Visits to the Chilean Fjords and Puerto Chacabuco plus nearly 100 adventures on shore are just a couple of the highlights of Crystal Serenity’s new itinerary around the tip of South America next winter.
Sailing from Lima to Buenos Aires for the first time on February 2, 2013, the world cruise segment takes guests on a 24-night journey to a selection of sites in the Southern Hemisphere, including the Seno Eyre Fjords, the landscapes and wildlife of Patagonia, the hillsides of Valparaíso (Paradise Valley) and the birthplace of the tango.
Adventures include a visit to Antarctica, with a guided trek on King George Island and zodiac ride to view penguins in their natural habitat; an overnight option to Perito Moreno Glacier, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; hiking to the mouth of the Iguazú Falls; kayaking through the Strait of Magellan; and exploring vineyards and tasting wines.
Prices for the 'Southern Fjord Exploration' start from £10,071 per person for a fly/cruise and can be combined with other world cruise segments.
The line's 2013 complete 74-night Grand South American Exploration sails round-trip from Miami from January 16, with fares starting from £19,197 per person fly/cruise.
