Day 1

Montego Bay, Jamaica

Jamaica’s bubbly side is on show in Montego Bay. This lively north-coast town has a strip full of reggae bars and Caribbean restaurants, and you can dip in and out for rum cocktails and jerk chicken. Montego Bay’s biggest pull, though, is its coastline. The shores here are bracketed by clear blue waves and coconut palms.

Day 2

At Sea

 

Day 3

Puerto Limon, Costa Rica

t’s claimed Costa Ricans are the happiest people in the world. Take one look at their country, and you’ll see just how much they’ve got to smile about. A blend of rainforests, wildlife and sun-baked sands, it showcases the best of Latin America’s natural beauty. It’s also one of the few places in the world where you can be flying through the jungle on a zip-liner one minute, and riding horseback in the mountains the next.

Day 4

Colon, Panama

Colon is a crumbling Colonial district, full of faded grand mansions and pastel-painted warehouses. It’s also your gateway to one of the most famous landmarks in the world, Panama Canal. This enormous waterway bridges the 48-mile gap between the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans, and gives cargo ships a helping hand on their around-the-world voyages.

Day 5

Cartagena, Colombia

Colombia’s second-oldest city is home to the only walled town in the Americas. It was originally built to protect Cartagena against pirates, and it cocoons cobbled alleyways, cottages painted in rainbow colours, and buildings that have stood for centuries. The Colonial cathedrals alone are worth bringing your camera for.

Day 6

Santa Marta, Colombia

Colombia’s oldest town was founded by the Spanish all the way back in 1525. The first thing you’ll notice is the picture-perfect coastline. Cue ice-white sands and glass-clear waters backed by South America’s second-largest mountain range. Away from the beach, the town’s colourful houses and lively reggae bars offer up plenty in the way of Latino spirit.

At Sea

 

Day 8

Montego Bay, Jamaica

Jamaica’s bubbly side is on show in Montego Bay. This lively north-coast town has a strip full of reggae bars and Caribbean restaurants, and you can dip in and out for rum cocktails and jerk chicken. Montego Bay’s biggest pull, though, is its coastline. The shores here are bracketed by clear blue waves and coconut palms.

Day 9

Georgetown, Cayman Islands ⚓

The best bits of the Cayman Islands are condensed around Georgetown. As you might expect from the capital of an island chain, the city is well stocked with snorkelling and scuba shops, Caribbean restaurants, and rum bars. But the jewel in Georgetown’s crown lies a few miles down the coast – Seven Mile Beach is arguably one of the best stretches of sand in the Caribbean. And, because it’s not privately owned, you can walk from one end to the next, completely freely.

Day 10

At Sea

 

Days 11 - 12

Havana, Cuba (overnight)

It’s hard to do Havana justice in words. It’s a city that feels like a film set, thanks to its vintage Cadillacs and candy-coloured old town. Sitting still simply isn’t an option in Cuba’s capital – there’s so much to see. It’s packed with 19th-century cigar factories, Renaissance mansions, and galleries telling the story of the Revolution. And, at night, the city transforms into a haze of mojitos and salsa music.

Day 13

Cozumel, Mexico

This little slice of Mexico is anchored just off the mainland, which means it comes complete with all the Caribbean stereotypes. Long ribbons of white sand are pinned down with nodding palms, while the impossibly clear seas surrounding the island have been a favourite with scuba divers for decades. Inland, meanwhile, ancient Mayan temples and café-lined plazas vie for your attention.

Day 14

At Sea

 

Day 15

Montego Bay, Jamaica

Jamaica’s bubbly side is on show in Montego Bay. This lively north-coast town has a strip full of reggae bars and Caribbean restaurants, and you can dip in and out for rum cocktails and jerk chicken. Montego Bay’s biggest pull, though, is its coastline. The shores here are bracketed by clear blue waves and coconut palms.

Marella Discovery 2 joined the Marella Cruises fleet in May 2017. Marella Discovery 2 is the sister ship to Marella Discovery so their onboard set up is very similar. Having two ships means you’ll be able to pair a wider choice of itineraries with the exciting features offered by this larger, more contemporary style of vessel. These include an outdoor cinema, a rock climbing wall, a minigolf course, an indoor pool and a glossy atrium. Not to mention the range of bars, excellent dining scene and night-time shows enhanced by up-to-the-minute technology. Just like Marella Discovery, Marella Discovery 2 will be All Inclusive as standard. So, drinks, including prosecco and cider, meals in a selection of restaurants and most onboard activities are included in the cruise price. Flights and tips are both part of the package, too.
