Sail around Cape Horn or along the legendary Amazon River, experience vibrant ports such as Rio de Janeiro or venture inland to awe-inspiring Machu Picchu on a land & sea vacation.
Cape Horn & Strait of Magellan
Those who take this cruise to Cape Horn swear it is every bit as spectacular as Alaska. Their reports are filled with mystical glaciers and fjords, forested coastline and wildlife in abundance—from whales and penguins to condors with enormous wingspans.
An Amazon River cruise is a visual spectacle of images that flow like the waters of this storied river, with each one more amazing and colorful than the last. In the canopy you can hear the chatter of monkeys, as you float past native villages to a city carved into the heart of the jungle.
Andes & Brazilian Adventure
Cruise the dramatic coastlines of Chile, Ecuador and Peru. The stunning Andes are never far from sight, which lead you to Lima, Quito and Machu Picchu—high points in every sense of the word. On the opposite coast, cruise to Brazil into Rio de Janeiro where the city works its magic with one of the most dazzling arrivals in all of cruising.
