Balmoral’s extensive, in-depth exploration of South America offers to show
you the very best of this intoxicating part of the world. Incredible destinations
in Brazil, Argentina, Peru and more feature, with countless highlights to
uncover – from iconic landmarks and ancient sites to beautiful beaches and
astonishing natural wonders. Scenic cruising of breathtaking Chilean Fjords
and the Panama Canal will be simply unforgettable too.
As you sail across the Atlantic, taking in floral Madeira
and cultural Cape Verde en route, excitement will
build in anticipation of your once-in-a-lifetime
adventure. The South American exploration will then
begin in Brazil. Stops at Salvador, with its UNESCOlisted
historic centre, and beautiful Ilhabela sandwich
an overnight stay in Rio de Janeiro, where you can
shake your hips to the unmistakable sound of samba
and marvel at world-famous attractions, from Christ
the Redeemer to Sugarloaf Mountain.
In Uruguay, you’ll visit Montevideo and the glamorous
resort of Punta del Este. In between these calls,
Balmoral will also make time for vibrant Buenos Aires.
Make the most of an overnight call at Argentina’s
capital to take in a multitude of historic and artistic
attractions; perhaps enjoy a performance of
traditional Tango dance; or tour to Iguazu Falls.
Two rare calls in the Falkland Islands follow, for you to
immerse yourself in the fascinating history and
unique culture of this famously disputed archipelago,
and go in search of endemic species of seals, sea
lions, penguins and seabirds. The Chilean leg of
Rio de Janeiro
your cruise takes in charming Punta Arenas; Puerto
Chacabuco – gateway to the spellbinding mountains
of Lower Patagonia and the Andes; vivacious
Valparaiso; and Arica, for sun-kissed beaches.
Sailing between the glaciers and snow-capped peaks
of the Chilean fjords will be an undoubted highlight.
During your three days in Peru, you could take the
rare chance to join an overland tour to one of the
New Seven Wonders of the World, Machu Picchu.
You’ll return to your ship in Callao after an
unforgettable exploration of this awe-inspiring
‘lost city’ and its ancient ruins. The Costa Rican
city of Puerto Limón awaits, after your sailing of
the magnificent Panama Canal, then visiting the
Colombian city of Cartagena de Indias will bring
an enthralling end to your time in South America.
Before heading back across the Atlantic, Balmoral
will also take you to the gorgeous islands of Curaçao,
Bonaire, Barbados, Antigua and St Kitts, for a real
taste of Caribbean paradise. The Azorean island of
São Miguel and stylish La Coruña add even more
culture for your journey home too.
