    You will continue your journey down to Puerto Quetzal in Guatemala, then discover the jewels of Latin America as you cross no fewer than five countries, from the Mayan ruins of Guatemala to Machu Picchu in Peru and Ecuador and its historic centres that feature on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
    Then you will spend a few days at sea, setting sail from Callao with an opportunity to observe the endless horizons as you sit back and enjoy the comfort of our ships and get to know our crews better. On arrival at Valparaiso, you will set off on an expedition cruise to the heart of Patagonia and its spectacular glacier landscapes, fjords and winding canals.
    Next, you will sail from Ushuaia, the most southerly city in the world, to the Antarctic Peninsula, the final destination on your journey. This five-star expedition will take you right to the heart of the White Continent's icy landscape, with its drifting icebergs, pack ice and high, snow-capped mountains. Observe the rich wildlife and some unique species such as penguins, fin whales and their humped-back counterparts.
