00. Departure at 18H00.
Colón is the second largest city in Panama, at the Caribbean entrance of the Panama Canal. Colón is today an important port, and the free trade zone created in 1953 contributed greatly to the development of the city.  Colón was founded in 1850 by Americans working on the Panama railroad connecting the Atlantic and Pacific coasts through the isthmus of Panama; the city rapidly overshadowed the older Caribbean ports of Panama when the canal opened.
  
Day 2 – CORN ISLAND
 
Day 3 – AT SEA
During your day at sea, make the most of the many services and activities on board. Treat yourself to a moment of relaxation in the spa or stay in shape in the fitness centre. Depending on the season, let yourself be tempted by the swimming pool or a spot of sunbathing. This day without a port of call will also be an opportunity to enjoy the conferences or shows proposed on board, to do some shopping in the boutique or to meet the PONANT photographers in their dedicated space. As for lovers of the open sea, they will be able to visit the ship’s upper deck to admire the spectacle of the waves and perhaps be lucky enough to observer marine species. A truly enchanted interlude, combining comfort, rest and entertainment.

The ultimate symbol of Florida if ever there was one, to this day Miami remains a must-see city. The home of what is considered to be the world’s busiest cruise ship port, this multicultural city where the sun rules supreme has a lot more to offer than just long beaches and glamour. Miami is also worth visiting for its Art Deco district in South Beach, home to pastel-coloured buildings and to hotels with eccentric shapes. Artists, designers and top couturiers enliven this multifaceted city of skyscrapers, boutiques, frescoes and turquoise water. Not far from there is Everglades National Park, the largest subtropical wilderness reserve in North America, listed with UNESCO.

From Panama to the United States, PONANT is inviting you to discover no fewer than 7 countries during a single cruise. Join us aboard Le Boréal for an all-new and exciting 12-day itinerary.  

On the first leg of your trip, you will sail up the east coast of Central America from Colon, at the Atlantic entrance to the mythical Panama Canal.

Discover Belize, a small paradise covered in tropical rainforest. Its coast gives onto the Caribbean Sea and is home to a very large barrier reef, as well as the spectacular Blue Hole, one of the world’s top scuba diving spots.

Le Boréal will then sail northward to call at Progreso, the departure point of an unforgettable excursion to Chichen Itza or Uxmal, two sites with must-see vestiges of Pre-Columbian civilisation.

In Key West, stroll through the lively streets of this island which Ernest Hemingway used to visit, and enjoy the bohemian atmosphere of this wonderful place, which boasts idyllic beaches.
