The 48-person carriages offer spacious leather seats for maximum comfort, individual dining tables and panoramic windows to admire the spectacular scenery en-route. Upon arrival to Machu Picchu town you will be meet by a representative who will escort you to the bus that will take you to the 25-minute ride to "Lost City of the Incas" which was discovered by American explorer Hiram Bingham in 1911. Located on the left bank of the Urubamba/Vilcanota River lies the wonderful old city of Machu Picchu, which in Quechua translates to "Old Mountain". According to research, Machu Picchu was one of the vacation residences of Pachacutec, the Incan emperor who reigned between 1438 and 1470. However, some of its finest buildings and the evident ceremonial purpose of the main access road to the village, prove that it was used as a religious shrine. Machu Picchu is considered a masterpiece of both architecture and engineering due to its unique architectural and landscaping features. Prominent constructions among its buildings are the Main Square, the Royal Quarters, the Temple of the Three Windows, the Circular Towers, the Sacred Sun Dial and the Burial Grounds, to name but a few. Listen in awe as your guide gives you all the need-to-know information about this splendid Sanctuary.

Transfer back to the airport for a return flight back to Lima. Upon arrival transfer to the port and embark Silver Moon for your 16-night South American Holiday cruise
Callao is the port for Lima, located six miles (about ten kilometres) from the city centre. Lima, 'the City of Kings’ was founded in 1535 following the early-16th century conquest by Spain of the indigenous Inca civilization. It became the effective capital of the Viceroyalty of Peru, established seven years later. In 1821, General San Martin declared the independence of Peru from Spain. Eventually, the city became the gateway to the rest of the country. Today, a visit to Lima may serve as a unique Peruvian experience that offers a glimpse into the Andean world, Spanish tradition and the country’s modern aspect.

Salaverry is the port for Trujillo, Peru’s third largest city. Located about nine hours north of Lima, Trujillo was founded in 1534 by the Spanish conquistador Pizarro. The attractive, colonial city retains much of its original charm with elegant casonas, or mansions, lining the streets.

The second major jumping off point for the Galapagos Islands after Quito, this is a little city with a big heart. A sea port first and foremost, the city’s personality has been founded on that, and all the better it is for it too. Almost Caribbean in feeling, the clement climate coupled with the intermingling rhythms floating from the windows and abundance of fresh seafood make this a very tropical destination. View less Once not even considered by the travel books as a potential destination in its own right, the city has undergone something of a resurgence in the past few years. Proud Guayaquileños will not hestitate to point out the Malecón or the exciting new riverfront promenade, once a no-go area after dark, now happily (and hippily) lined with museums, restaurants, shops, and ongoing entertainment. The new airport and urban transportation network are also lauded to the happy tourists who find themselves here. As the largest and most populous city in Ecuador as well as being the commercial centre, it would only be natural that the city would have some kind of modern architecture, but it is the colourful favelas, or to use their real name guasmos, that cling to the side of the hillside like limpets that really catch your eye. A blend of old and new, the first inhabitants can be traced back to 1948 when the government cleared the area for affordable housing, these shanty towns are witness to the social and political particularities that Guayaquil has faced in the past.

Expect incredible morning views as you arrive into the port for Panama City. Tinged with a silver pre-dawn light, the city will metamorphosise into a golden glow as the sun rises above it. And from then on expect one stunning view after another. Very interesting in its own right, Fuerte Amador is obviously overshadowed by its proximity to Panama City. So should the Miraflores museum of the Canal, which offers a comprehensive and immersive tour of the Canal including a 3-D experience, four exhibition halls, an observation deck, and a surprisingly good restaurant not interest you then there is always the option of lovely Casco Viejo – literally the old quartier of Panama. The grand old colonial houses, cobbled streets, independent boutiques and buzzing street scene make this a must stop on your itinerary. And if you like seafood, you will not want miss the many restaurants and market stalls serving different variations of so-fresh-it’s-still-practically-swimming ceviche. Best eaten like the Panamanians do, with salty crackers and a cold beer on the beach. And if money is no object, a cup of geisha coffee – supposedly the world’s best and definitely the world’s most expensive at $7 a shot is definitely a pick me up! Cool cosmopolitan capital aside, Panama has a skyscraper filled skyline that is worthy of some of its North American counterparts. But if urban utopia is not your scene then fear not, the sandy beaches and lush rainforests are never more than a short cab ride away.

