    Other departure dates

    Embark for an exceptional cruise from Colon to Lisbonne on board LE BORÉAL and be carried away from clear waters of Panama to the magnificent caribbean coasts.

    Aboard Le Boréal, set off to discover these unique places worthy of the most beautiful postcards, where mingle the colour palettes of the golden or black sand beaches, the crystal clear water of the cascades and the turquoise of the sea. The landscapes are colourful, the sun is ever-present, and you’ll feel like home is another world away as you look out at these beautiful shorelines lined with lush vegetation.

    Discover St Lucia located at the heart of the Caribbean, with its lush and untamed vegetation lies like a jewel in the turquoise seas of the island chain. Hilly and covered with tropical rainforest, the island is home to two volcanic peaks which loom over the sea like two sugar loaves, near Soufriere.

    Fort de France will surprise you with its effervescent glow. At sunrise, the markets come alive as the aroma of spices, fruit and vegetables fill the streets. An amazing blend of modern architecture and colorful Creole villas, the city’s colonial past has preserved a number of monuments worthy of interest, like the St Louis Cathedral with its magnificent stained glass windows.

    Emabarkation 12/04/2017 from 16H00 to 17H00 . Departure 12/04/2017 at 18H00 .

    Colón is the second largest city in Panama, at the Caribbean entrance of the Panama Canal. Colón is today an important port, and the free trade zone created in 1953 contributed greatly to the development of the city.  Colón was founded in 1850 by Americans working on the Panama railroad connecting the Atlantic and Pacific coasts through the isthmus of Panama; the city rapidly overshadowed the older Caribbean ports of Panama when the canal opened.

    Founded in 1522 at the time of the conquistadors, Cartagena has preserved the traces of its rich colonial past. Its imposing ramparts are further proof of the tumultuous history of this city. As the site for storing the gold looted from the Aztec and Inca empires before it was taken to Spain, the city was also frequently the target of pirates and privateers. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, the romanticism of this city with its narrow streets and colourful façades will not fail to charm you.

    Fort de France

    Disembarkation 19/04/2017 at 07H00 .

    Located on the western coast of Martinique, Fort-de-France will amaze you by the splendour of its bay, a magnificent cut-out in the coastline, considered as one of the most beautiful in the world. At the harbour mouth, on its strip of land, fort Saint-Louis overlooks the capital city of Martinique. If you climb up to it, you can see some breath-taking views. Saint Louis Cathedral and the Schoelcher library bear witness to a secular history, intimately linked to the island’s story. Why not try some fresh coconut at the colourful Grand Marché. Two really pleasant places you can take a breather in, right in the heart of the city, are the garden of Balata and the Aimé Césaire park.
