26 SOUTH AMERICAN CAPITALS & CULTURES 8th January 2017 • 28 nights • Sails from Southampton (ends Buenos Aires) Boudicca • Cruise ID: D170214 Discover some of South America’s most iconic sights as Boudicca sails to a string of incredible destinations in Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina. Stunning cities, breathtaking natural wonders and iconic man-made landmarks: all this and more awaits you on this adventure of a lifetime. Joining Boudicca in Southampton, you’ll head south to the islands of Madeira, Tenerife and Cape Verde for a welcome winter escape. Then, after a relaxing transatlantic voyage to Brazil, you’ll reach energetic Salvador, where you’ll have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the ‘Capital of Happiness’. The city’s invigorating culture is an exotic cocktail of past Portuguese influences and pulsating African traditions. Your journey then brings you to Ilhéus, birthplace of the famous Brazilian novelist Jorge Amado, before a call into tropical Ilha Grande provides the opportunity to relax on golden sands and snorkel among the corals. Next you’ll feel the romance of Rio de Janeiro – the home of carnival and samba, and the undoubted highlight of your cruise. There’s plenty of time to take in the must-see attractions, including Sugarloaf Mountain, the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema, and the awe-inspiring statue of Christ the Redeemer. Known as the ‘Beautiful Island’, your next destination – Ilhabela – is home to more than 40 superb beaches, 300 species of bird and some 350 waterfalls. This natural paradise concludes the Brazilian leg of your journey, before you set sail for Uruguay. Two fantastic cities follow, offering completely contrasting experiences. In Montevideo – South America’s southernmost capital – you can explore the delightful Ciudad Vieja (Old City) to see some of the country’s most beautiful and iconic buildings, including the 26-storey high Palacio Salvo, the 19th century Teatro Solis and the Metropolitan Cathedral. Then in Punta del Este – a glamourous resort with gorgeous beaches and an elegant yacht-filled harbour – you can wander along La Gorlero, following in the footsteps of the rich and famous. The next and final stop on your cruise is vivacious Buenos Aires – famous for the Tango, extravagant European-style buildings and, of course, Evita Peron. Enjoy a full day to explore the city, or book a postcruise holiday extension for the chance to see even more – choose from a two-night city stay or a four-night exploration of Buenos Aires and the mighty Iguazu Falls.
