Tall ship sailing specialist Star Clippers is offering two opportunities to sail into the Panama Canal this year, the centenary of what’s been designated one of the seven wonders of the modern world. Both sailings will be on the four-masted Star Flyer as part of either a 14-day and a nine-day Caribbean cruise, in November.
Star Clippers’ two Panama Canal voyages are as follows:
· Star Flyer sails from Barbados to Balboa on November 9, calling at the Grenadines, Grenada, Venezuela, Curacao, Bonaire, Aruba, Cartagena and the San Blas archipelago, before entering the Canal as far as San Cristobal; from £2,795 for 14 nights, including full board on the ship and port taxes. Flights extra.
· Star Flyer then returns to her winter cruising base of Cienfuegos, Cuba, departing Balboa on November 23, sailing into the Panama Canal and then calling at ports in Colombia and the Cayman Islands as well as Casilda in Cuba (for the historic city of Trinidad). From £1,765 for nine nights, including full board on the ship and port taxes. Flights extra.
