The Cruise – Admire unparalleled natural beauty and stunning icy landscapes

Begin this once-in-a-lifetime journey boarding the luxurious Celebrity Eclipse Cruise Ship, your home for the next 15 days. Setting off from Buenos Aires, this cruise will take you to some of the most remote locations in the freezing waters of the Atlantic, spotting wildlife, unspoilt landscapes and icebergs.

Discover Ushuaia, where sun shines for over 18 hours during summer. See Cape Horn, a rocky headland surrounded by wild seas, where the Pacific and Atlantic oceans meet. Marvel at Paradise Bay, home to spectacular mountains as well as incredible wildlife and Puerto Madryn, a wildlife sanctuary where sea elephants, whales and penguins outnumber the few human visitors. Then visit Elephant Island, where Sir Ernest Shackleton and his crew found themselves after losing their ship, the Endurance, in the Weddell Sea in 1914, and spend a day strolling around Montevideo, the lively and artsy capital of Uruguay.

Admire the tranquil landscapes from the comfort of the Celebrity Eclipse Cruise Ship, the hottest spot at sea. Enjoy all meals and entertainment aboard this luxurious ship, boasting delicious restaurants, exciting entertainment venues, swimming pools and spas.

The Tour – From Buenos Aires to the glaciers of Patagonia

Disembark the Celebrity Eclipse Cruise ship and hop on a flight to Iguazu to see the breathtakingly beautiful Iguazu Falls, deemed by UNESCO to be "one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world". Behold the thundering waters of the Devil’s Throat and explore the treasures of this stunning national park – with a remarkable variety of flora and fauna.

After being fully immersed in nature, enjoy a change of pace as you explore the sights and culture of the Argentine city of Buenos Aires – nicknamed the ‘Paris of South America’ for its European flavour evident in the wide boulevards, elegant architecture, palaces and parks. Take a tour of the city’s highlights, including the Plaza de Mayo, Metropolitan Cathedral, the colourful La Boca neighbourhood, and the tomb of First Lady Evita Peron, an Argentine icon - then let your passionate side loose with a traditional tango lesson taught by professional dancers.

A three-hour flight from Buenos Aires will take you all the way to the city of El Calafate, on the shores of Lake Argentino. This city will be your starting point for the exploration of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Los Glaciares National Park, home to world-famous Perito Moreno Glacier. Known as the centrepiece of Los Glaciares National Park - Perito Moreno is the largest ice cap outside Antarctica and Greenland, measuring an impressive 30km in length, 5km in width and 60m in height. Walk along the steel catwalks (almost 4000m total) and get as close as you can possibly get to see, hear and photograph the glacier.
