Cruising in South and Central America is as varied as the terrain and cultures. Uncruise in Baja, where you can snorkel, kayak and whale watch from a small vessel. Transit partially across the Panama Canal or do a full crossing. Choose a cruise in the Galapagos from 3 to 7 nights and longer. River cruises on the Amazon vary from the luxurious Aria departing from Iquitos, Peru to the classic riverboats Desafio and Tucano, which depart upriver from Manaus, Brazil. Or take the #1 Small Ship Cruise, (as rated by Travel and Leisure), the Stella Australis between Punta Arenas and Ushuaia. The most accessible way to experience Antarctica is a cruise in the icy waters of the Drake Passage, the Antarctic Peninsula, the Polar Circle and the South Shetland Islands. Most cruises have options for land excursions to experience the wildlife and culture of the area. In addition most have snorkeling and kayaking options.
