Day 4 - Embark Azamara Quest in Barbados

If you were to close your eyes while enjoying a "high tea in Trafalgar Square," you would swear you were in London - if it weren't for the warm breezes and emerald green waters enveloping you. Nicknamed "Little England" by some, Barbados is home to many museums that chronicle the island's rich past and over 100 shipwrecks along its reefs that are a playground for divers from around the world.

Day 9 - Boca De Valeira

Set in the beautiful country of Brazil, Boca da Valeria is a small community located where the Valeria River and Amazon River meets. This village is unparallel to any other Brazilian destination because of the extraordinary and authentic lifestyles of the local Indians. You will not find luxury hotels, restaurants, or even paved roads; instead Boca de Valeria is surrounded by a spirit, beauty, and charm uplifted in the smiles of its brightly dressed children and natives, who welcome their guests with open arms. Boca da Valeria, Brazil is an unusual stop but it is definitely worth the visit, giving everyone in its path an in-depth look into the Amazonian culture.

Day 10 - Manaus

Manaus, on the banks of the Negro River in northwestern Brazil, is the capital of the vast state of Amazonas. It's a major departure point for the surrounding Amazon Rainforest. Just east of the city, the dark Negro River converges with the brown, muddy Solimões River resulting in a striking visual phenomenon called the “Meeting of the Waters.” The combined tributaries form the Amazon River.

Day 16 - Fortaleza

Along the banks of the creek Pajeú, discover the coastal cosmopolitan charms of Fortaleza. Hugging the Atlantic Ocean in Northeastern Brazil, this is a city shaped by its port. Equal parts industry and culture, here you’ll find a flourishing arts scene and coastal-inspired gastronomy.

Day 17 - Natal

Before there was a town there was an impressive star-shaped fort, begun by Portuguese colonizers on the Feast of the Epiphany, and named Forte dos Reis Magos (Fort of the Three Wise Men). This prophetic event was followed by the founding of the town itself on December 25, 1599, hence the name Natal (Christmas). Natal today remains a popular place for holidays, when visitors celebrate the towering sand dunes and crystal blue waters that surround it. A dune buggy ride is just the thing for an adrenaline rush, and Dunas Ecological Park, rich in flora and fauna, is crisscrossed by trails just waiting to be explored.

Day 18 - Recife

Named for the surrounding coastal recifes (reefs) offshore, Recife is perched on Brazil's northeast coast. The busy seaport is known as the "Venice of Brazil," thanks to its many waterways, bridges, and small islands. This exciting metropolis is a mix of new high-rises and old colonial structures, with plenty to see and even more to do. Stroll through the historic heart of the city, Recife Antigo, the 16th Experience the city's vibrant cultural, culinary and music scene, or one of its many impressive beaches, such as Porto de Galinhas, a top tourist destination. Or discover the charming town of nearby Olinda, a UNESCO World Heritage Site founded in 1530 by the Portuguese. Recife is also home to a fantastic carnival, but any time of year provides the opportunity to dance the energetic frevo.

Day 25 - Montevideo

Montevideo exudes European charm and elegance, with broad boulevards, fountains, stately squares, and irresistible sidewalk cafes. The city maintains a low-key atmosphere despite its position as Uruguay’s commercial and political hub, and there are few skyscrapers on the horizon, though there are some surprising contrasts – an Art Nouveau pedestrian mall, Art Deco Centenary Stadium, and an American Embassy designed by I.M. Pei. Most of the nation’s countryside is farm or ranchland, and the life of the cowboy, or gaucho, is part of the local lore. Take a peak at the Gaucho Museum, or visit an estancia, and see them in action.

Day 26 - Buenos Aires, disembark & transfer to hotel / Enjoy Buenos Aires

Welcome to elegant, cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, with its European colonial architecture and colorful mix of cultures. Each district has its own style: enjoy Palermo with its mansions and parks; shop in the chic boutiques of Soho and Hollywood; and soak up the Italian flavor of La Boca where tango dancers and artists display their talents for passersby. Then top it all off with an Argentine steak, perfectly grilled over a fire of glowing coals, and washed down with an excellent glass of Malbec.
