WHY WE RECOMMEND South America CRUISES
South America offers a spectacular range of sights and experiences on a luxury cruise. You could tour beachfront cities like Rio de Janeiro and get into Brazil’s carnival spirit, or head to secluded tropical ports that act as gateways to the rich jungle wildlife of the Amazon. Learn to tango in Buenos Aires, see the sunset in beautiful Lima, or head far to the south instead, for rugged mountain landscapes as breath-taking as they are remote.
Cruises around South America take place year-round, with itineraries ranging anywhere from 7 nights to 62 or more. Shore excursions here offer a huge variety of sights, from city life in Buenos Aires to historic ruins in Machu Picchu. With so many different landscapes, cultures and colonial influences to see, a luxury cruise around South America offers an incredible choice of adventures that you won’t find anywhere else in the world.
With warm weather year-round, there is no one time to enjoy the best cruises around South America. Itineraries range from 7-night Galapagos voyages to month-long tours along the east and west coasts – or you could even opt for a South American cruise that includes Antarctica, Europe, the Caribbean or the Pacific too.
A cruise around South America offers a range of different ways to see the continent. Along with its mix of modern cities, traditional villages and ancient civilisations, the continent is also home to some of the most spectacular landscapes and wildlife on Earth. A cruise to the jungle city of Manaus can open the doors to the Amazon rainforest, while many alternative cruises set sail from Ecuador for the legendary wildlife of the Galapagos.

Pisco is the largest port between Callao and Matarani, Peru. There are two parts of town: Pisco Pueblo with its colonial-style homes; and Pisco Puerto, which, apart from fisheries, has been replaced as a port by the deep-water Puerto General San Martin. This area was also home of the Paracas culture, and in August 1820, the great liberator General San Martin landed on its coast, marking Pisco as the birthplace of Peru’s struggle for independence.

Coquimbo nestled in Northern Chile, means “place of calm water”, a happy accident of geography that encouraged its development as an important port. According to legend, the English corsair Sir Francis Drake has buried a considerable treasure in the city. In the early 19th century, Coquimbo was just a small fishing village, but when the railway reached the area joining the copper mines to the sea, the town and population increased dramatically. Today, Coquimbo offers the pleasures of a picturesque seaside promenade, the beautifully restored 19th-century architecture of the English Neighborhood and several fine beaches.

There is an old Chilean proverb that states, “If you are in a hurry in Patagonia, you are wasting your time.” In Puerto Chacabuco, a Chilean town in the Aysen commune, time passes at the leisurely pace of nature’s cycles. The gorgeously landscaped town is a small, isolated settlement situated along the wild-west fjordland coast. Patagonian ice sheets fall into the sea and the area provides a chance to view Black Necked Swans and the endangered Giant Condor.

Laguna San Rafael
San Rafael lagoon is an arc-shaped coastal lake located in the Aisén Region of Chile, within the national park that bears its name.

Today, it is a popular tourism destination, and ships sails from Puerto Chacabuco and Puerto Montt nearly everyday to see the famous ‘Blue Wall’-- the grand San Rafael glacier, crack, calve and thunder above the translucent blue-green waters.

Here at the bottom of the world, mountains and sea come together like in no other place in America.

Located about 480 miles northeast of Cape Horn, the Falklands Islands are the most easily accessible sub-Antarctic islands. The English navigator, John Davis, aboard the Desire made the first confirmed sighting of the Islands in 1592. The Falklands have been a disputed area between Great Britain and Argentina. Argentina invaded and occupied the islands in April 1982, spurring a British counter-invasion that June. With all the charm of a rural English village, Stanley is characterized by its bright rooftops, red telephone boxes, shops, and local pubs. Nearby is the Grave Cove penguin colony.

Situated snugly in a well-protected bay of the Golfo Nuevo, Puerto Madryn is the Chubut region’s natural access point for the plains of Patagonia, a vast area covering a third of the country, but occupied by less than four percent of the population. The area was originally settled by a group of adventurous Welsh immigrants some 120 years ago. Although the town appears today unmistakably Argentine, Welsh customs, names and even some of the language have survived.
