Embark Black Watch in Peru for a holiday of a lifetime and you’ll discover cultural gems, historic highlights and experience scenic wonders galore during a relaxing and memorable journey back to the UK, sailing via a string of captivating cities and beautiful islands in the Americas.[ReadMoreMob]

After joining your smaller ship in Callao, this rewarding cruise adventure begins in memorable fashion, with four days to relax, settle into life on board and experience the magic of ocean cruising, and with a transit of the magnificent Panama Canal – one of the world’s greatest engineering feats. Then, in Costa Rica, you’ve a day to explore historic Puerto Limón’s bustling markets, charming historic streets and gorgeous Caribbean coastline; before it’s on to the Colombian city of Cartagena de Indias. Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, which overlooks the city, is a fine example of the colonial Spanish structures to uncover here.[ReadMoreDesk]

Sailing away from the mainland, the Mexican island of Cozumel awaits. Promises of Mayan history and marine life-rich lagoons are sure to tempt you into seeking out ancient ruins and shrines dedicated to Ixchel, or going in search of dolphins, iguanas and coral reefs. Continuing onward to Cuba, an overnight stay in Havana will be an undoubted highlight of your holiday. You could dance the rumba, mambo and cha cha with indomitable Cuban spirit, indulge with traditional rum and cigars, or see the sights from the back of an iconic American classic car – experiences that offer an authentic taste of local life. Your time in the Americas will then conclude in the Caribbean, stopping in the Bahamas and Bermuda to sample paradise amongst beautiful beaches, warm crystal-clear waters and laid-back cities alive with colourful culture. When you finally head for home, you’ll cross the Atlantic – one of the great ocean cruise experiences – and stop at São Miguel in the verdant Azores, and add the Spanish style and culture of La Coruña to the end of your journey too.
