Why not let summertime mean revelling in the beauty of Brazilian seaside retreats or exploring some of the most exotic regions of South America? The Buenos Aires to Rio de Janeiro itinerary is an often-overlooked cruise, but offers a multi-faceted adventure full of memorable encounters: carefree days in sun-kissed spots like the emerald-green bay surrounding the beaches of Porto Belo, cultural treasures such as the beautifully preserved colonial centre of Parati and the exploding culinary scenes of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
Other highlights in the 2021-2022 Tropics & Exotics Collection include Oceania Cruises’ Amazon voyages, which combine rainforest explorations with enticing Caribbean destinations, as well as thrilling expeditions around the southern tip of South America – one of which ventures even farther southward to cruise past several stunning Antarctic islands.
