SeaDream Yacht Club said that its 112-passenger SeaDream I for the first time will transit the Panama Canal in 2013.
The ship will sail a 10-day positioning cruise from Barbados on Nov. 9, 2013, to Panama City.
Following the transit, the SeaDream I will be based in Caldera, Costa Rica, where it will operate a series of seven-day cruises along Costa Rica’s west coast.
Naturalists will be onboard for all of the Costa Rica sailings, said the luxury line.
Port calls in Costa Rica will include Golfito, Drake Bay, Isa del Cano, Quepos and the Tortuga Islands. The ship also will visit Isla de Coiba, Panama; and San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua.
A two-night pre- or post-cruise package is available.
