Ports of Call & Itinerary
Either before or after you have the time of your life on your cruise, you can discover all that Fort Lauderdale has to offer. Capture the sights of the Everglades, an expanse of swampland known for natural beauty and abundant wildlife, on a unique airboat; and witness the exotic wildlife of birds, fish and the infamous alligators. Experience the highlights of the newly designed beaches and cafes, including the Arts & Sciences District; stroll the historic Riverwalk; and shop the luxurious stores and boutiques on Las Olas Boulevard. Board a double-decker yacht or paddlewheeler-style boat and journey down the New River, out into the Intracoastal Waterway to Port Everglades, checking out the luxury houses and more.
Belize City, Belize
Belize is the second smallest country in Central America and the only English-speaking country in Central America. Bordered on the north by Mexico and to the east by the Caribbean sea, its coast has an almost unbroken line of reefs and small islands (cayes) extending for 150 miles that make up the longest reef system in the western hemisphere (and the second longest in the world), making it an incredible spot for snorkeling and diving. Several important Mayan sites on the mainland, such as Altun Ha and Xunantunich, make for excellent day trips. You can also opt for a relaxing day on a beautiful beach at Goff's Caye or, if you’re adventurous, you may be interested in cave tubing or zip lining. Belize is renowned for its extreme biodiversity and ecotourism, with excursions into unspoiled tropical rainforest, wildlife reserves and the largest cave system in Central America. Whether you want water, beach or jungle, Belize delivers memories that will last forever.
Costa Maya, Mexico
Puerto Costa Maya is an exclusive facility specifically built to accommodate cruise ship passengers. It is located on the Caribbean coast of the Mexican state of Quintana Roo. The state of Yucatán is to the north, Campeche is to the west and the country of Belize is to the south. Not far from the little fishing village of Majahual, the cruise complex offers passengers the opportunity to relax with a cool drink under a seaside cabana, swim in the refreshing waters of the saltwater pool, try the food at any of the different cafes or browse the numerous stores and shops. The cruise facility of Puerto Costa Maya, while facing the blue waters of the Caribbean, is surrounded by miles of flat, low lying forests. It is not the forest itself which is so interesting or attractive; rather what can be found in the forest which visitors who venture out will remember for a lifetime.
Just off the coast of the Mexican mainland, the porous mass of limestone that arches out of the water has over time become one of the world’s great ocean playgrounds. But Cozumel is about more than ethereal beaches: the island is ranked among the world’s premier dive and fishing spots. And a mere ferry ride away you can explore centuries of human splendor in the Mayan ruins at Tulum, spectacularly sited on the sea cliffs.
Surrounded by the gentle, translucent waters of the Bahamas chain lies the secluded island of CocoCay®, an eco-certified private destination. Reserved exclusively for cruise ship guests, this 140-acre tropical paradise was awarded a Gold-Level Eco-Certification by Sustainable Travel International™ for its environmentally friendly activities and tours. With its white-sand beaches and spectacular surroundings, CocoCay is a wonderland of adventures. Explore new aquatic facilities, nature trails and a ton of great places to just sit back, relax and enjoy a tropical drink.
