Day 1 Lima (Callao), Peru | Embark

Welcome to Callao – a seaside city on the Pacific Ocean and one of Peru’s chief seaports, where a world of wonder awaits aboard the Scenic Eclipse. Raise a glass to toast the start of this luxurious cruise.

Day 2 Paracas

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Paracas is a town on Peru’s west coast. It’s known for beaches, like El Chaco, set on sheltered Paracas Bay. The town is a launch point for the uninhabited Ballestas Islands, home to sea lions, pelicans and Humboldt penguins. Rugged, wildlife-rich Paracas National Reserve spans the desert, ocean, islands and the Paracas Peninsula. The peninsula’s Paracas Candelabra is a vast prehistoric geoglyph, etched into a hillside.

Enrich: Witness a private performance of Peruvian musicians and sample the national drink, the Pisco Sour, against the backdrop of the Pacific Ocean.

Day 3 At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Relaxation beckons. With so many choices on board, time passes so quickly. Choose one of the daily activities including a class in Scenic Epicure, join an entertaining discussion in the Theatre or make time for yourself in Senses Spa.

Day 4 Matarani

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
u>Freechoice: Explore Mejía Lakes National Sanctuary, one of the most important areas of wetlands on the western coast of South America, or see the highlights of the most picturesque resort in southern Peru. Alternatively, birdwatch at the Mejía Lagoons, one of the most significant Peruvian stopovers for migratory birds.

Day 5 Arica, Chile

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Chile’s northernmost city, Arica, is characteristically arid for the region, which is home to the world’s driest desert, the Atacama. Stark, barren and filled with rocky outcrops, a visit to the dramatic landscape of the desert is a spellbinding experience.

Freechoice: Learn of the history of humankind is this desert region including a visit to an archaeological museum that claims to have the world’s oldest mummies. Alternatively, visit a village that dates to the pre-Hispanic era and retains some of its mystical allure, or venture to the world's driest desert and experience the Andean Culture.

Day 6 Iquique

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Iquique is a coastal city in northern Chile, to the west of the Atacama Desert.

Take a stroll through Baquedano Street towards the center of town and soak in the very Texas-like vibe of the town. The street’s faded wooden buildings with window shutters and grand doors are like the ones a cowboy would be pushing through a saloon door at any moment.

Freechoice: Take a panoramic drive to fully appreciate the town’s peculiar beauty, or visit a ghost town that was abandoned after mining operations ceased on the way to the Pintados Geoglyphs.

Day 7 Isla Pan de Azucar

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The rugged shores of Isla Pan de Azucar (or Sugarloaf Island) are home to thousands of Humboldt penguins. The penguins come to this arid island to breed and spend their days fishing, swimming and diving.

Day 8 At Sea
