Cruise & Taxes
Day 1 Santiago (Valparaíso)
Embark your ship in Santiago this morning, Chile’s modern capital blanketed with green parks and set at the foot of snowcapped Andean peaks. Settle in to your veranda stateroom and take time to explore your ship or the port of Valparaíso. Blessed with a magnificent setting in a steep natural amphitheater turned toward the Pacific, Valparaíso charms visitors with its colorful labyrinthine streets that rise up from the water’s edge and through the hills. Funiculars carry pedestrians up and down the slopes, where they ascend to marvel at the views over the port, and where artists, authors and poets have come for generations seeking inspiration.
Day 2 Santiago (Valparaíso)
Enjoy a second day in this charming city as you set and explore. Perhaps take a tour of Santiago, Chile’s capital city, brimming with museums, theaters, world-class eateries and numerous shopping centers. Explore the bohemian district of Barrio Bellavista and meander through the streets lined with vibrant murals at the foot of San Cristóbal Hill. Or, weave your way through the tiered maze of Santa Lucía Hill for magnificent views over the city.
Day 3 Cruise the Pacific Ocean
Spend another relaxing day cruising the waters of the Pacific Ocean. As you sail, you might take a swim in the Infinity Pool. Join new friends for afternoon tea in the Wintergarden or relax on board as you sip a cocktail by the pool.
Day 4 Puerto Montt
Today, you will call on the city of Puerto Montt, situated on the north side of a sheltered bay and less than 20 miles from the summit of the Osorno volcano. A main city in Chile’s lakes region, Puerto Montt boasts beautiful scenery. Snowcapped volcanoes, lush green fields and forested national parks dominate the landscape. Enjoy a panoramic drive through the scenic villages and towns, and visit the German Colonial Museum to explore the life and times of the early German settlers.
Day 5 Scenic Cruising: Chilean Fjords
Enjoy a landscape of snowy peaks, massive blue glaciers from which waterfalls tumble into the sea and steep-sided fjords, a land of great pristine beauty accessible only by ship. For centuries, seafarers have used the maze of channels to travel up and down the Chilean coast in the sheltered waters of the Chilean fjords.
Day 6 Scenic Cruising: Amalia Glacier
During our scenic cruising time, keep watch for sea lions and dolphins as you cruise among the rugged mountains and blue-tinged glaciers of Chile’s distinguished fjords. The Amalia Glacier, located on the edge of the Sarmiento Channel in Bernardo O’Higgins National Park, originates in the Southern Patagonian Ice Field.
Day 7 Punta Arenas
Chile’s southernmost city sits on the north shore of the Strait of Magellan, named after the Portuguese explorer who pioneered the sea route around South America in 1520. Its heritage as an explorer’s haven still remains to this day, with many expeditions to Antarctica beginning from here. The beautiful yet rugged landscape of this sparsely populated region was once thought to be inhabited by Patagonian giants. Explore the city’s charm on a scenic drive as you take in the highlights.
Day 8 Ushuaia
At the very tip of South America, Ushuaia prides itself on being the southernmost city in the world. The city’s spectacular natural surroundings with subantarctic forests, lovely lakes, pristine glaciers and rich peat bogs are its main asset, but Ushuaia’s history as a penal colony of sorts at the “End of the World” makes the city itself an interesting place. Visit the former prison, which today houses a museum, or soak up the scenery on a drive through Tierra del Fuego National Park.
Day 9 Scenic Cruising: Cape Horn
Enjoy two scenic days as you cruise around Cape Horn, once the pinnacle of a seafarer’s career, and through the Beagle Channel. The Cape marks the northern boundary of the Drake Passage, where the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans meet. Retrace the epic voyage of Charles Darwin through the Beagle Channel, the narrow strait separating the main island of Tierra del Fuego from a string of smaller islands to the south. The area has not lost any of its stark natural beauty since Darwin described it in lyrical terms in 1833.
Day 10 Cruise the Atlantic Ocean
Perhaps you will get a morning workout at the Fitness Center and soothe your body with a hot sauna and a few minutes amid the refreshingly chilled air of the Snow Grotto. This evening, enjoy cocktails in the Explorers’ Lounge and an authentic Italian meal at Manfredi’s Italian Restaurant.
