Below, you'll find the best small cruise ships that depart from or pass through Uruguay as chosen by Adventure Life's team of South America cruise experts. Uruguay, and its main port of Montevideo see precious few cruises that begin or finish their voyage, but those few that do are adventures of epic proportions on luxury vessels such as the 16-day Great Adventure on the Le Lyrial or the Le Soleal and the Sea Spirit's 21-day Ushuaia to Montevideo cruise that reach Antarctica and many lesser visited islands that provide a unique perspective on the world's southern seas. Not sure which cruise ship and cruise are best for you? Contact one of our Uruguay cruise experts for help planning the perfect trip.
