Saga passengers’ demand for exciting, adventure cruising will be satisfied by circumnavigating South America on an action-packed grand voyage of 18,718 miles! 

Guests can wave goodbye to winter as Saga Pearl II sails from Southampton to four enchanting Caribbean Islands before crossing the Pacific, via the 100-year-old Panama Canal.

The Galapagos Islands, ancient cities of Peru, Chilean vineyards and lakes await before cruising around Cape Horn on the southern-most tip of South America. Guests will meet the penguins in the remote Falklands Islands and there will be a maiden port of call at Colonia del Sacremento, in Uruguay.

With two full days in Buenos Aires, Argentina, there will be time to tour the colourful La Boca neighbourhood, visit a prairie ranch and soak up the Latin American rhythm at a tango show.
