But why should you choose a South America cruise? Here we look at some of the things you can expect during your time on board.
What can you expect on a South America cruise?
Less experienced travellers may not realise that South America features a variety of climates – from the year-round heat of Mexico to the icy climes of Ushuaia, and everything in between. As such you’ll need to make sure you pack accordingly. Dressing in layers is best – bring shorts and thin cotton t-shirts for the heat, but be prepared to wrap up warm as you venture further south.
Depending on the cruise you choose, you’ll get to see ancient ruins, glaciers, fascinating wildlife including sea iguanas and penguins, vast jungles, vibrant carnivals, ancient monuments and much, much more. South America is rightly known as one of the most diverse continents on the planet.
And you’ll have the chance to see more than just South America – with some of our cruises also stopping in places like Miami, Venice, Sicily, San Diego, Barcelona, Madeira and more.
