Discover the Panama Canal, Star Clippers hottest destination in 2015 with 25% off Panama sailings

October 6, 2014 Cruise Deals No Comments Email Email

Sixty million pounds of dynamite helped create the Panama Canal, designated as one of the “Seven Wonders of the Modern World” and a “Monument of the Millennium” by the American Society of Civil Engineers.

The Panama Canal is more than a great manufacturing achievement, it also offers some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. See this spectacle with Star Clippers who are offering 25% off the regular price of departures on 14 night itinerary Barbados to Panama and the 14 night itinerary Panama to Cienfuegos.

Panama is the only place in the world where you can see the sun rise on the Pacific and set on the Atlantic, and whilst travelling with Star Clippers you can sit back and enjoy this spectacular phenomenon from the comfort of a luxury tall ship. Take in destinations such as the Sans Blas Islands, filled with over 300 species of birds including nearly 200 species of forest birds and in the channels of San Cristobal and El Pozo estuaries you will find the Boat Billed heron, the Great Blue heron, Roseate spoonbill, woodpeckers, parrots as well as turtles, iguanas and crocodiles.unnamed (7)

The vivid colours of the wildlife inspire the fanciful birds, fish and animals in brilliant reds, oranges, blues and greens that decorate the intricately appliquéd molas created by the indigenous Kuna women. Stroll along the throat of Panama’s dramatically beautiful Kuna Yala coast, and discover how the remoteness of these coral atolls protects an independent people who prize their communal culture with its rich oral history and artistic heritage. 

Wander along the piers of Balboa, the port marking the Pacific terminus of the Panama Canal, and look upon yachts from every corner of the globe. Balboa was built to house American administrative headquarters for the Canal and visitors still can admire many of the handsome examples of the American colonial style architecture of the early 1900s. 

Panama isn’t just about a tropical paradise and a historical route for sailings however, its lush jungles, picturesque beaches and colonial ports are the backdrop to a history of piracy, gold and plunder on the Spanish Main. These are just some of the places Star Clippers’ elegant tall ships will take you to whilst the waves gently lap against a wind driven hull and you look out upon secluded islands filled with some of the world’s most colourful histories.

Star Clippers’ Star Flyer luxury tall ships embody a new age of sailing, where the traditions of the past are happily married to the comforts and amenities of the present day. Star Flyers have been created for luxury-loving passengers who also enjoy the traditions and romance of the legendary era of tall sailing ships.
