Los Angeles to New Orleans

The Panama Canal is considered one of the Wonders of the World. The engineering masterpiece is of mammoth proportion with 77 km of waterways connecting the Pacific with the Atlantic Ocean. Commence the cruise tour in Los Angeles boarding the Vision of the Seas, cruising south along the coast calling in at popular beach and surf ports along the way. We’ll visit Guatemala’s capital Antigua, and then make our way towards the Panama Canal, with a stop in Costa Rica. Once on the Caribbean Sea, we have time to stop in Colombia’s Cartagena, before cruising north to the buzzing and smooth music and art scene of New Orleans. Enjoy the culture of this vibrant city with two nights in the French Quarter with a walking culinary tour and a Jazz brunch.


This relaxed and exotic voyage on board Royal Caribbean’s Vision of the Seas offers fantastic onboard experiences including multiple dining venues, fantastic entertainment, and resort-style shipboard amenities.
