Azamara Quest
Sailing: 10 December 2023

Spend Christmas in South America

Prepare for an adventure like no other on this 20-night voyage through an elemental wonderland this winter when you spend Christmas with Azamara. We depart from beautiful Buenos Aires for a late-night stay in Montevideo, Uruguay. Spend the day exploring Old Town (starting from Plaza Independencia) or strolling La Rambla. While visiting, be sure to try a parrillada—a local speciality of perfectly grilled meat and seafood.

Next, enjoy three days aboard your boutique hotel at sea before arriving for another late stay in Ushuaia—awash in natural beauty and your gateway to Tierra del Fuego National Park. Hop aboard the "End of the World” antique train and don't forget to send a postcard! From here, it’s a day at sea before we spend three incredible days cruising the breathtaking Antarctic Sound. As we drift through a world of brilliant blue icebergs, keep your eyes peeled for penguin rookeries and whales breaching the icy waters.

If you haven’t already, take in an indulgent treatment over the next two days at sea—and be sure to savor some delicious specialty dining at Aqualina and Prime C. Next, call on the Falkland Islands and Port Stanley—home of the southernmost Anglican cathedral in the world, Christ Church Cathedral. After another day spent sailing, we’ll arrive in the Argentinian port of Puerto Madryn for a late stay. Here, explore the Punta Tombo National Reserve and snap some photos of the half million penguins who live throughout this sprawling sanctuary.

Following two more sailing days while we celebrate Christmas at sea, it’s on to Punta del Este, Uruguay. This artsy enclave is home to the famous white sand Brava Beach and a beautiful harborfront bustling with live music and Latin flair. Don't miss a visit to Carlos Paez Vilaro's atelier at Casapueblo or the Ralli Museum. Your voyage then concludes with two days at sea before arriving in wonderful Rio de Janeiro, just in time to ring in the new year.
