Day 1: Australia – airplane-takeoff– Buenos Aires 

Depart Australia today for South America. On Arrival you will be met at the airport and transferred to your hotel. The rest of the afternoon is then free to get to know this colourful city and its incredible history. 

Buenos Aires, Argentina’s big, cosmopolitan capital, is known for its European atmosphere, passionate tango and vibrant nightlife. Its centre is the 16th-century Plaza de Mayo, lined with stately buildings including Casa Rosada, the iconic, balconied presidential palace. 

The birthplace of the tango is, like the dance itself, captivating, seductive and bustling with excited energy. Atmospheric old neighbourhoods are rife with romantic restaurants and Buenos Aires’ European heritage is evident in its architecture, boulevards and parks.

Day 2: Buenos Aires – Embark on Cruise (B,D)  cruise-icon

This morning after breakfast you will be collected from your hotel and transferred to the cruise terminal to board your 14 night luxury Celebrity Eclipse Antarctica cruise. 

Celebrity Eclipse is ranked among Top 20 Large Cruise Ships in the Conde Nast Traveller 2014 Reader’s Poll. Luxurious and upscale on every deck and at every turn, Celebrity Eclipse sets the standard for modern luxury vacations. Sail in style surrounded by contemporary décor. Take your taste buds on vacation with diverse dining options. Enjoy endless entertainment options from sensational shows to some tranquil time in the library.

This cruise see you sail down to the trip of South America to the Antarctic peninsula before returning back up the coast of South America and past the most Southerly settlements in the world. This not to be missed journey will leave you with life long memories of some of the most remote places in the world.

Day 3: At Sea (B,L,D)  cruise-icon

Today is a free day to do as little of as much as you like on your luxury ship as we make our way down the coast of South America towards the Southerly town of Ushuaia. 

Day 4: At Sea (B,L,D)  cruise-icon

Today is a free day to do as little of as much as you like on your luxury ship. 

Day 5: At Sea (B,L,D) cruise-icon

Day 6: Ushuaia (B,L,D)  cruise-icon

No city on the planet has a more southerly latitude. As a result, the sun shines for 18 hours during each summer day, providing ample opportunity to view the mix of glaciers, forests and sea, all framed by Mount Martial to the west and Mounts Olivia and Cinco Hermanos to the east. Go ashore to explore this outpost of civilization.

Day 7: Cape Horn (B,L,D) – No Port / Scenic Cruising Only cruise-icon

Today we sail by Cape Horn. Tierra del Fuego, Land of Fire, is the most isolated place in the Americas, and Cape Horn is its southernmost point. These craggy cliffs and windswept shores are stark, rugged beauty personified, creating a dramatic setting for the collision between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

Day 8: Schollart Channel, Paradise Bay and Gerlache Strait Antarctica (B,L,D) – No Port / Scenic Cruising Only cruise-icon

Today is a massive day cruising the Antarctic Peninsula. You are certain to leave with amazing memories, and pictures, as you cruise through Schollart Channel located near Antarctica. Take in the mesmerizing sights of massive ice flows, humpback whales, waddling penguins, leopard seals and more in their natural, and somewhat extreme, element. 

It is then on to Paradise Bay. This name aptly reflects the stunning beauty you’ll find here, just as the clear waters beautifully reflect the spectacular mountains, such as Rojas Peak, Bryde Peak, and the Petzvol Glacier. Within these waters we may see Minke whales feeding and Gentoo penguins curiously observing us from the rocky shores. 

Finish off your day in the Gerlache Strait. A number of geographical anomalies around this channel make these waters among the most plankton-rich in the world. You’re likely to see a profusion of whales feeding in the rich ecosystem, which is a sight you’ll not soon forget.

Day 9: Elephant Island, Antarctica (B,L,D) – No Port / Scenic Cruising Only cruise-icon

This tiny island in the Weddell Sea plays a role in one of seafaring history’s most legendary exploits. When the brave crew of the Endurance, led by intrepid explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton, was trapped in the ice during a 1914 polar expedition, they took refuge on this island until help arrived.

