7-Night All LGBT Panama Canal Cruise on Royal Clipper, Nov 20-27, 2021
Brand g Vacations is proud to offer an LGBT+, inclusive, guaranteed full ship charter cruise through
the Panama Canal, an experience unlike any you’ll find on any other cruise ship.
We have chartered the Royal Clipper, the largest and only five-masted, full-rigged sailing ship. With a complement of 42 sails, the Royal Clipper is a splendid sight to behold. Experience the informal elegance, culinary delights, and gracious service in the intimacy of 227 LGBT+ friends.
This cruise departs from Panama City, Panama. The main attraction here is, of course, the Panama Canal, considered by many the eighth wonder of the world. The Panama Canal is a 48-mile-long corridor that connects the Atlantic Ocean (via the Caribbean Sea) to the Pacific Ocean.The canal cuts across the Isthmus of Panama and is a key conduit for international maritime trade. On your Panama Canal cruise, join other passengers on the decks as a canal historian explains the workings of the locks and points out sights along the way.
The cruise ends in Oranjestad, Aruba. The island is a surprising mix of soft, white-sand beaches and desert; Dutch heritage and influences from nearby Venezuela.
Laugh. Dance. Smile. Relax on this unforgettable adventure of the senses.
