About

Recommended for:
Ocean cruise

Spend the day in sunny Buenos Aires, perusing the city’s colorful murals and European architecture before making sail for Montevideo, Uruguay. One of South America's most intriguing and diverse capitals, take time in port to explore Montevideo’s incredible 19th-century landmarks, historical monuments, and beautiful parks.

Two days at sea gives you the perfect excuse to experience all that your boutique hotel at sea has to offer—from spa treatments to exquisite dining—while building your excitement for Carnaval. The pinnacle moment of this voyage, settle in for two energetic nights celebrating a Rio de Janeiro tradition that goes back to the 1700s. We visit during the peak of Carnaval festivities—including Fat Tuesday—and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more exhilarating and memorable festival anywhere on earth.

After an excitement-packed two nights in Rio, it’s back up Brazil’s coast and on to Ilhabela, or “beautiful island.” With over 40 beaches, it’s easy to see why this island more than lives up to its name. A popular destination for locals and visitors alike, you can sail, surf, scuba dive, or partake in virtually any water sport while in port.

In São Paulo, Brazil, discover one of the largest and most diverse metropolitan areas on earth. From incredible museums to delicious food and rich cultural landmarks, it’s easy to discover local flavor in São Paulo.

After two days of cruising back up the coast, take a moment to discover the beautiful white sand beaches and fashionable streets of Punta del Este, Uruguay. Your voyage concludes back in Buenos Aires, the chic, cosmopolitan capital of Argentina.

AzAmazing Evening - An Evening Carnival at the Solís Theatre

Experience the intoxicating energy, vibrant costumes, and captivating rhythms of a traditional Carnival celebration during an unforgettable evening at Montevideo's historic Solis Theatre. Enjoy a showcase of singing, dancing and acting that celebrates life in the grand tradition of Carnival.

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Buenos Aires

Welcome to elegant, cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, with its European colonial architecture and colorful mix of cultures. Each district has its own style: enjoy Palermo with its mansions and parks; shop in the chic boutiques of Soho and Hollywood; and soak up the Italian flavor of La Boca where tango dancers and artists display their talents for passersby.

Day 2
Montevideo

Montevideo exudes European charm and elegance, with broad boulevards, fountains, stately squares, and irresistible sidewalk cafes. Take in the Art Nouveau pedestrian mall, Art Deco Centenary Stadium, and American Embassy designed by I.M. Pei. Most of the nation’s countryside is farm or ranchland, and the life of the cowboy, or gaucho, is part of the local lore.

Days 3-4
At Sea

Relax and reflect on your journey thus far with a few days of fun at sea. Get a behind-the-scenes look at life onboard with an Insider’s View Tour, attend a destination lecture to learn more about your next port-of-call, or try your luck at our onboard casino.

Want to really unwind? Watch the world go by and sip a complimentary drink poolside, or say “ahh” with a visit to Sanctum Spa.

Days 5-7
Rio De Janeiro

Samba on down to Rio, easy going except for the four days of frenetic, feather-festooned Carnaval. No journey to Rio would be complete without a visit to one of the New Seven Wonders of the World—Christ the Redeemer. At the top of Corcovado Mountain, this 125-foot-tall statue of Jesus Christ spreads its arms over Rio and offers breathtaking panoramic views of Guanabara Bay.

Day 8
Ilhabela

This “beautiful island” lives up to its name, and today belies its once lurid reputation as a hideout of smugglers and pirates. State park trails provide access to a luscious jungle, with numerous waterfalls where you can stop for a swim along the way. And when you work up an appetite there is nothing better than shrimp right off the boat, accompanied by Brazil’s national cocktail, the Caipirinha.

Day 9
Sao Paulo

Whatever your heart desires, you’ll have no trouble finding it in São Paulo—Brazil’s largest and most diverse city. From incredible museums to delicious food, cultural landmarks, and relaxing green space, Azamara can help you discover the local flavor of São Paulo.

Days 10-11
At Sea

This is the perfect time to experience all that your boutique hotel at sea has to offer—or to simply do nothing at all. From decadent specialty dining, to immersive lectures, to tranquil spa treatments, the choice is yours.

Shop for tasteful gifts at our onboard stores, or retreat to the Drawing Room and explore the world with our digital Inspiration Center. Days at sea are spectacular with us.

Day 12
Punta Del Este

Punta del Este's white sand beaches are popular with families and the glitterati alike. Fashionable cafes and shops line the streets, and an evening harbor-front stroll will no doubt include a serenade by street musicians and entertainers. The town projects an artsy vibe, with the Brava Beach open air sculpture park, displaying large works in steel, concrete, wood, iron, and marble.

Day 13
Buenos Aires

Welcome to elegant, cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, with its European colonial architecture and colorful mix of cultures. Each district has its own style: enjoy Palermo with its mansions and parks; shop in the chic boutiques of Soho and Hollywood; and soak up the Italian flavor of La Boca where tango dancers and artists display their talents for passersby.
