South America Cruises
FROM CARNIVAL’S IN RIO DE JANEIRO TO THE STUNNING INCA RUINS OF MEXICO, ONE THING GUARANTEED IS THAT YOU WILL LEAVE SOUTH AMERICA EAGER TO RETURN FOR MORE.
South America cruises are ever-increasing in popularity thanks to the wonderful selection of destinations on offer and the chance to transit the Panama Canal . A cruise to South America boasts something for everyone and being able to combine a relaxing beach day with an authentic jungle adventure via a luxury cruise ship really does ignite the traveller in all of us.
Ports of call for this region include the likes of Ushuaia, Santiago, Rio de Janeiro, Lima, Buenos Aires, Colombia, Panama, Uruguay and Sao Paulo. The Galapagos islands are also just a stone’s throw away for those who want to head out on an expedition voyage and Ushuaia is the embarkation port for voyages to Antarctica.
CRUISE LINES THAT VISIT SOUTH AMERICA
Many South America sailings are fly-cruises, but there are some cruise lines, Fred. Olsen, for example, that offer voyages that sail to and from the UK. They often include stops in other regions, such as the Caribbean, but there are also some dedicated South America no-fly options available.
WHEN TO VISIT SOUTH AMERICA ON A CRUISE
There is no single best time to visit South America, that is the easiest answer and this is because of the regions size. September and October generally offer comfortable temperatures and little rain in most places, and you will find a selection of itineraries available for this time of year with many cruise lines.
Summer in South America is roughly November to February and although there is more rain around at that time of year, this is when the cruise season here really gets underway. South American countries such as Ecuador and Peru will also feature as part of a World Cruise between January and April.
