Not many ships stop there now, I recently read on this board where the Veendam (HAL) was making a stop/s there. The San Blas Islands are probably a little too far for the time you have in a port call. I'm not sure how it is handled now, but when I was there you used to have to get a flight to Povenir which I believe is on the mainland and catch a boat to the Islands. I think if you were able to jump through all those hoops your time there would be minimal.Thanks! We were lucky enough to anchor right at the islands and tender in. The natives were beautiful and their clothing and needlwork were outstanding. We took a dug-out canoe around the islands as an ecursion, then hung out on two of them for shopping in the little stalls and talking to the Cuna indians. Gosh it's gorgeous there, so remote and yet so close.
