We've been watching this programme, and see that the next showing is this Thursday, August 5th.
It's on Travel Channel, Sky 251, at 9pm... or 10pm on Travel +.
They go from the Pacific, through the Panama Canal to the Caribbean. Haven't seen it all, but the bits we glimpsed seemed very good.
I believe Spirit of Adventure is the Saga ship for over 21s....am I right?

We've only watched the 1st half, so far, but the passengers certainly looked WELL over 21!
Again...isn't this the line where everything, even trips, is included- except alcohol? I think we've had a brochure.

Yes - everything is included and that also means wine with your lunch and dinner. Why pay over inflated prices and sail on something that is so big it has to berth in a container dock. Not our idea of fun. We had the best cruise ever and enjoyed it so much we booked again and again and again! Oh, and there were a few thirty years olds but mainly people in their fifties who were returning SofA enthusiasts and a hefty number of professionals at that.

The Programme blurb says:-
Cruising the Spirit of Adventure
To most, cruising immediately brings to mind huge ships touring the Mediterranean or the Caribbean. However, there are numerous other, smaller cruise ships whose size allows them to venture into smaller ports and waterways. The Spirit of Adventure is one such ship and Chris Serle jumps aboard and takes the opportunity to explore the delights of Costa Rica, Panama and the San Blas islands in the Caribbean. Alongside sampling life onboard, Chris fits in a visit to the Panamanian rain forest, passes through the historic Panama Canal and takes a train trip to the wildlife reserve of the Tortuguero Canals. It sounds like The Spirit of Adventure is aptly named.
