The just-released 72-page brochure features new itineraries covering 26 different countries and is a handy reference for anyone planning a trip to Central or South America. A selection of polar and tropical expeditions, as well as luxury cruises, vary from seven to 13 nights. Many of the itineraries feature the new Explorer ships Le Champlain and Le Dumont-d’Urville, and have an emphasis on cultural discoveries and encounters with local populations.
Highlights include the Great Blue Hole in Belize, diving in the Grenadines, transiting the Panama Canal, ancient Mayan sites and meeting the remote Warao people of the Orinoco.
