Begin in San Antonio, Chile, then sail along the continent's eastern coast to Buenos Aires. This 15-day discovery includes longer (and later) stays and four luxurious days at sea, plus overnights in Buenos Aires and Punta Arenas, on the historic Strait of Magellan.
Before embarking, spend the day in Chile's capital, Santiago-a city bursting at the seams with fascinating history and cultural life. Then set sail for Puerto Montt and its bustling streets, eclectic shops, and superb seafood restaurants.
A visit to Puerto Chacabuco follows where the river valleys and snowy backdrop of the Andes beckon. Steep, rugged shores abound as you cruise through the Chilean Fjords' vast network of free, open channels that wind their way to Punta Arenas, the port that sits on the north shore of the Strait of Magellan, merging the Atlantic and Pacific. From wildlife spotting to kayaking, there's much to explore, so we stay the night.
Cruise the Beagle Channel to in Ushuaia, Argentina, which is literally referred to as the "End of the World." On to Port Stanley, the capital of the Falkland Islands (and one of the world's great penguin capitals), before two days at sea to enjoy spa treatments, watch live entertainment, and relax and reflect on your journey so far.
Then it's on to Montevideo, Uruguay's capital and one of the most intriguing and diverse cities in South America. The voyage concludes with an overnight stay in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where the Plaza de Mayo, Presidential Palace, and Teatro Colón are must-see stops.
