South America is such a vast and varied continent, bursting with energy and a real “bucket list” destination. You’ll begin with a 2 night stay in vibrant Santiago where you will see Chile’s rich cultural heritage come to life as you visit iconic landmarks such as La Plaza de Armas and the Metropolitan Cathedral. Then set sail to revel in the rich history, culture and spectacular natural beauty of Chile, Argentina and Uruguay. Of course, no cruise to South America would be complete without the breathtaking experience of scenic cruising around the Chilean Fjords and Cape Horn. A 2 night stay in bustling Buenos Aires completes this trip. Experience live jazz sets, a dynamic food scene and impressive art and architecture.
