Day 1: Buenos Aires, Argentina | Embark

Few cities in South America share the ambiance and lifestyle that make Buenos Aires so endearing. From the Plaza de Mayo to the milongas along San Telmo’s cobbled streets, Buenos Aires is rife with historical and cultural sites for the curious mind.

The cosmopolitan capital of Argentina lies on the western shore of the Río de la Plata estuary. The combination of modern skyscrapers and colonial structures blends the country’s past and present in a way that calls out to the adventurer with a thirst for knowledge.

In the Plaza de Mayo you find a dotting of tropical palm trees amid old streets and buildings. The plaza holds much history as the site of the city’s foundation in 1580, the backdrop for the revolution of independence, and the scene of the latest political rallies.

At the heart of this historical site lies Casa Rosada, the Argentinian equivalent of the White House, but pink. It’s more than a novelty sight. It’s a symbol of the executive branch of government that leads the republic. Casa Rosada is best known as the location where famous first lady Evita Peron addressed the crowds.

A trip to Buenos Aires must include a visit to Recoleta Cemetery, the resting grounds of the powerful, rich, and famous. Stone paths lined with extravagant grave markers and aboveground tombs make it a celebration of the legacies that live on long after one is gone. Dive deep into Argentinian culture by joining an asado, a barbecue. As you indulge in the rich flavors of Argentinian steak and Malbec, you will come to understand and appreciate the culture’s finer points.

Day 2: Montevideo, Uruguay (Overnight)

Arrive in Montevideo and stay overnight on board. Uruguay’s capital city invites you to stroll its cobbled streets, wide avenues, and verdant cityscapes along the waterfront, known as the rambla. Immerse yourself in local culture by sharing in the tradition of drinking yerba mate with the locals. Wander through the colorful Mercado del Puerto, a restored 19th-century building bustling with various stalls and eateries. In the evening, return to your ship and relax, soaking in the vibrant atmosphere of Montevideo.

Day 3: Montevideo, Uruguay

Spend another day exploring Montevideo before departing at night. Discover more of the city’s colonial buildings and lush parks. Take a scenic drive about an hour outside the city to visit the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Church of Atlántida. Return to the city to enjoy more of its rich cultural offerings and perhaps indulge in some local cuisine. As night falls, prepare to set sail for your next destination, taking with you the memories of Montevideo’s charm and hospitality.


 

Day 4-5: At Sea

Spend the day on the high seas pampering yourself at the spa or enjoying some time on deck. Mingle with your fellow explorers and swap stories of your exploits, making plans for new ones together once you get to shore

Day 6: Itajai/Florianopolis, Brazil

The port city of Itajai, home to famous surf beaches like Praia Brava and Praia do Atalaia, offers a stunning array of sandy shores and natural wonders. Known for mesmerizing beaches, delicious seafood cuisine, and as a hot spot for surfing, the enchanting capital of Santa Catarina, Florianopolis, beckons you to let loose your wild side.

A cable car ride over the mountain separating Praia da Laranjeiras from the central beach offers a magnificent aerial view of the scenery. Among the many natural formations throughout Brazil, the six-meter-tall rock known as Parrot’s Beak gives you the opportunity to strike a pose with one of Itajai’s most famous sites. From catching waves at Joaquina Beach to enjoying the secluded tranquility of Galheta Beach, Florianopolis gives you the chance to bask in all the natural beauty Brazil has to offer.

Day 7: Sao Francisco do Sul, Brazil

Founded in the 16th century, São Francisco do Sul stands as one of Brazil’s oldest towns. Cobblestone streets and colonial structures, many listed on the National Historic Registry, create a pathway to a rich history waiting for you to uncover it. Its historic center enchants you with colorful facades, clock towers and enticing architectural designs. Strolling along the quay, a serene scene of bobbing boats and perhaps some river dolphins passing through beckons you to revel in the moment. Sandy shores as far as the eye can see create a quintessential scene of Brazil, but Forte Beach holds a particular allure as it takes some effort to get there. Once you do arrive, behold azure seas and verdant forests that invite you to bask in the sun.

Day 8-9: Ilhabela, Brazil

The archipelago of Ilhabela, lying off the southeast coast of Brazil, is one of the region’s most popular weekend escapes for locals. It’s natural beauty, beach scenes and overall picture of a tropical paradise invite residents and travelers alike to come revel in a relaxing day of quiet adventures or water sports. Between the more popular beaches of Feiticeira and Praia Grande you’ll find Praia do Julião, a more secluded gem. Ilha das Cabras, one of the archipelago’s islands, contains the Submarino Ecological Sanctuary, where you may have the chance to go diving or snorkeling with starfish, seahorses and turtles.

Day 10: Buzios, Brazil

Buzios, the vibrant heart of Brazil, surrounds you with amazing beaches and high-energy vibes that always feel on the verge of carnaval. Cobblestone streets in its historic districts take you on a journey to the past for a deep dive into how the city came to be. The taste of authentic ethnic and international cuisine that erupts with flavor takes you on a culinary adventure through Brazil’s rich culture.

The resort town of Buzios lies on a peninsula east of Rio de Janeiro. Once a quiet fishing village, it now attracts many visitors with its pristine beaches and mild, tropical climate. But it never feels crowded. It comes alive with just the right mix of travelers and locals.

Praia do Forno offers a unique beach experience with red sands, rocky shorelines, and sea green waters. This beach is less frequented by tourists, providing a more tranquil and remote experience. It has all the benefits of a day spent sunbathing and swimming with less noise and a rare environment.

An experience that mixes the rustic with the touristic calls for a visit to Praia da Tartaruga. Shallow waters and a smooth stone path dividing the sandy shore in two make it a laid back atmosphere for a quieter beach day. You may even spot a sea turtle as you snorkel the beach’s clear waters.

When making your way through Buzios, it’s impossible not to sample the local fare. Flavors of jerk beef, fried potatoes, and Brazil’s unforgettable version of barbecue — churrascaria – create a festival for the taste buds

Day 11: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Rio de Janeiro invokes images of a never-ending festival as one of the most celebrated cities in the world. From dancing samba on the beach of Ipanema to exploring the art deco influences of Copacabana, it comes alive. The iconic Christ the Redeemer statue, seen for miles in any direction, encapsulates the city’s grand feel. On the mouth of Guanabara Bay lies the peak of Sugarloaf Mountain, where you can take a cable car ride to the top for exhilarating, bird’s-eye views of city structures expanding to the edges of lush green cliffs into blue waters. Just on the outskirts of the city, a new UNESCO World Heritage Site awaits to be explored - Sítio Roberto Burle Marx - a garden designed by the landscape architect it’s named after.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
