What can you expect on a cruise to South America? Penguins, perhaps? You can indeed enjoy the charming sight of penguins on a visit to the Falkland Islands. And then there is the enchantment of lush rain forest in Brazil, the majesty of the snow-capped Andes range in Chile, the festivity of the tango-crazed city of Buenos Aires, also home to the wondrous old churches whose spires still tower over the streets. All this and more can be seen and experienced on Royal Caribbean Cruises to South America.
Your cruise will take you to Uruguay, the second-smallest independent country in South America. Although it is not yet a familiar name, Uruguay holds many attractions to travelers. Its coast can boast of incredibly beautiful beaches, perhaps the loveliest you will see on your journey, where you can enjoy such leisure activities as parasailing and horseback riding.
A visit to Brazil will acquaint you with the lushness and splendor of the largest country in South America, which also happens to be the fifth largest country in the world. Among the main attractions of Brazil that you will certainly want to see is the famed statue of Christ the Redeemer. Standing 125 feet tall above the skyline of Rio de Janeiro skyline, the statue is a marvel of art, engineering, and religious devotion. Brazil is also a land of delightful beaches, where partygoers from all over the world converge to have fun in the warm sun and enjoy the local food and entertainment.
Other stops on the cruise include Argentina, a country known to world over due to the musical and movie “Evita.” It is a place you would not want to miss. Argentina is home to Mendoza, one of the eight wine capitals of the world. And then there is Chile, a long wedge-shaped country that hugs the border of Argentina. Chile offers the experience of seeing the grand spectacle of the Andes Mountains and the excitement of sailing around Cape Horn, the southernmost tip of the South American continent.