Panama Canal Transit
Enter the mighty Panama Canal, one of history’s most ambitious and spectacular stretches of waterway. Connecting the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, and slicing through the heart of a continent, the canal is a staggering engineering triumph, eliminating the need to traverse the treacherous waters of South America and Cape Horn. Sail one of the world’s great canals to appreciate the true scale of this achievement, as your ship manoeuvres between its vast, gushing locks and huge lakes. View less The French began construction in 1881, but the costly project was left abandoned and unfinished until the United States finally completed the work in 1914. Following the path of the Panama Railway of 1855, locks raise ships large and small 26 metres up above sea level to the canal’s elevated channel. New locks have recently been added, which allow the canal to accommodate ever bigger ships. Leaving the confinement of the locks, you will enter the canal’s channel, to sail through Panama’s core. Wide lakes are linked by painstakingly chiselled wedges of canal, which slice through the lush scenery. Look out for the Culebra Cut section, the most challenging stretch of the entire route to construct. The Bridge of the Americas is a vast arched landmark, which sweeps across the Pacific Entrance and was completed in 1962. It’s one of several huge bridges that you will sail below on the 51-mile journey, including the much newer Centennial Bridge, and the Atlantic Bridge, which spans the entrance close to Colon.

Puerto Limon, Costa Rica
Puerto Limon, once an important banana port, is the capital of Costa Rica's Limon Province on the Caribbean coast. The town offers few sights, but serves mainly as a gateway to Costa Rica's rugged wilderness. Costa Rica's capital, San José, is a good two and a half-hour drive from Puerto Limon. When Columbus discovered Costa Rica during his last voyage, rumors of vast gold treasures led to the name of Costa Rica (Rich Coast). The Spaniards settled in the Central Valley; additional immigrants from northern Spain increased their numbers considerably. The local Indian population was soon greatly diminished due to diseases brought by the settlers. In 1821 the country declared independence from Spain. In an effort to create a source for revenue, coffee was introduced from Panama in 1791. The government offered free land to coffee growers, thus building up a peasant landowning class. The first coffee exports were carried on mule-back to the ports; by 1846 oxcarts were used to transport the coffee to Puntarenas. A few years later, there was a large flow of coffee to overseas markets, which was facilitated by the opening of a railway from San Jose to Puerto Limon on the Caribbean. Later a railway was built to the Pacific port of Puntarenas. Today, the country's economy is based on the export of coffee, bananas, meat, sugar and cocoa. Tourists particularly enjoy the country's well-kept national parks and nature reserves that have been established to protect the extremely varied Costa Rican ecosystems, such as the few remaining patches of the dry tropical forest and the unique cloud forest.

Roatan Island, Honduras
The Island of Roatan is filled with pristine beaches, amazing jungle-covered hills, and heartwarming people with a unique blend of cultures. This island paradise is world renowned for its diving and endless water activities. Roatan, a mere 28 miles long and an average of four miles wide is the most developed of the Bay Islands chain located just 40 miles northeast of mainland Honduras. This Caribbean secret is steeped in culture and history and lies just 100 yards off shore to one of the world's largest barrier reef. There are countless opportunities to view the abundant species of coral, tropical fish and aquatic animals. The friendly English-speaking population offers a unique blend of African, Spanish, Paya Indian and British cultures. British and Spanish settlers invaded the Paya as their respective countries fought over possession of Roatan in the 16th century. Soon after, pirates numbering nearly 5,000, including Henry Morgan, claimed Roatan as their stronghold. During the height of the slave trade, Roatan became a dumping ground for rebellious slaves that the British could no long control. These marooned slaves, now called Maroons or Garifuna, form a present day ethnic group near the town of Punta Gorda. This unique mix of people and cultures, presently controlled by Honduras, has created a population that is rich in tradition yet welcoming to visitors.

