As someone who loves South America and who loves cruising, I think I have found my dream holiday with the Regent Seven Seas – Grand South America!
A 72-night (yes 72!) cruise tour departing from and returning to Miami, it stops at no less than 38 ports along the way, taking in the highlights of many Caribbean islands, Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, Falkland Islands, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, the Panama Canal, and Columbia along the way – phew!
An amazing journey and a trip of a lifetime for many, this amazing voyage around the tip of Patagonia is certainly not for those with a limited budget, but when you consider what is included in this 72-night package such as return flights from you home country, pre-cruise hotel nights, free unlimited excursions, and all onboard drinks, dining and gratuities, well, I think the price tag seems pretty reasonable!
In the Caribbean, one will get the opportunity to visit the beautiful islands of Puerto Rico, St. Barts, and Barbados before heading down to Brazil and the Amazon. After a journey all the way down to Manaus, the ship will head back out to sea and down the Brazilian coast, taking in the amazing ports of Fortaleza, Salvador and Rio de Janeiro to name a few, before arriving in Uruguay.
The next stops include Argentina, Patagonia and Chile, before the stunning vessel starts heading north towards Peru and Ecuador and the unforgettable passage through the Panama Canal, before finally arriving in the port of Cartagena Columbia.
Curacao and Aruba will leave you refreshed and relaxed before heading on ‘home’ to Miami, where you will bid farewell to the ship, the crew, and the many new friends you will have made on board.
Sound too good to be true? Well, true it is, and if you want to join this magnificent journey around South America, you have until 7th January 2013 to save!
We would love to hear from anyone going on this trip – you lucky, lucky people!
