Balmoral takes you on an epic circumnavigation – and in-depth exploration of – South America, combined with an unforgettable venture to the rugged, icy wilderness of the Antarctic peninsula. On this 78-night voyage, discover some of the most fascinating, rarely seen parts of the world and experience their wonders, plus take in iconic landmarks, ancient sites, idyllic beaches and much more

You’re in for an incredible adventure from the moment you set sail; during your first Atlantic crossing, you stop at the Azores to see their verdant landscapes, and at beautiful Bermuda, before visiting Cuba to revel in the unmistakable culture and history of Havana. Then, after a memorable navigation of the Panama Canal, the South American exploration begins in style; you head to Ecuador for a chance to take an overland tour to seek-out the unique wildlife – from marine iguanas to giant tortoise – of the Galapagos Islands, and to Peru to delve into the history of the Incas at Machu Picchu or Lake Titicaca on overland tours too. The Chilean leg of your journey will be an undoubted highlight; you’ll experience scenic cruising of Patagonian Fjords amongst glaciers and snow-capped peaks, sail the rugged headland of Cape Horn and visit Puerto Chacabuco, gateway to the mountains of Lower Patagonia and the Andes. Beyond Chile, discover the ‘end of the world’ from Ushuaia in Argentina and sail to remote Antarctica to see its ice-covered landscapes and wonders such as Elephant Island.

A rare visit to the Falkland Islands is an opportunity to learn of the history of this famously disputed archipelago, and go in search of its endemic species of seals, penguins and other seabirds too. In Uruguay, perhaps throw yourself into the way of Gaucho cowboy life during a visit to Montevideo, before returning to Argentina and its capital, Buenos Aires. Make the most of an overnight stay to see this city’s multitude of historic and artistic attractions, perhaps learn how to Tango and gain insight into the life of Eva Peron. Time in Brazil brings your South American adventures to an end; visits to Itajai, African-influenced Salvador, Ilhabela – a tropical paradise of lush-green lands and golden beaches – and Recife sandwich an overnight stay in Rio de Janeiro, where you can absorb the carnival culture, feel the Samba beats and of course witness iconic sights such as Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf Mountain. Finally, as you head for home back across the Atlantic, delight in visits to beautiful Cape Verde and Tenerife too.
