With Seabourn, these once-distant dreams can become a tangible reality. 

Embarking on an adventure through some of the planet's most remote and awe-inspiring landscapes—a dream reserved for the fortunate few. The mere thought of exploring the Amazon River by Zodiac, kayaking through ice covered fjords, or wandering amidst penguin colonies in Antarctica feels like a distant fantasy. Yet, with Seabourn Expedition Cruises, these once-distant dreams can become a tangible reality.


Seabourn’s ultra-luxury cruises to South America unveil the amazing variety of cultural, historical, and natural wonders to be found there. Vibrant, modern cities with picturesque, colonial hearts; long-lost monuments of vanished civilizations, and landscapes of breathtaking beauty. Their voyages to South America let cruisers survey the colorful colonial cities of Brazil, the broad golden beaches, the dramatic Chilean fjords, and the lush forests of the Amazon basin. Continue cruising south to experience the untouched, diverse wildlife of Antarctica.


Discovering the Enigmatic Amazon

For centuries, the Amazon River, discovered by European explorers in 1542, has captivated the world with its sheer size and biodiversity. Stretching for nearly 4,000 miles (6,437 kilometers) and snaking through six South American countries—Peru, Bolivia, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, and Brazil—it reigns supreme as the world's largest river by volume and possibly even by length. This labyrinthine waterway traverses the heart of the Amazon Rainforest, one of the most diverse ecosystems on Earth, teeming with unique species like the water-walking basilisk (aptly nicknamed "Jesus Lizard"), the playful pink river dolphin, and the awe-inspiring giant water lilies reaching diameters of 10 feet.


Antarctica: A Timeless Majesty

Antarctica—undetected for most of recorded time, lying beyond the margins of the known world. Even after its discovery, its isolation and the rigors of the journey kept all but the most intrepid away. Those who did return ran short of superlatives to describe its magnificence. We go to Antarctica in a style undreamed by those ardent early pioneers. But what awaits us there—the snowy, sentinel mountain ranges, teeming penguin colonies, and stately parades of monumental icebergs; the sight of an albatross effortlessly gliding across an ink-blue sea and the unexpected rainbow of mist arising from a breaching whale—all of that is virtually unchanged from the time before its discovery.

That is the magic of Antarctica, its timeless majesty and pristine beauty. Those who have seen it claim it’s impossible to adequately describe, that you must go yourself. We believe that is an excellent suggestion, and one we can assist travelers in accomplishing. Guests will be accompanied by a veteran Expedition Team, who in many cases have made Antarctica the focus of their life’s work. They’ll tell you what they know, point out what they think you ought to see, and step ashore with you to share the profound experience of adventure and discovery that brings them back year after year.
