South American Sojourn: Buenos Aires to Manaus

This diverse itinerary is new for 2023 and gets you closer to the rich cultures and unique charms of three countries - Argentina, Uruguay, and Brazil - letting you savor the sights, sounds, and flavors of this beautiful continent. You’ll witness unparalleled wildlife in the Amazon, fall in love with the charm of Uruguay, immerse yourself in the history and traditions of Carnival, and visit iconic sites throughout your journey along the southeastern coastline of South America.

The Amazon Coast

Immerse yourself in the breathtaking wonder of the Amazon

Birdwatching in the Amazon

Spot some of the colorful and fascinating birds of this region, like the large-billed toucan and scarlet macaw.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Marvel at the scenic vistas and vibrant culture of Rio de Janeiro, home of the sultry samba and the famed Ipanema Beach.

Optional Extension to Amazon Jungle

In scale and biodiversity, there is no other rain forest like the Amazon. More than 1,000 bird species, 300 types of mammals, and 45,000 species of plants are spread over a jungle the size of the contiguous United States. Enhance your expedition with a thrilling exploration of this breathtaking place. You’ll get around like the locals do, by boat, and have up-close views of monkeys and safari outings to spot fascinating birdlife, nocturnal alligators, and more. You’ll call an eco-friendly lodge your home, dining on freshly prepared meals of exotic fruits and fresh ingredients and retiring each evening to your own bungalow where the songs of the forest lull you to sleep.

Optional Extension to Iguassu Falls, Brazil

When Eleanor Roosevelt first laid eyes on Iguassu Falls, she is famously said to have uttered, “Poor Niagara!” It’s easy to understand what overwhelmed the First Lady. This torrent of water separating Brazil and Argentina plunges over 200-foot-high cliffs in a roaring fury of water. (In fact, Iguassu translates roughly from the local Guarani into “great water.”) Judging from Ms. Roosevelt’s reaction, you’ll want to extend your expedition to view Brazil’s other breathtaking natural wonder. Explore the cataracts from both countries, getting as close to the falls as the spraying mist allows. Join us on this thrilling adventure!

Ocean Explorer

Cruise on the Ocean Explorer, an agile and state-of-the-art expedition vessel that can navigate to places larger ships can’t

Enrique Virto, Cruise Director

Traveling for me is like breathing.” So says Vantage Cruise Director Enrique Virto, who was born in Cusco; Peru, and has led travelers to 30 different countries on five continents. Enrique studied Peruvian history in Cusco, Philosophy and Psychology in Paris; and ultimately received a degree with licensure in tourism. As an avid outdoorsman, Enrique says his favorite places are those where he can introduce travelers to natural wonders and variable terrain, among them Machu Picchu, and the Galapagos.

Patricio Thijjsen

Your Vantage trip will be led by a seasoned Cruise Director who will ensure your comfort and satisfaction. Think of him or her as your onboard “host” — the person to turn to with questions about your itinerary, updates on the day’s activities, reservations for optional tours, and so much more.
