Amazing cruise journeys around the world

Cruises are a great way to see the world in comfort and style. The boat is only half the story, the destinations can be quite beautiful, but are any quite as amazing as these destinations?

THE AMAZON, SOUTH AMERICA

The Amazon, Amazing cruises

River cruises travel alongside settlements and through a mix of natural environments in a way that’s impossible on the ocean. A trip down part of the 6400km-long Amazon River in South America is ideal for the adventurous traveller. While large berth cruise ships navigate the lower and central sections of the Amazon, sailing as far as Manaus in Brazil, the narrow and more remote upper Amazon in Peru is better suited to smaller riverboats. Passengers can fish for piranha, take excursions into the remote rainforest and keep watch for rare pink river dolphins and giant otters. With a third of the world’s tropical rainforest flora and animal species on either bank, your journey is bound to be filled with unforgettable sights and experiences, while the heat and humidity of the jungle are contrasted with the coolness and comfort of your vessel.
