Things to Do on a South America Cruise with Cunard Line


Cunard’s South America cruises highlight some of the continent’s most impressive cities and natural landmarks, but the choice is ultimately up to you as to how you’d like to spend your time in South America. If you’re pulled by the art and history, spend your days in the world-class museums or join a heritage tour of Valparaiso. And if it’s the wildlife and natural beauty that attracts you most, you’ll be thrilled with your time in Ushuaia where you’ll see penguins and glaciers. And then there’s Rio de Janeiro, where there’s no mistaking the striking scenery of high-rise beach resorts nestled amongst the towering mountains. Listed below are some of the special excursions available on a South America cruise from Cunard Line:
