Seabourn Legend; Panama Canal; Advice please

Jump to last reply

We (one quite elderly) have bitten the bullet and are going on the Seabourn Legend Panama Canal cruise (Costa Rica, Belize, Panama Canal) at the end of November.

This is a last minute booking and doesn't leave much time for planning, so we are looking for your advice especially with respect to shore excursions.

We depart from Fort Lauderdale and then head for Belize City, Hunting Cay (Belize), Roatan (Honduras), Puerto Moin (Costa Rica), Gamboa (Panama), Fuerte Amador (Panama), Puerto Quepos (Costa Rica), Playa Flamingo (Costa Rica), Caldera (Costa Rica) and San José (Costa Rica).

A general question is whether we should book independently or use the excursions offered by Seabourn ? If booking independently is better, then for what, and with whom ?

By way of activities I think we would enjoy, I include snorkelling (particularly at the Belize barrier reef), visiting Mayan ruins, nature walks (not too strenuous), barging or river cruising, local culture.

We are not great shoppers and don't like crowds or lots of noise.

What is the quality of the snorkelling gear on Seabourn ? Is it readily available or shold we bring our own (a pain, but can do if we hafta).

Many thanks.
