PORTS OF CALL

Buenos Aires, Argentina - Seductive and profoundly nostalgic, only Buenos Aires could have given birth to the tango. An overnight stay gives you time to savor the city's fading, beloved European heritage, its creative intensity, the elegance of its citizens, and its famous night-owl social life.

Montevideo, Uruguay - Resting on the southernmost point of the Rio de la Plata, Uruguay's capital is a charming city. Tour the Establecimiento Juanico winery with buildings dating back to 1849. Wander the Plaza Independencia or take in the scenery at Estancia La Rabida.

Punta del Este, Uruguay - The Saint-Tropez of Latin America is a favorite summer playground of southernmost South America. Sail the calmer waters or lounge on the beach along a 20-mile shoreline. And witness the big waves breaking at la Brava.

At Sea - Cruising - Cruising

Sao Paulo (Santos), Brazil - Hop on a tour of Brazil's largest city, Sao Paulo, about 50 miles away. The Pinacoteca do Estado de Sao Paulo and Ibirapuera Park, site of a number of architecturally significant buildings, are popular stops, while the Jardins District is a mecca for shopping. Santos offers a relaxed environment. Gonzaga Beach resembles a resort on the French Riviera. Also lovely is Enseada Beach, in Guaruja, just across the estuary from Santos. Coffee lovers will enjoy a visit to Santos' Museu do Cafe (Coffee Museum), housed in a former palace

Ilhabela, Brazil - Ilhabela literally means 'beautiful island' and indeed it is, with its volcanic peaks, beautiful beaches, tropical jungle and a staggering 360 waterfalls. The UNESCO-protected biosphere is home to toucans and capuchin monkeys, shipwrecks and mountains, making it a favorite destination for divers, hikers, surfers and beach-bums alike.

Buzios, Brazil - This peninsula beach resort, made popular in the 1960s by Brigitte Bardot, boasts more than 20 beaches, with those to the west experiencing calmer water than the east-facing Praia's, which are ideal for surfers and windsurfers. Boating, scuba diving and surfing are the most popular activities here, with excellent schools for novices wishing to learn. When the sun dips, enjoy delicious, fresh seafood at one of the popular pay-by-the-kilo restaurants before drinking and dancing the night away at one of the town's popular bars or nightclubs.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - Christ the Redeemer, one of the modern Seven Wonders of the World, stands atop the Corcovado peak. Survey the city from a platform below the 125-foot statue or hop on a cable car to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain and get a different perspective of Rio and the Christ. Feel a rush to your senses from the awesome activity on world-famous beaches Ipanema and Copacabana. If the quiet side of Rio is what you seek, a visit to the lush botanical garden—home to some 8,000 species—will delight you!
