Bursting with Latin passions, South Pacific colour and Australian adventure, this stunning 99-night cruise with Arcadia takes in some of the world’s best-known sights.
After a call at Tenerife, you’ll cross the Atlantic for Recife, sometimes called the Venice of Brazil thanks to its waterways and bridges. The country’s capital, Rio de Janeiro offers a host of must-see sights, including the iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer. Within a few yards of the cruise port at Montevideo, you’ll find a bustling market whilst the old town is rich in history, attractive gardens and grand squares. In Buenos Aires, head for Plaza Dorrego in the trendy Recoleta district to discover an authentic slice of Argentinean life.
From Puerto Madryn you travel to Port Stanley in East Falkland and, after cruising around Cape Horn, Arcadia reaches Ushuaia, otherwise known as the ‘Town at the end of the world’. A cruise through the Beagle Channel brings views (and smells!) of rocky outcrops teeming with seals and birds whilst your next call is the small Chilean port of Punta Arenas. Once you’ve passed the Amalia and PIO X Glaciers, there are stops at Puerto Chacabuco and Puerto Montt before Valparaiso for visits to Santiago.
An early evening cruise by Easter Island’s enigmatic and isolated giant-heads is unforgettable and, a few days later, you’ll pass its nearest neighbour, Pitcairn Island 1,200 miles away. Tahiti’s cosmopolitan capital, Papeete is next before Bora Bora; Suva, capital of Fiji; and Noumea. Brisbane provides your first Australian experience followed by Sydney, a capital that always lives up to expectations.
The spectacular scenery of Milford Sound welcomes you to New Zealand and the ports of Dunedin; Lyttelton, for trips into cultural Christchurch; Wellington; Art Deco Napier; and Auckland, where you can take a full day tour to the remarkable geysers and mud pools of Rotorua.
Blessed with many natural wonders, Pago Pago in the South Pacific is your next stop followed by the magical Samoan capital, Apia and then Honolulu. San Francisco’s, improbably steep streets are simply breathtaking whilst in Acapulco you can watch the world famous cliff divers at La Quebrada plunge into the swirling waters below.
Beach-lovers are spoilt for choice at Mexico’s first eco-tourism resort, Huatulco before Arcadia transits the Panama Canal for the Caribbean islands of Curacao and Barbados with one final call in Ponta Delgada in the Azores before arriving back in Southampton.
