About South American Cruises

The cities are the beating heart of South America. The Argentinian capital of Buenos Aires has a distinct European flavour. Its opulent Recoleta area is a stark contrast to the lively, colourful streets of the La Boca neighbourhood, filled with tango artists. North of Buenos Aires is lively Rio de Janeiro, which sits in the shadow of the famous statue of Christ the Redeemer. The city’s samba-fuelled nightlife remains ever popular, as do the golden beaches, including Copacabana.

Punta del Este and Montevideo can also be visited on a cruise from the UK to South America. Punta del Este in Uruguay is arguably one of South America’s most glamorous resorts and known for its casino. The main avenue has a real buzz and is lined with galleries, restaurants and shops. Uruguay’s capital, Montevideo, is overlooked by the magnificent Salvo Palace. The downtown district has a mix of art deco and neoclassical buildings which sit alongside modern, soaring skyscrapers.

Some cruise lines include the Amazon River on cruises to South America. Stretching from the Peruvian Andes to South America’s Atlantic coast, this mighty river takes in dense rainforest inhabited by indigenous tribes and an array of flora and fauna, some of which is endemic. Popular ports of call are Manaus, the Amazon’s largest city and an urban metropolis, and Santarem, located at the confluence of the Tapajos and the Amazon rivers.

The breathtaking Chilean fjords often feature on no-fly cruises from the UK exploring South America. Discover a maze of narrow channels in the shadows of snow-capped peaks as you navigate this tranquil region, home to an abundance of wildlife.
