Setting sail from Willemstad
The gabled houses of Willemstad lend an undeniably Dutch feel to the capital of little Curaçao, with a splash of Caribbean colour thrown in. The island itself is not your typical lush tropical paradise - the landscape is characterised instead by thorny shrubs and cacti - but there are some fantastic beaches and quaint little villages.
Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba: Kralendijk (Bonaire)
The quiet, cactus-covered Dutch Caribbean island of Bonaire is internationally renowned for its diving, ringed by spectacular coral reefs that teem with life. The capital, Kralendijk, is home to some pretty colonial architecture, and the island is also known for its flamingos and pink sand beaches.
The tiny Dutch Caribbean island of Aruba, located just off the coast of Venezuela, lies outside of the hurricane belt, meaning it enjoys a largely dry climate, and boasts some of the best beaches in the region, if not the world.
Cartagena was founded by Spanish conquistadors in 1533, and the beautifully preserved centre is a real highlight of Colombia’s Caribbean coast. The walled old town, the Ciudad Amurallada, is a camera-friendly collection of cobbled streets and colourful, colonial-era buildings.
Situated at the Atlantic entrance to the Panama Canal, Colón is not somewhere you will want to hang around for long, and serves merely as a gateway to the Canal, which will carry you to much nicer places.
Panama: Pearl Islands
Panama: Coiba Island
Costa Rica: Golfito
Costa Rica: Corcovado National Park
Staggering biodiversity and an array of iconic species make Corcovado National Park a must-see for any visitor to Costa Rica. Tapirs, anteaters, scarlet macaws, howler monkeys and the world’s largest bird of prey, the harpy eagle, can all be found within this rainforest reserve.
Costa Rica: Tortuga Island
Tortuga Island is actually made up of two separate islands just off the coast of the Nicoya Peninsula, both uninhabited and both absolutely stunning. Enjoy swimming and snorkelling in the clear, coral-rich waters, or relax on pristine white sand beaches.
Costa Rica: Quepos
The little town of Quepos is the gateway to Manuel Antonio National Park, a nature-lover’s paradise that’s home to monkeys, iguanas and the reclusive three-toed sloth. The area around Quepos also boasts some of the best beaches in Costa Rica, and the town itself has some nice restaurants.
Costa Rica: Playas del Coco
31 December - 1 January
Puerto Rico: San Juan
Founded by the Spanish in 1521, Puerto Rico’s capital is the second oldest European settlement in the Americas. Modern San Juan is a bustling city, home to over a third of the island’s population, but the cobbled streets of the Old Town remain the biggest tourist draw.
Arriving in Puntarenas
Your home form home
Introduced to accompany Sea Cloud I, this three-masted barque tall ship enjoys the amenities of a modern cruise ship whilst remaining a quintessential windjammer.
What we love
A true sailing ship, Sea Cloud II has all of the tradition of the ship that inspired her, the original Sea Cloud. Suites and cabins have the feel of a traditional country home and on deck you can relax and watch the crew set sail, a wonderful spectacle that is much more than just a show.
