Prepare to get wild. South America cruises explore a continent rich in ancient ruins, cosmopolitan cities, and all types of terrain, from the towering Andes to lush rainforests and Patagonian grasslands. On Antarctica cruises, cross the Drake Passage to take in the noticeable silence and dramatic ice shelves of a land few have touched. Every South America cruise includes an overnight stay, so you will have extra time to catch a tango show in Buenos Aires or soar through the treetops of Panama’s Soberanía National Park on an aerial tram. Marvel at the man-made wonders of the Panama Canal. Discover quaint colonial towns lining the golden coasts of Peru and Ecuador. Glide the majestic Chilean Fjords and the Strait of Magellan. See the largest gentoo penguin colony in the world.
