Show / hide full Day by Day Itinerary
Your journey begins with a flight to Buenos Aires, the “Paris of South America,” where you will be met by your Local Host. This cosmopolitan city is constantly aglow with European-influenced culture, vibrant sounds and colours, and a distinctly Latin vibe. Countless museums, tree-lined boulevards, and great shopping await during the day. Tango shows, live music, great food, and a surging nightlife await in the evenings.
❱ Hotel stay: Buenos Aires (3 nights)
After breakfast, your private city tour takes you along the widest avenue in the world to see the Colon Theatre, the pride of Buenos Aires. You’ll also visit the Avenida de Mayo and Plaza de Mayo, surrounded by La Casa Rosada (the President’s Pink House), and the Cabildo, which was the first City Hall. Visit the Metropolitan cathedral, which houses San Martin’s Mausoleum and is a centre for religious celebrations. Continue to the oldest district in Buenos Aires, San Telmo, where you can find dozens of little shops around the main plaza, then stop by colourful La Boca and Palermo. Finish your city tour with a visit to Recoleta Cemetery, burial site of Eva Peron and a highlight of the city. This evening, you may opt to enjoy dinner and a traditional Tango show- Argentina’s most sensual dance.
Today is free to explore this extraordinary city. Consider an optional excursion to visit a traditional estancia (ranch) to experience the lifestyle of the gauchos, or cruise down the Tigre River surrounded by beautiful landscapes and impressive homes.
Head back to Ezeiza Airport where you will be transferred to the port for your cruise aboard the Coral Princess.
Last refurbished in 2016, the Coral Princess carries approximately 2,000 guests and was custom built to navigate the historic Panama Canal. Be sure to try the Bayou Café and Steakhouse, which features New Orleans-inspired Cajun and Creole cuisine, join friends for cocktails and Movies Under the Stars® by the pool or try some decadent treats at the International Café.
❱ Ocean cruise: Coral Princess (16 nights)
Nestled between the continent’s two giants, Brazil and Argentina, Uruguay is the second smallest country in South America. More than half of the nation’s population of three million reside in the capital of Montevideo, located at Uruguay’s southernmost point on the Rio de la Plata. Although small in size, Uruguay has proven to be big-hearted – the country is one of the most literate nations in the world while Montevideo is one of South America’s most interesting and cosmopolitan capitals.
Enjoy 2 days at sea aboard the Coral Princess. Each day, a world of exciting activities awaits, from cooking demonstrations to dance classes, trivia contests and a range of enrichment programs, including our Encounters with Discovery at SEA™ speaker series from experts who offer insights into the places you’ll visit.
Capital of the Falklands since 1845, tiny Stanley lies on the windswept tip of East Falkland Island. The Falklands long served as a way station for ships, particularly whalers, bound to and from Cape Horn. The islands’ rigorous environment is immediately apparent: Stanley Harbor is dotted with the hulks of vessels that succumbed to the fierce winds and waves of the South Atlantic. While their strategic location led to important roles in both World Wars, the islands are best remembered as the cause of the 1982 war between Argentina and the United Kingdom. Today, travelers increasingly journey to the islands to view their rich assortment of bird and marine life.
Colorful houses occupy the low rolling moorland bordering Stanley Harbor. Stanley’s climate resembles London’s – cool and rainy though summer visitors are often blessed with clear, sunny skies.
Enjoy another scenic day of cruising aboard the Coral Princess as you sail across to Antarctica.
The most isolated continent on earth, this rugged landscape is some 1,200 miles long and reaches beyond the Arctic Circle. Its shores are comprised of unusually sculpted icebergs, blue-tinged glaciers, majestic mountain peaks and a steep ice shelf that continues to shrink at an alarming rate.
Though the peninsula is covered in icy tundra, it actually features the mildest climate in Antarctica, the perfect environment for hosting the only flowering plants on the entire continent, Antarctic Hair Grass and Antarctic Pearlwort. In addition, the icy waters surrounding the peninsula cater to various species of seals, penguins and seabirds, including the Cape Pigeon, the American Sheathbill and the Antarctic Tern.
Enjoy your scenic cruise in this remote area of the world – it’s a breathtaking wonderland nestled in nature’s frosty embrace.
Enjoy a scenic day of cruising today as you travel around spectacular Cape Horn.
Magellan called it Tierra del Fuego, “the Land of Fire,” having seen flames rising from the darkened islands. For over three centuries, the name struck fear in the hearts of mariners. Howling headwinds, mountainous seas and rocky coastlines spelled a sudden end to many voyages. Today, Ushuaia, a former Argentine penal colony, serves as your gateway to this wilderness where snow-capped mountains plummet to the icy waters of the Beagle Channel.
In the late 19th century, Reverend Thomas Bridges spent years working with local tribes, compiling a dictionary of their Yaghan tongue. The work outlived the Yaghan: by the beginning of the 20th century, they had succumbed to disease.
Punta Arenas lies atop rolling hills, looking out over the Strait of Magellan. In the days before the Panama Canal, this was a major port as ships plied the waters of Cape Horn. Punta Arenas remains a prosperous town today, thanks to its rich natural resources. The city is also the gateway to Chilean Patagonia, a maze of fjords, rivers, steppes, and mountains to the north. To the south lies the great frozen mass of Antarctica. Adventure awaits in any direction at this port located near the end of the earth.
Across the Strait of Magellan lies Tierra del Fuego, the lonely, windswept island discovered by Magellan in 1520. The region was settled by Yugoslavian and English sheep ranchers in the 19th century.
Enjoy another 3 days of scenic cruising aboard the Coral Princess as you sail around the west coast of South America.
Sadly today marks the end of your cruise in San Antonio. Disembark the Coral Princess after breakfast and be transferred to your accommodation in Santiago. Santiago is Chile’s scenic capital between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes. With a coastline over 4,265 kilometres (2,650 miles) long, Chile is more than 10 times longer than wide. With a distinctly European flavour accented with Latin flair, Santiago is one of South America’s most sophisticated and modern cities.
❱ Hotel stay: Santiago (3 nights)
Located in the centre of the country, Santiago has evolved as the country’s political, commercial, and cultural capital. Step back into the 16th century on your private tour, as your Local Guide traces the city’s history and heritage. Start at La Moneda, the official Government Palace, and nearby San Cristobal Hill with its landmark statue of the Virgin Mary. Your tour ends at the Plaza de Armas, the main square, with a visit to the 18th-century cathedral.
Today is at leisure. Perhaps take a trip to the beautiful coastal region west of Santiago and the cities of Valparaiso and Vina del Mar, or head into Chile’s famous wine country to visit some of its renowned wineries.
Your holiday ends after breakfast today. You will be transferred from your hotel to Santiago Airport in time for your flight home.
Arrive back in Australia this afternoon on your flight from Santiago.
