Detailed Port Descriptions

Buenos Aires, Argentina

If only one word could be used to describe this vibrant and richly cosmopolitan city, it would be "mosaic." Stroll along these broad thoroughfares, like the Plaza de Mayo, where famed first lady Evita Perón led fervent crowds to petition for her husband’s release from prison, or visit Pirámide de Mayo, the oldest of the city’s many national monuments.  

Montevideo, Uruguay

Montevideo is a thoroughly modern city with a rich artistic tradition, the reach of the rural estancias is all around you. If ever there were a time you were inclined to indulge, delicious steaks are the specialty of the house in virtually every restaurant.  

Punta Del Este, Uruguay

  If South America had purposely created a place to compete with the Riviera, this would be it. Leisurely browse through the chic shops and galleries of Calle Gorlero, or spend a relaxing afternoon people watching from a beachside café while the assorted sun lovers and jet setters around you enjoy one of the continent’s most storied playgrounds.  

Puerto Madryn, Argentina

This deep water port was founded in 1865 by Welsh immigrants. Extending out into the Atlantic from Puerto Madryn is the Península Valdés, a wildlife sanctuary where vast numbers of sea elephants, whales and penguins far outnumber the few human visitors who make it out this far.  

Cape Horn, Chile (Scenic Cruising)

Tierra del Fuego, Land of Fire, is the most isolated place in the Americas, and Cape Horn is its southernmost point. These craggy cliffs and windswept shores are stark, rugged beauty personified, creating a dramatic setting for the collision between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.  

Ushuaia, Argentina

No city on the planet has a more southerly latitude. As a result, the sun shines for 18 hours during each summer day, providing ample opportunity to view the mix of glaciers, forests and sea, all framed by Mount Martial to the west and Mounts Olivia and Cinco Hermanos to the east.  

Punta Arenas, Chile

  South America isn't all tropical rainforests. Around Punta Arenas you'll find soaring mountains, beautiful national parks, vast ice fields and towering glaciers. The city itself has been a hub of commerce and trade for generations, thanks to its access to both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Trek through Magallanes National Reserve or visit the penguin colony at Seno Otway.  

Strait Of Magellan

This 350-mile journey is a bucket-list experience for most cruisers. On a Strait of Magellan cruise, you'll encounter the raw beauty of Tierra del Fuego plains in the distance, the imposing Amalia glacier, stunning Seno Eyre fjord, humpback whales, colonies of Magellanic penguins, and much more. You are certain to leave with amazing memories, and pictures, of the breathtaking scenic highlights as you make your way through this corner of the world.  

Chilean Fjords

These are some of the most magnificent fjords in the world. As your eyes work their way up the jagged walls of mammoth glaciers, you may be rewarded with an Andean condor sighting. On the ocean's surface, the Magellan penguins always put on a good show.  

Puerto Montt, Chile

This coastal enclave lives and dies by the sea, as evidenced by the colorful fishnet floats that adorn the main cathedral's altar, the dozens of salmon farms that thrive in the hidden bays, and the hundreds of fishing boats that venture out each dawn in search of ocean bounty.  

San Antonio, Chile

Cruises to South America visit San Antonio, busiest port in Chile, with roots to the 16th century. Stroll the pleasant Paseo Bellamar for local crafts and harbor views. Blocks inland, visit the Municipal Museum of Natural History to see objects made by indigenous cultures, local fossils, and the skeleton of a blue whale. El Yali National Reserve, 27 miles south, has lagoons and marshlands with swans, herons, owls, ducks, Chilean flamingos, and other birds. Enjoy a day of hiking and picnicking.
