Highlights

  • Buenos Aires, Argentina

    It’s easy to see how Buenos Aires created the tango, both of them being highly captivating and seductive. Visually similar to Europe (with a Latin American edge), the city is a sprawling metropolis filled with romantic restaurants, an unmatched nightlife and an aroma of passion that travels from its outer neighbourhoods through to its bustling centre.

  • Christ the Redeemer

    Meet one of the most representative icons of Rio de Janeiro, Corcovado (Christ the Redeemer). Enjoy this spectacular view from the top to take stunning photographs from the top of Corcovado Mountain.

  • Cusco & Pisac Market

    You will be picked up at the hotel and driven to the market of Pisac. It is a well-known market amongst inhabitants which has not lose its original charm in spite of the high numbers of visitors. There are two sections that can be visited: one local part where people of Pisac and surrounding villages sell and buy their fruits and vegetables bargaining prices. On the other hand, there is the part where are many handicraft stands with ceramics, alpaca clothes and jewelry. Bargaining is welcome here, too! In the afternoon, you continue to Ollantaytambo. The impressive fortress thrones protectively above the village, the sight is great. Ollantaytambo is one of the few scenes where the Spaniards lost a battle against the Incas. Dinner at a local restaurant. After the meal you will be transferred back to your hotel in Cusco. Breakfast and dinner included.

  • Machu Picchu

    The ‘lost city of the Incas’ is not only one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, but also the biggest treasure of Peru’s past. Undiscovered by the Spaniards and forgotten over centuries, it was 1911 that the US-American scientist Hiram Bingham came upon it accidentally. Until today, the ruins leave scientists with numerous questions and riddles on how it was built and for which purpose. Theories vary but one thing is for sure: Machu Picchu is one of the most impressive and exciting places in the world, sublime and majestic on top of the mountain and surrounded by impenetrable rainforest.

  • Punta Del Este, Uruguay

    Spend the day enjoying this beautiful, chic beach resort, its marinas, museums and fascinating shops. Or venture into the equally picturesque countryside and visit a cattle station. Take a trip to Sea Wolves Island and view a colony of endangered sea lions and seals. Visit the 18th-century city of Maldonado with its many enchanting buildings, cathedral and lovely museum.

  • Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

    The scale of Rio de Janeiro cannot be emphasised enough. From ecstatic views atop Corcovado peak and Christ the Redeemer down to its sea of endlessly unique markets, one struggles to find fault with this perfect captivation of Brazilian culture. Famed for its often-spiritual bond with music, this is the only place where samba rhythm can truly be experienced

Not your typical Cruise Port

By Danielle Meenan

When we think about cruise ports we normally imagine busy Italian cities, relaxing Caribbean shores or beautiful Fjords. What we do not think about is desert sands, ritz and glamour of the worlds top performers and the ding ding of casino machines! Know where I am talking about yet???So many of us are so impatient to get on board cruise ships now that we sometimes ignore how fun the journey to the port could be. Travelling from the UK to the many ports in the West of America is a long journey...

Living on the Edge!

By Anne Eaves

Anne Eaves's blog

I have just returned from a week Caribbean Cruise on Celebritys newest ship EDGE. After spending 3 nights in Fort Lauderdale ( more about that in my next blog) we joined the ship on Sunday 7th April in Fort Lauderdale. After taking the shuttle transfer from the hotel to the port, we arrived around 11.45, and we were onboard in around 15-20 minutes. The ship was berthed at the new terminal in Fort Lauderdale and embarkation was really slick. The porters took our luggage from us and then once ...
