South America by Sea

South America by Sea

For me, standing at the stern of a beautiful Holland America Line ship watching the churned up waters of the wake slowly disappear into the distance is a moment of true relaxation.  The hustle and bustle of living in Sydney could not be further from my mind.  A great part of my job is getting to enjoy this cruising experience on a regular basis.  One such experience was a cruise around the incredibly beautiful destination of South America.

If you are interesting in visiting South America then you really must consider taking a cruise.  Taking a cruise gives you the perfect way to travel in this diverse and culturally rich destination. With landmark ports of call of Valparaiso, Buenos Aires, Montevideo and Rio de Janeiro there is no better introduction than arriving aboard your premium Holland America Line ship.  Having avoided the chaos associated with South American airports, once your ship has tied up you have one or two full days to explore, depending on which city or town you have arrived at.

Throughout the cruise there are so many highlights, such as Dinner and Tango in Buenos Aires, an amazing day trip to the awe inspiring Iguazu Falls or even the unexpected charm of Montevideo.  For me there was one highlight that stood out above the rest. It was our visit to the southernmost city of the world, Ushuaia, Terra Del Fuego, Argentina.  On the shores of the Beagle Channel and surrounded by the Martial Mounts it is the capital of the Tierra del Fuego, Antarctica and Southern Atlantic Islands Province and its superlative location allows you to enjoy sea, mountains and forests at the same time.  Besides, it is a great place for shopping: the whole island is a tax free zone, thus you can find lots of imported goods along with regional products. Take the 'Train of the end of the World' and spend some time walking through the national park, it is a travel experience of a lifetime.

Holland America has 12, 14 and 16 day itineraries. Choose the one that best suits your travel plans and enjoy.
