12 Night carnaval journey

Spend the day in sunny Buenos Aires, perusing the city’s colorful murals and European architecture before making sail for Montevideo, Uruguay. One of South America's most intriguing and diverse capitals, take time in port to explore Montevideo’s incredible 19th-century landmarks, historical monuments, and beautiful parks.

Two days at sea gives you the perfect excuse to experience all that your boutique hotel at sea has to offer—from spa treatments to exquisite dining—while building your excitement for Carnaval. The pinnacle moment of this voyage, settle in for two energetic nights celebrating a Rio de Janeiro tradition that goes back to the 1700s. We visit during the peak of Carnaval festivities—including Fat Tuesday—and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more exhilarating and memorable festival anywhere on earth.

After an excitement-packed two nights in Rio, it’s back up Brazil’s coast and on to Ilhabela, or “beautiful island.” With over 40 beaches, it’s easy to see why this island more than lives up to its name. A popular destination for locals and visitors alike, you can sail, surf, scuba dive, or partake in virtually any water sport while in port.

In São Paulo, Brazil, discover one of the largest and most diverse metropolitan areas on earth. From incredible museums to delicious food and rich cultural landmarks, it’s easy to discover local flavor in São Paulo.

After two days of cruising back up the coast, take a moment to discover the beautiful white sand beaches and fashionable streets of Punta del Este, Uruguay. Your voyage concludes back in Buenos Aires, the chic, cosmopolitan capital of Argentina.
