This luxury fourteen-night cruise begins in Buenos Aires, the birthplace of poets,

composers and a dance called Tango; a city with European flair and a Latin heartbeat.

Then cruise to the ends of the earth through the Cockburn and Beagle Channel's as

you make your way to Ushuaia, the southernmost town in the world. Prepare to have

your breath taken away by the mesmerising beauty of the Chilean Fjords and marvel

at unusual rock formations and imposing granite cliffs as you enjoy scenic cruising

around Cape Horn. At the end of your cruise you will spend a night in Santiago Chile,

a lush, irresistible tangle of serpentine streets, steep hills and the famous ascensores.

YOUR ITINERARY:

Day 1 - London Heathrow to Buenos Aires: Fly

overnight from London Heathrow to Buenos Aires,

Argentina.

Buenos Aires transfer by private car to the port and

embark the ms Zaandam. Overnight in port,

Buenos Aires.

Day 3 - Buenos Aires, Argentina: Buenos Aires

has been the gateway to Argentina for centuries; this

stylish, energetic port city is rich in culture and history

and well worth exploring

Day 4 - Montevideo, Uruguay: Friendly and genteel,

Montevideo honours colonial customs: long lunches,

siestas, high tea. Nearby: Colonia del Sacramento, the

oldest city in Uruguay (ca. 1680) and a UNESCO World

Heritage Site.

Day 5 & 6 - At Sea:

Day 7 - Port Stanley, Falkland Islands: Stanley is the

only town in the sparsely populated Falkland Islands.

Visit a local pub, take a walk across the moorlands and

see penguins of every type. Sea conditions permitting

(otherwise scenic cruising Falkland Sound)

Day 8 - Strait of Magellan, cruising: Enjoy a day

of cruising through the Strait of Magellan, a natural

passage that links the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans

Day 9 - Punta Arenas, Chile & Cockburn Channel,

Beagle Channel & Glacier Alley - Scenic Cruising:

From Punta Arenas you can venture to the high scarps

of Torres del Paine National Park, the penguin colony

at Seno Otway, or the Martian volcanic topography of

Pali Aike National Park. Look out for wildlife and enjoy

spectacular scenery as you cruise through the narrow

waterways of the Cockburn and Beagle channel's as

you head towards Ushuaia.

Day 10 - Ushuaia, Argentina: The southernmost town

in the world, where dominating peaks loom on three

sides; the fourth opens to the Beagle Channel, where

sea lions bellow and king crab rules.

Day 11 - Scenic cruising Cape Horn: Magellan's

fleet first circled this massive, treacherous rock at

continent's end, and until the Panama Canal was

constructed, this was the main shipping route from the

Atlantic to the Pacific.

Day 12 - Canal Sarmiento, scenic cruising: Be

among the lucky few to spend a glorious day scenic

cruising through Tierra del Fuego and the snow-capped

peaks and ethereal blue glaciers of Canal Sarmiento.

Cutting through Chile's Torres del Paine National Park,

this majestic waterway is surrounded by other-worldly

beauty.

Day 13 - Chilean Fjords, scenic cruising: Fjords

that are arguably more spectacular than those in

Norway or Alaska. See them here along the southern

Lake District, a series of fragrant eucalyptus and pine
