Date Port Arrival Departure
Jan 30, Monday Lima/Callao, Peru » Embark am
 
Lima is called the City of Kings, but a more appropriate nickname might be the City of Museums. Over 20 museums can keep you busy for hours, if not days. One museum displays pottery and textiles from Peru’s ancient civilizations; another exhibits 55,000 ceramic pieces; still another is a morbid yet fascinating Museum of the Inquisition. Headquarters of the Spanish Inquisition for nearly three centuries, the building features not just the expected dungeons, but also a beautiful columned façade and carved mahogany ceiling.
Lima’s streets are something of a museum in and of themselves. Mansions in the colonial district are adorned by ornate balconies. Churches are gorgeous and historic. The monastery at the church of San Francisco, for example, has a room of paintings by Pieter Paul Rubens and Van Dyck.
Jan 31, Tuesday General St. Martín/Pisco, Peru » 8 am 5 pm
 
A bustling harbor town, General San Martín is named after Peru’s most revered hero. General San Martin united Argentinean and Chilean armies and ended Spanish rule over Argentina, Chile and Peru. In July 1821, he traveled to Lima and made a grand declaration of Peru’s independence. Honoring his achievement, an entire region, not to mention this thriving port, bears his name.
Feb 1, Wednesday Cruising the Coast of Peru »
 
 
Feb 2, Thursday Matarani, Peru » 8 am 5 pm
 
The small fishing port of Matarani is your gateway to one of the most stunning spots on the Peruvian map: Arequipa, the UNESCO-listed town surrounded by three volcanoes, each towering at heights of around 20,000 feet. Arequipa is the second largest city in Peru, but deems itself the most distinguished, not only for its spectacular setting and pretty town center featuring brilliant white buildings made of volcanic stone called sillar, but also for its intellectual vivacity. The city draws thinkers, politicians and entrepreneurs, all eager to gather in the historic quarter to discuss deep subjects over a drink or demonstrate over an important cause in the Plaza de Armas. Outdoorsy people are lured here, too, for chances to climb, raft and hike the breathtaking landscape.
Feb 3, Friday Iquique, Chile » 9 am 6 pm
 
Iquique might be described as an American Old-West town with a South American address. A history of mining and a pedestrian area with wooden sidewalks certainly evoke images of cowboys and gold mines. Throw in restored Georgian and Victorian architecture, duty-free shopping, wide swaths of beach and a sea with terrific surfing and paragliding, and you have not America’s frontier but one of Chile’s premiere beach resorts. Visitors take rooms at the high-rise hotels and bargain hunters pounce on deals on perfume and electronics, while others make a sure bet of a good time at the glitzy casino.
Feb 4, Saturday Antofagasta, Chile » 10 am 6 pm
 
A city with roots in mining and more recently crafted into a shiny, seaside resort, Antofagasta entices visitors with an ocean to the west, a desert to the east and an Old Town plaza at its heart. Victorian and Georgian buildings in its Barrio Histórico speak to an affluent past, while skyscrapers and plentiful shopping embrace the modern-day currencies of convenience and abundance. Venture 46 miles south to encounter a remarkable landmark, or more accurately, handmark: a 36-foot-tall sculpture of a hand that rises from the arid landscape, made of iron and cement and created by artist Mario Irarrázabal. A stunning work of nature can be seen 11 miles north of the city. La Portada, or The Gateway, is a natural sea arch measuring 140 feet high and 75 feet wide and surrounded by rugged cliffs, also shaped by water and wind.
Feb 5, Sunday Cruising the Coast of Chile »
 
 
Feb 6, Monday Coquimbo, Chile » 8 am 5pm
 
As both a gateway to other interesting places and a destination unto itself, Coquimbo is one of Chile’s gems. Even the town’s name hints at its allure, as “Coquimbo” is derived from a native Diaguita word meaning “place of calm waters.”

These days, and even as far back as the 16th century when Coquimbo was popular with pirates and privateers such as Sir Francis Drake, the town is bustling with activity. It serves not only as a commercial center for the export of the region’s fish and fruit, but also as a launching point for trips to the resort town of La Serena and to the Elqui Valley, a spot famous for its clear atmospheric conditions and Tololo Observatory.

Feb 7, Tuesday Valparaíso, Chile (overnight) » 8 am
 
Valparaíso, the “Vale of Paradise,” has a population of almost 300,000 and is Chile’s principal seaport and home to Chile’s Congress. It climbs a crescent of 45 hills creating a maze of alleys, winding streets, connecting stairs and funicular railways. The port and business center lies at the foot of the hills, in a narrow belt of flatland. Having experienced the rich culture and history of this popular port city, you will realize how ingenuity has transformed this abrupt stretch of coastline into one of the world’s most picturesque and famous port cities.

Nearby lies flower-bedecked Viña del Mar, where the wealthy and powerful come to play in the sun and at the casino. And just 20 minutes from Valparaíso, this beach resort city, also popularly known as the “Garden City,” boasts white-sand beaches, notable museums and a variety of carefully designed parks and beautiful public spaces.

Farther afield, the churches, colonial grandeur and sophistication of Santiago beckon for exploration and discovery.

Feb 8, Wednesday Valparaíso, Chile » Disembark am