Diverse and joyously discordant, Belize City is a place of beachside luxury, colonial pomp and authentic ramshackle streets. While no longer the official capital of Belize, it remains the country’s busiest and most populated city. Listen closely to the hum of chatter from the locals, and chances are you’ll only pick out fragments of the sentences exchanged, as the languages in this diverse location have merged and diverged over the years. Various creoles are spoken, adding extra colour and vitality to this lively, multicultural destination. Belize Tourism Village’s leaning wooden huts and swaying palm trees invite you ashore, and you can share a welcome drink by the waves, or shop for hand-carved souvenirs. Offshore, gorgeous beaches and sparkling marine life await at the gorgeous Turneffe Atoll. A little further out still sits the Great Blue Hole - a mysterious inky eye that sinks deep into the turquoise Caribbean and has been fascinating experienced divers for years. From Belize City, adventures amid the dense jungle beckon, or you can kick back and sample local restaurants, tasting everything from delicious lobster tail to fresh lionfish. Cucumber Beach gives you space to unwind and soak up the sun’s generous rays nearby. Belize City itself is split in half by Haulover Creek, which flows through the city and is spanned by the landmark Belize City Swing Bridge. A delightfully antiquated piece of engineering, it requires the elbow grease of four operators to open it and make way for taller ships to pass. The Museum of Belize brings the country’s history to life, pulling no punches in its treatment of the brutal slave history, and exploring the fascinating ancient Mayan civilisation, which thrived here around AD 250.

Cozumel Quintana Roo Mexico
Dive into the exuberant, colourful world of Cozumel - a Mexican island of exceptional scuba diving, snorkelling and dazzling beaches. Abundant underwater ecosystems swirl among reefs of black coral - attracting experts and beginners alike to the azure waters of this island. Mayan mythology says Cozumel was the sanctuary of the Goddess of fertility and love, Ixchel - and this seducing Mexican island of adventure and allure leaves all visitors head over heels. Waiting across the Carribean waters from Playa Del Carmen, and a world away from its lively resorts, Cozumel is an idyllic land of gently curving palm trees and tropical shores. Playa Palancar occupies the western coast, with velvety powder and balmy Caribbean seas. Relax, with just the notes of the washing sea and whispering palm trees accompanying you during splashes through the shallow waves or tanning sessions on the soft sand. Playa El Cielo - or the appropriately named Heaven Beach - is home to a divine constellation of starfish resting on the seabed, below its glass-clear waters. Stingrays and sea turtles also swirl in the waters, as you snorkel through some of the island's most vibrant and diverse displays of marine life. Beach bars serve up spicy Mexican fare with a seaside twist - like delicious prawn fajitas, fish tacos and lime-squeezed ceviches. The crumbling San Gervasio ruins, meanwhile, offer cultural intrigue and a fascinating insight into the remarkable ancient Mayan civilisation. Despite the presence of majestic ruins from antiquity, it's the giant iguanas, soaking up the sun in clearings, who often unwittingly steal the show.

Fort Lauderdale, Florida
With its heady mix of Creole culture and French sophistication, there is more than a pinch of je ne sais quoi in Fort de France. The capital of Martinique, and by far the biggest city in the whole of the French West Indies, if you are looking for Paris in the Caribbean, you’ll find it in Fort de France. The island has been under French govern since 1638 when the first governor of Martinique Jacques Dyel du Parquet commissioned a fort (from which the city takes its name) to keep out invaders. Not even an unsuccessful attack by the British in 1720, nor the French Revolution in 1789, has been able to shake the French govern of the island and today the city’s French and Creole heritage are impossible to untangle. The colonial past is everywhere, take a stroll down the narrow streets and enjoy the remarkable architecture of the Schœlcher Library, St. Louis Cathedral and the Old Town Hall. Among the many legacies Dyel du Parquet left on the island is sugarcane. A drive through the tropical forests will not only reward you with trees bending under the weight of papayas, mangoes and bananas, but will also afford superb vistas of the elegant plant swaying in the breeze. The arrival and subsequent export of sugar brought the French bourgeoisie in their droves and many of their mansions are still standing. Josephine de Beauharnais, the Napoleonic Empress of “not tonight” fame, hails from the island and those interested will find her childhood home, La Pagerie in nearby Trois Ilets.
