Cruise Overview

15-day expedition cruise through the Panama Canal and down South America’s Pacific coast from Colón to Valparaíso

South America voyage of discovery 

Set sail through the legendary Panama Canal as we head off on a Pacific Ocean adventure. From the jungles of Central America all the way to the deserts of Chile, you’ll experience a kaleidoscope of culture, colour and curiosities as we sample some of the top highlights of Latin America. 

From the ancient to the modern 

Indulge your sense of wonder as you fly over the enigmatic Nazca Lines, discover hidden Inca history, and explore the artistic mud-built city of Chan Chan. Taste cutting edge cuisine in Lima, look out for penguins in the Ballestas Islands, and savour the flavour of Chile’s cultural life in colourful Valparaíso – a truly life-enhancing adventure.
