South America Cruises

Cruises to South America

With a region as varied as South America, it's hard to know where to begin. Amazon River cruises bring you close to the rainforest and the indigenous people who live there. The Galapagos Islands off of Ecuador are a must-do for outdoor lovers; add a trek to Machu Picchu before or after. And finally, a Round-the-Horn cruise takes passengers from Brazil south to the tip of Argentina before exploring the fjords of Chile.

    My main reason for choosing this cruise was the itinerary and I decided to do it on Celebrity Infinity as I had sailed on Celebrity before and for them to be reasonable good value for money. Unfortunately this was not the case this time round. In ... Read more
  • We invited 4 other couples to accompany us on the Valparaiso to Buenos Aires cruise but later felt we owed them an apology. The positives: interesting itinerary, excellent weather (calm seas--even at Cape Horn--and rain only on sea days), a ... Read more
