Luxury South America Cruises: Vast Beauty

South American cruises are among the most desirable and enjoyable holiday packages available. The tropical climate and relaxed atmosphere of South America combine. While onboard their ship, passengers will find their days occupied with various forms of entertainment and diversions, such as games, shows, instruction and classes, as well as organised entertainment. For those looking for less structured activities, there are options such as relaxing beside the pool or getting to know new friends and exploring the public areas of the ship.

About South America cruises

The voyage is broken up by stopovers in several ports of call, which are designed to give passengers an opportunity to see something of the countries they are visiting. Once South America comes into view, visitors will have opportunities to view wildlife even before disembarking. Colourful flocks of birds can often be seen flitting through the jungle canopies and dolphins are often seen swimming close to the ships, leaping through the azure waters. Alligators are sometimes spotted basking in the sun along the coastline.

Once ashore, golden sun smiles down on vast expanses of pristine white sandy beaches, the perfect backdrop for water sports, fishing, bathing, surfing, rafting and beach volleyball. For the less energetic, simply lounging along the beaches and soaking up the sun is a popular pastime. The shopping in Rio de Janeiro is not to be missed and for visitors who plan their trip around the famous carnival celebrations, a cultural immersion like no other awaits.

The Rio Carnival is renowned the world over for the festive music, dancing and incredible cuisine. The streets are lined with parades and parties throughout the weeklong celebration, as natives and tourists alike join in the fiesta. Visitors lucky enough to be in Rio during Reveillon (New Year) will be treated to a world-class firework display. Local foods, such as arroz, feijao and farinha are available, as well as the international dishes served in the many fine dining restaurants, pubs and cafes that line the streets. The pageantry, music and fiesta atmosphere of carnival make it one of the most engaging and exciting experiences to be had when visiting Brazil.

For sun-worshipers, South America is a mecca of sand, featuring some of the most pristine and beautiful beaches in the world. Copacabana’s four kilometres of sparkling white sand beckons surfers to Diablo Beach, which is known around the world for its great surf. Nearby, Ipanema Beach graces a residential neighbourhood with some of the best restaurants, cafes and shops in all of Brazil.

Fancy a shady stroll? The rainforest and animal preserves offer visitors opportunities to get up close and personal with some of the South American wildlife and guided tours provide chances to see some of the most beautiful and breathtaking vistas anywhere in the world.

South America is a land of tropical paradise, with rolling beaches, sparkling clear waters, friendly locals and some of the finest cuisine in the world. As if all that were not enough, the shopping, museums, art galleries and music and festivities of carnival and other fiestas make South America the perfect destination recommended by Adore cruises.
