When cruising South America, you have two options in cruising the coast of Chile. The first option is to depart from Buenos Aires, Argentina, and dock at Valparaiso, Chile. From Valparaiso the trip to Santiago is approximately forty-five (45) minutes to one and half (1-1/2) hours over the mountains. The second option is the reverse and you will see the Chilean Fjords, Argentina, and parts of Brazil. Using frequent flyer points will save you on either of these cruises.
Cruise line megaships are taking the cruise world by storm. With never-before-seen activities and amenities (plus previously unheard of square footage), mega cruise ships have something onboard for everyone. The most well-known megaships are Royal Caribbean‘s “World’s Largest Cruise Ships”, the Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas. They’re not the only megaships sailing the earth’s waters, though. Norwegian Cruise Line‘s Norwegian Epic and brand new Norwegian Breakaway ships are 155,873 and 146,600 gross tons, respectively, and have over 20 different restaurants onboard.
Started by the French and completed by the United States, the Panama Canal is now the biggest man-made canal in the world! When you sail from the east or the west it takes a full day but you are constantly in awe of the technology and engineering it requires to move massive ships through the canal. Panama is only open in milder times of the year due to the tropical climate and that makes summer the perfect time to book your trip to Panama.
Italy is such a fabulous country, I have personally been there five times. A lot of people usually take a cruise from Roma (Rome) to Venice, passing by the boot on the way. Florence is a neat town, located in the heart of Tuscany. An absolutely spatular view is that of the Molfi cost down by Naples. In the northern part of the country, you have Lake Como and Milan, or pronounced [miˈlaːno]. Italy is widely known for its food, come hungry, because you cannot get a bad meal!