Day 10: At Sea (B,L,D) cruise-icon

Today is a free day to do as little of as much as you like on your luxury ship. 

Day 11: Port Stanley (B,L,D) cruise-icon

Make port today at Port Stanley. A commune with the roughly 2,000 intrepid souls who call this remote former whaling outpost home. As you hike through the rocky, windswept landscape you may observe a few of the island’s flightless residents—including Magellan penguins burrowing underground, and rockhoppers carefully observing you from outcroppings.

Day 12: At Sea (B,L,D)  cruise-icon

Today is a free day to do as little of as much as you like on your luxury ship. 

Day 13: Puerto Madryn (B,L,D) cruise-icon

Your ship will dock in Puerto Madryn today. This deep water port was founded in 1865 by Welsh immigrants. Extending out into the Atlantic from Puerto Madryn is the Península Valdés, a wildlife sanctuary where vast numbers of sea elephants, whales and penguins far outnumber the few human visitors who make it out this far.

Day 14: At Sea (B,L,D)  cruise-icon

Today is a free day to do as little of as much as you like on your luxury ship. 

Day 15: Montevideo (B,L,D)  cruise-icon

If ever there were a time you were inclined to indulge, delicious steaks are the specialty of the house in virtually every restaurant.

Day 16: Buenos Aires (B) 

Today, arrive back in Buenos Aires after completing your unforgettable Antarctic cruise. After disembarking, you will be met by your guide and transfer to your hotel. We then depart for a city tour of Buenos Aires. Here you will discover the heart of the city: the Plaza de Mayo and surrounds like the historic Cabildo (Town Hall) where the movement for independence from Spain was first planned; the Casa Rosada (Presidential Palace), and other old buildings. Near the Plaza you can find theatres and busy commercial areas. Then you will discover the 9 de Julio Avenue, one of the widest avenues in the world. You will also discover the main avenue of Buenos Aires: Corrientes Avenue (known as the entertainment centre) which is a street of many theatres and great night life. Also visit de Mayo Avenue, Florida Street, where you may enjoy a tango demonstration on the street. Visit one of the most residential neighbourhoods in Buenos Aires, La Recoleta: Here one gets to know why Buenos Aires is considered “Paris of the South”. Exquisite and refined, this place offers a lot of monuments and museums. You will visit the Cemetery where Evita Perón is buried. Many of the monuments of this cemetery were declared National Monuments.

This morning there is an early transfer to the airport to board your flight to Santiago, Chile. On arrival, you will be welcomed by your guide to take you to your hotel. After check-in, head our for a tour of the historic centre of Santiago. Visit the presidential palace (La Moneda), a splendid building that once housed the national mint. See and visit other sights in the historic centre like the always-bustling Plaza de Armas: the impressive cathedral; the beautiful old post office; the Palacio de la Real Audiencia, now home to the National History Museum; and the Casa Colorada, once the Spanish governor’s residence. Climb to the summit of Cerro Santa Lucía to admire the panoramic view of the city surrounded by the high mountains of the Andes. Return to your hotel for an overnight stay.

Day 18: Santiago – Vina del Mar – Valparaiso – Santiago (B) 

After breakfast, depart the hotel and drive across the Curacavi Valley to the Pacific coast and Valparaiso, Chile’s most important seaport bustling with activity. Highlights of this tour are Fisherman’s Wharf, the main square, the panoramic watchtower and Naval Academy and some of its incredibly steep streets and climbing houses that make Valparaiso a unique city.  Next visit is Viña del Mar also known as the “Garden City”, an elegant resort city where the highlights include Fine Arts museum, municipal casino, seaside Avenida Peru and the beautiful Palacio Riojo.  The tour continues along the attractive coastline road visiting the summer resorts of Renñaca, Cochoa and Concon before returning to Santiago