Day 11 Falkland Islands
More than 300 miles off the coast of South America lies the rugged archipelago of the Falkland Islands. Here, you will find several hundred sparsely inhabited islands with unspoiled nature and diverse fauna. Some 60 distinct bird species breed on the islands, including five different species of penguin and some of the world’s largest colonies of albatross. Visit the world’s most southerly Anglican church and the Whalebone Arch, explore the historic streets of Port Stanley, and meet the renowned landlady at Kay McCullum’s Bed & Breakfast.
Day 12 Cruise the Atlantic Ocean
As you cruise today, perhaps you will relax and enjoy the amenities of your stateroom, with its private veranda and beautifully designed, streamlined Scandinavian interior. Indulge in a morning cup of coffee on your veranda, with the majestic sea as a backdrop, or unwind on the couch with your favorite book.
Day 13 Puerto Madryn
Depart your ship and head to the Valdéz Peninsula, which is connected to the continent by a narrow strip of land. Enjoy its natural beauty and biodiversity, before visiting Puerto Pirámides to observe a sea lion colony from the cliff tops. Or immerse yourself in the history of the area’s Welsh settlers with a trip to the town of Dolavon and the city of Gaiman, where the Welsh language is still spoken.
Day 14 Cruise the Atlantic Ocean
Indulge in a morning cup of coffee on your veranda, or with a real Norwegian waffle at Mamsen’s gourmet deli, and cruise into the Southern Hemisphere as you sail over the equator. Later, perhaps you will swim in the Infinity Pool or mingle with newfound friends over tea in the Wintergarden. In the evenings, enjoy soft piano music in The Living Room or lively jazz in Torshavn.
Day 15 Cruise the Atlantic Ocean
Stay in shape at sea with a visit to our Sports Deck, or take a gentle stroll around our 360° Promenade Deck. As you cruise, take in the sea views from the Explorers’ Lounge or reserve a soothing massage at The Spa. Linger over tea and scones in the Wintergarden or soak up the sun on deck.
Day 16 Montevideo
Uruguay’s capital city boasts perhaps the highest quality of living of any city in South America. Rich in parks, sweeping vistas and architectural styles, Montevideo is blessed with a subtropical climate, guaranteeing warm summers and mild winters. A panoramic tour features highlights such as the Legislative Palace, a grand neoclassical building, the Ciudad Vieja, or Old Town, and the Batlle y Ordóñez Park with the iconic La Caretta Monument. Or enjoy an overland tour to marvel at nature at the magnificent Iguazú Falls.
Day 17 Buenos Aires
Arrive in Buenos Aires today, Argentina’s cosmopolitan capital. Settle in to your veranda stateroom and take time to explore your ship. As we dock here overnight, you will have plenty of time to explore. Be captivated by the bohemian flair of La Boca, marvel at the grand homes of Recoleta, one of the finest quarters of the city, and discover the many facets of Buenos Aires. Walk in the footsteps of Eva Péron. You will see the ornate Casa Rosada, the presidential palace that was once her home, and visit her final resting place at La Recoleta Cemetery as you discover the story of the much-loved first lady and inspiration for the Broadway musical Evita. On January 1, 2021 ship will call at Punta del Este.
Day 18 Buenos Aires
Disembark your ship this morning as your journey comes to a close, or extend your stay in Buenos Aires.
• Travel insurance can reimburse your for out of pocket expenses if your trip is canceled and some of it is non-refundable

We deal with Manulife Global Travel Insurance. We have carefully assessed travel insurance providers, and although these are not the cheapest policies – you do get what you pay for. Part of the reason that we have chosen them is their claims record, which was to pay out 96% of claims.
If you have insurance on your credit card, please note that very few have coverage that is applicable to fully cover your trip, there are often changes to coverage as you age, and often traveling companions are not covered.

This is a very personal, but important part of your vacation planning. Everyone is different in terms of what risks they are willing to take, and in terms of their personal health experiences and how that may affect coverage and pricing. Our ask – please put insurance into your planning, check the terms and conditions carefully, and give our insurance a chance. Please don’t travel without good insurance coverage!
