Destination Antarctica: A Rare Combination for Oceania Cruises Aficionados

Spectacular Savings on a Spectacular Voyage

PRINCETON, New Jersey (June 3, 2010) – Crown Cruise Collection highly recommends this sailing for Oceania Cruises aficionados and is offering spectacular savings along with complimentary travel insurance and $250 per cabin shipboard credit. With air included from the major gateways, a category B2 balcony stateroom is $8099, which includes all port charges and taxes. Regular price would be $40,396, so it is well over 75% savings for a cruise that is inclusive of all dining, including specialty restaurants, and soft drinks. Canyon Ranch Spa services are available onboard at additional costs. Brazilian visa is required.

This 22-day cruise departs Rio de Janeiro on January 14, 2011, and touches on Antarctica in addition to a collection of mesmerizing cities and unpopulated lands where nature reigns in all its glory. Bright lights and big cities capture the imagination initially, as you venture into enterprising São Paulo and bountifully beautiful Buenos Aires, where you might tour the pink Presidential Palace or the colorful La Boca neighborhood. Then Insignia eases south into the Falkland Islands, a remote British territory that is a sanctuary for endangered wildlife.

The landscape becomes even more stunning as you cruise past the unspoiled South Shetland Islands and into starkly majestic Antarctica, a rare opportunity to gaze upon ancient glaciers and perhaps see Gentoo penguins. Rounding the tip of South America, the equally gorgeous Chilean Fjords take center stage for two awe-inspiring days. The beauty inland is easily accessible from destinations such as Puerto Montt in Chile's southern Lake District.
All of this and more can be found on Oceania Cruises  Insignia 22-day South America voyage, departing from Rio de Janeiro to Valparaiso onboard the ship Insignia.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil | Santos (Sao Paulo), Brazil | Montevideo, Uruguay | Buenos Aires, Argentina | Punta del Este, Uruguay | Port Stanley, Falkland Islands | Ushuaia, Argentina | Punta Arenas, Chile | Puerto Chacabuco, Chile | Puerto Montt, Chile | Valparaiso (Santiago), Chile
