South America & Panama Canal

Seabourn Ship in Panama CanalThis exotic, mysterious and magical region of the world is a feast for all five senses.

South America’s colourful cultures and alluring history feed your appetite for adventure and it becomes contagious. This is the region where you will experience contrasting cities, stunning archaeological ruins, icy fjords, lush dense jungles and landscapes so remote that they’ve rarely been seen by anyone but the most intrepid explorers.

With imagery that can only be described as otherworldly, sail Cape Horn’s magnificent coastline, explore the misty ruins of Machu Picchu, discover the energetic vibe of Rio de Janeiro and much more. And if that’s not enough, legendary Antarctica lies just beyond with its towering cliffs of blue ice. Without a doubt, it’s a fascinating destination to explore.

From the Panama Canal’s opening day to present, nearly a million ships have passed through the mighty locks. Encompassing tragedy and triumph, Spanish kings, conquistadors and five different American presidents, the building of this massive project spanned 400 years. And today, nearly 100 years after its completion, the Panama Canal remains one of the most vital trade routes in the world.

In addition to Panama’s man-made marvel, this voyage includes some of nature’s most amazing creations in the Caribbean, Mexico and Central America.
