Ports of Call
Buenos Aires, Argentina - Seductive and profoundly nostalgic, only Buenos Aires could have given birth to the tango. An overnight stay gives you time to savor the city's fading, beloved European heritage, its creative intensity, the elegance of its citizens, and its famous night-owl social life.
Ilha Grande, Brazil - Brazil's third largest island, famed for its tropical scenery and gorgeous beaches, has an unusual history. It was once a leper colony and later a prison. Today the entire island is a protected area and is home to a tiny beachfront town, Vila do Abraao, where cars are banned. With fine-grain sand and clear turquoise waters, the two-mile-long Lopes Mendes Beach is virtually a postcard. Another picture-album sight is Abraao Cove, considered the most beautiful bay on the island.
Montevideo, Uruguay - Resting on the southernmost point of the Rio de la Plata, Uruguay's capital is a charming city. Tour the Establecimiento Juanico winery with buildings dating back to 1849. Wander the Plaza Independencia or take in the scenery at Estancia La Rabida.
Punta del Este, Uruguay - The Saint-Tropez of Latin America is a favorite summer playground of southernmost South America. Sail the calmer waters or lounge on the beach along a 20-mile shoreline. And witness the big waves breaking at la Brava.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - Christ the Redeemer, one of the modern Seven Wonders of the World, stands atop the Corcovado peak. Survey the city from a platform below the 125-foot statue or hop on a cable car to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain and get a different perspective of Rio and the Christ. Feel a rush to your senses from the awesome activity on world-famous beaches Ipanema and Copacabana. If the quiet side of Rio is what you seek, a visit to the lush botanical garden – home to some 8,000 species – will delight you
Sao Paulo (Santos), Brazil - Hop on a tour of Brazil's largest city, Sao Paulo, about 50 miles away. The Pinacoteca do Estado de Sao Paulo and Ibirapuera Park, site of a number of architecturally significant buildings, are popular stops, while the Jardins District is a mecca for shopping. Santos offers a relaxed environment. Gonzaga Beach resembles a resort on the French Riviera. Also lovely is Enseada Beach, in Guaruja, just across the estuary from Santos. Coffee lovers will enjoy a visit to Santos' Museu do Cafe (Coffee Museum), housed in a former palace

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.
