South America Cruises

Luxury South America cruises open up the travel gateway to a colourful continent of contrasts. Most of the continent is situated in the southern hemisphere, with a few regions in the northern hemisphere. The dividing line between the two is often considered to be the world famous Panama Canal. Of the many countries in South America, Ecuador is an especially popular cruising destination because it provides access to beautiful archipelago islands and magnificent endemic wildlife.

The spectacular landscapes of South America range from the dramatic rainforests, mighty rivers, and ice capped mountains and fjords, to the enchanting oceanic panoramas. The cultural iconic attractions span the breadth of history and also incorporate many modern enticements. You can expect a distinctive vibrant vibe wherever you travel in the captivating continent.

Due to its vast size, South America has a wide variety of climates. The northernmost region typically experiences dry desert conditions, while the windswept southwest coast often enjoys heavy rains. In the tropical Amazon basin steamy damp heat is the norm, while icy cold air encircles the snow capped Andean peaks. Unlike other continents that have clearly defined spring, summer, autumn and winter, in the Amazon there is just one humid season.
