Silversea Cruise Line has announced the new 69-day Grand Voyage 2018 of South America. Guests will circumnavigate the continent beginning and ending in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Along the way, the ship will visit 34 ports in Mexico, Honduras, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Barbados, and more. 

Set to sail January 3, 2018, the journey is designed for travelers who want an in-depth experience on a luxury ship. Guests will have the chance to engage in enrichment programs with destination experts, academics, journalists, diplomats and other specialists. Local entertainment, guest chefs, cooking demonstrations, wine tastings, and regional specialties -- many featured poolside at the new Chef's Table interactive experience -- will provide further immersion in each destination.

Other highlights include a crossing of the Panama Canal, cruising Chile's majestic fjords, a three-day stopover in Rio de Janeiro in time for Carnival, plus overnight calls in Valparaiso, Punta Arenas, Buenos Aires, and Manaus, nestled in the heart of the Amazon.
