Port of Call
Port of Call Overnight

Welcome the new decade in style with a spectacular South American voyage. Beginning in beautiful Buenos Aires, we set sail for the artistic enclave or Punta del Este, Uruguay. With an overnight stay, you’ll have plenty of time for exploring contemporary museums and soaking up some sun. Celebrate Christmas at sea with a holiday feast and plenty of festive fun.

Next, we’re off to vibrant São Paolo, where a late stay in port gives ample time to explore. Head to the top of the Banespa skyscraper to scope out the city, or savor delicious street food inspired by global flavors. Next up is a visit to Ilhabelha, then it’s off to the former gold rush port and chic seaside resort in Parati and Buzios before your arrival in Rio. We’ll spend the night in this energetic city where the atmosphere is electric, before taking a short sail to the famous Copacabana Beach. Ring in the New Year with us on board, or samba down to the renowned beach to revel with the locals.

A day at sea is the perfect way to recharge after the night’s festivities. Lounging poolside or treating yourself to a spa experience are surefire cures anything that ails you. We make land next in Montevideo, an elegant, ornate city with eclectic modern touches, for another overnight stay. Stroll along sprawling La Rambla, or sample meat and seafood grilled to perfection at the 19th century Harbour Market. We’re back to Buenos Aires to conclude this incredible holiday voyage.
