Sail on the M/S Panorama, a three-masted motorsailer which can accommodate up to 49 passengers in 24 cabins, where guests are well looked after by the staff, well known for its one-to-two, crew-to-passenger ratio. The small-ship setting fosters socializing with an on-board community of like-minded people, whether it’s at the deck bar or through the open-seated dining set up. Experience a harmonious balance between conventional cruising and private yachting, along with an exciting voyage of discovery.

The Variety Cruise's mega yacht experience takes you through the beautiful Pacific Ocean coastline of Costa Rica and Panama, where you’ll visit the historical San Lorenzo Spanish Forts, snorkel in the little paradise island of Restingue, and explore Darien National Park where you’ll be welcomed by Embera Indians, one of the seven indigenous groups living in Panama.

Variety Cruises, based in Athens, Greece, is a leader in defining the small ship cruise experience, operating a fleet of 11 fully owned vessels with a maximum of 72 passengers.
