Behold the coastal seascapes of Central America from the newly updated M/S Panorama.

Relaunched in 2014, the M/S Panorama offers the highest standards of comfort, safety and sustainability that Central American cruising has to offer. This three-masted Motor Sailer maintains a cruising speed of 11 knots, and with a maximum capacity of 49 guests, there’s no danger of overcrowding the small port towns we visit. The size of the Panorama also leaves a smaller footprint, making your trip a greener alternative to the hulking mega-liners. We can pull right into port, so you’ll be able to step on and off the Panorama at your leisure, and with the swimming platform in the rear, the ocean is mere steps away.

Ship features

The Panorama accommodates 49 guests in 25 cabins, with a crew of up to 18. Relax with your fellow passengers on the upper deck in the indoor/outdoor bar and lounge, or recline on a chair on the sundeck with a book from the library and a cool drink in hand. The indoor lounge has floor-to-ceiling windows so you’ll never miss a sight on the Central American coast.
