The complimentary pre- or post-Panama extension (depending on voyage direction) will feature two momentous occasions in the city. First stop is the much anticipated Biomuseo, which will have a “soft opening” in October, and its official launch in 2014. Designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry in consultation with scientists at the nearby Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, the museum’s exhibits encompass over 43,000 square feet in eight display galleries and portray the history of the isthmus and the species it engendered.
From there, guests will take in the newly completed Observation Center at the Panama Canal’s expanded third lock, which will be in prime construction phase. This is an unprecedented opportunity to view the construction of a major canal system that is destined to alter the global shipping world. Once the Canal is operational in 2015, this insider’s view will be history.
The extension includes one night at the Marriott-Panama hotel, lunch at the Miraflores locks, dinner with a traditional dance performance, all transfers, entrance fees and guides. Guests may experience the extension for the remainder of the 2014 season at the rate of $450 per person based on double occupancy and $520 per person based on single occupancy.
