Uruguay may be a tiny country, but they know how to do things big. The beaches here are among the most beautiful in all of South America, and you'll find everything from parasailing to horseback riding available. It's no wonder this is the hot destination for jet-setting South Americans.
Long, beautiful beaches; thick, lush rain forests; spectacular mountains; and bustling cities - Brazil is as diverse and exciting as the people who live there. It's a country where passion is a way of life, and the feeling is contagious.
Famous for Evita and the passionate tango, Argentina is so much more. A graceful and charming country, Aregentina offers beautiful landscapes, spectacular architecture, and a unique and genteel culture. It's also home to the southernmost city in the world, Ushuaia, offering a memorable view of the Andes Mountains.
At the very bottom of South America, Chile is practically at the bottom of the world. Amid breathtaking scenery, you'll find the majestic Andes Mountains and Cape Horn. Discovered by Europeans in 1616, this cape at the bottom of the continent is the place where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Pacific Ocean.
|What to Pack |
|Days onboard are casual and you'll be most comfortable in sport clothes and resort wear. Shoes should be low-heeled for deck activities. Bring a few swimsuits so you'll always have a dry one. You don't have to bring towels, as they are provided. But don't forget your camera and binoculars, so you don't miss a thing. |
For evening wear, count on three basic types of attire:
|Casual: Dresses or slacks and blouses for women, sport shirts and trousers for men|
|Smart Casual: Dresses or pantsuits for women, jackets for men|
|Formal: Cocktail dresses for women, suits and ties or tuxedos for men (you can arrange to rent a tuxedo onboard)|
Ashore, you'll need comfortable walking shoes as well as a hat and sunscreen for protection from the sun. If you're traveling as far south as Chile or the Falkland Islands, you'll want to bring a sweater and jacket, as the weather can get very cold there.
