34 MEXICO, CUBA & THE PANAMA CANAL 5th January 2018 • 24 nights • Sails from Southampton (ends Callao) Black Watch • Cruise ID: W1802 • Newly-released With Cuba’s culture, Bermuda’s beaches and Ecuador’s national parks, there’s a string of unforgettable experiences awaiting you. Let Black Watch be your guide to discovering an incredible array of sights, from Mayan ruins and coral reefs, to picturesque lakes and exquisite architecture. After setting sail from Southampton, you’ll begin your holiday in the emerald-green Azores. First stop is Ponta Delgada, gateway to the extinct Sete Cidades Volcano and its picturesque crater lakes. Then it’s followed by Horta, an unspoilt treasure on the pretty island of Faial. Stunning landscapes surround this city – a mix of lakes, cliffs and valleys – as well as the intriguing volcanic structures, Caldeira and Capelinhos. Journey onwards to Bermuda and you’ll find some of the best beaches in the world. Blessed with soft pink sands and azure waters teeming with life, they’re a haven for snorkelers and sunbathers alike. The spectacular Crystal Caves – home to an array of crystallised stalactites and stalagmites – are also a must-see. What follows is sure to be one of the highlights of your cruise. The fabled city of Havana is doused in history, most notably from the Communist Revolution. It is home to exquisite architecture, colourful vintage cars and cobbled streets and squares alive with the irresistible rhythms of mambo. Take a stroll around UNESCO-listed Habana Vieja (Old Havana) to soak up the Latin atmosphere; see the city’s main sights from the back seat of a classic American car; or discover the history of rum and cigars – two products that Cuba is famed for. Cozumel then presents you with a plethora of sights, from Mayan ruins to coral reefs and sandy beaches. Extended tours offer the chance to step back in time on a visit to the Mayan city of Tulum, or see one of the New Seven Wonders of the World – the Pyramid of Kukulcan – in the legendary ruins of Chichén Itzá. Next Black Watch transits one of earth’s greatest engineering marvels, the Panama Canal, before heading to the Ecuadorean city of Manta – your final port of call. You can opt for a trip to Montecristi, home of the Panama Hat; or visit the tropical Pacoche Forest, which is bursting with flora and fauna. Enjoy all this before ending your adventure in Callao, Peru. Havana Panama hats Havana Chichén Itzá Visit fredolsencruises.com, contact your travel agent or call 0800 0355 072
