Travel to South America takes place November through March each year, as the season’s are reversed to North America. Winter in the north is Summer in the South. Many of the ports are small and unspoiled. History and cultural experiences abound on any cruise vacation to South America. This is an area that was explored and occupied by European cultures long before North America. Additionally, there are great indigenous cultures to learn about that had developed civilizations of great wealth, commerce and artistry, and had existed long before the European explorers ever set foot on South American soil.
This is a part of the world that for many years was not serviced by many of the major cruise lines on a consistent basis. But as the cruise lines are striving to add more and more destinations to their regular cruise calendar this is one area that has grown immensely with all the lines. Now you will see represented the following lines: Celebrity Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Holland America Line, Norwegian Cruise Lines, Oceania Cruises, Princess Cruises, Regent Seven Seas, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, Silverseas Cruises, Yachts of Seabourn. There is representation of both big and small ships sailing these waters, which means the choices are plentiful for you, the cruising public.
One thing to keep in mind is that usually this is an itinerary that is a longer than most. It is not uncommon to see the trip lasting 14 or more days. 2010 has a few exceptions, however, and we can help you find them.
This is definitely a trip for adults. The nature of the itinerary does not lend itself to one that will offer child oriented activities or benefits. The dates of travel do not work well with scheduled school breaks. And many of the ships do not offer a children’s program. While the prices for visiting this part of the world have become more competitive than in the past, the air prices could be a factor that adds to the cost in a larger proportion than with other destinations.
Couples, seniors and/or groups are the passenger types that will elect to experience South America the most.
