Amazon, West Indies & the Azores Cruise Highlights

Vast Explore charming Amsterdam, historic Lisbon and Funchal on Madeira, the ‘floating garden of the Atlantic’. Visit remote Cape Verde stepping ashore in Mindelo with cobblestone streets and candy-coloured colonial buildings. Enjoy the activities on board as you cruise to South America and bustling Santarem, your gateway to the mighty Amazon River. Witness indigenous Amazonian lifestyle first hand in the remote jungle village of Boca da Valeria before calling in Manaus, the city at the heart of the Amazon. Enjoy an overnight stay with a full programme of optional tours including a boat trip to view the incredible ‘Meeting of the Waters’. In Parintins you might choose to take in a lively and colourful show recreating the spectacular Boi Bumba Festival. Magellan then calls in Alter do Chão where the blue-green waters of the Tapajos River lap at white sand beaches. Continue to Santana, a gateway to Macapá straddling the equator. Stop at Îles du Salut, known as ‘Devil’s Island’ and made famous by the film Papillon. Grenada with its pretty capital St. George’s, scenic St Vincent and Bequia in the Grenadines, stunning St. Lucia with its famous pitons and beautiful Barbados give a wonderful taste of the Caribbean before you discover the Azores with calls in Horta and Ponta Delgada on your homeward voyage.

Amazon, West Indies & the Azores Cruise Highlights

Discover a world of tropical rainforest and amazing wildlife on this truly ultimate voyage of discovery to the Amazon combined with Caribbean and Atlantic islands. Here are some of the highlights.

    Approximately 100 dancers and musicians will thrill you at the Boi Bumba Festival show in Parintins. A mesmerising carnival of music and dance with flamboyant costumes and infectious rhythms.

    From Manaus, visit an ecological park for a close up view of the jungle vegetation and trees. Keep your eyes open for wildlife such as parrots and toucans, and you may be lucky enough to witness the giant Victoria Regia water lilies in bloom.

    From Santarem, in the midst of the Amazonian jungle, there’s a chance to see rubber and Brazil nut trees, explore the beautiful lush surroundings and perhaps fish for piranhas at Maica Lake.

    Despite Antigua boasting beaches, beaches and more beaches, make sure you take in historic Nelson’s Dockyard and Clarence House at English Harbour.

    Enjoy your final landfall in Ponta Delgada on the island of São Miguel in the Azores. Stretch your legs in the narrow streets and the paved squares with their geometric designs of black & white mosaics.

Highlights may be subject to booking specific shore excursions and are subject to operation and weather conditions.

 

Note:

In the event of adverse weather/sea conditions that prevent the ship from calling at one of the scheduled ports, alternative arrangements will be made where possible.
