We landed in Miami Airport & stopped over night at the InterContinental Hotel close by, the following morning we took a coach ride about 45 mins to Fort Lauderdale where we boarded the Princess cruise ship on the cruise we visted Aruba, Cartagena, Costa Rica, Panama Canel & Gatun Lake & Jamaica. There is lots of birds & wildlife to be seen in all the countries visited, but beware if you have visited Florida or been on a Carribean cruise there will be a certain amout of over lap of birds, still very nice to see again but if you are looking for lifers there will be a lot of birds you have seen before, I have attached a list of what we saw.
