Princess Cruises

From its modest beginnings in 1965 with a single ship cruising to Mexico, Princess has grown to become one of the premiere cruise lines in the world. Today, its fleet carries more than a million passengers each year to more worldwide destinations than any other major line. Considered one of the most recognized cruise lines in the world, Princess Cruises was catapulted to stardom in 1977 when Pacific Princess was cast in a starring role on a new television show called “The Love Boat.” The weekly series, which introduced millions of viewers to the still-new concept of a sea-going vacation, was an instant hit and both the company name and its seawitch logo have remained synonymous with cruising ever since.

    South America

    South America a variety of landscapes, sights and sounds like you’ve never seen before. From the rainforests of the Amazon to the peaks of the Andes, the glaciers of Patagonia, the beaches, the ruins of the Incan civilisation, the colonial towns and even the nightlife, everything is set to inspire awe. South America is where you go if you want to have as many things to do as possible: hike, bike, boat, swim and explore the exotic locales and creatures that the region has to offer. Take in the music—South America is famous for it, too. Sway inside the milongas of Buenos Aires, the salsotecas of Quito and the garrafeiras of Rio, or fill your spirit with the merengue of Venezuela, the trovas of Peru, the passillios of Ecuador and the forro of Brazil. The next day, you can go around the villages where colonial influences combine with native aesthetics, and experience the scenery, the history and culture that makes South America one of the ultimate tourist destinations.
