On this 15-night cruise you'll set sail round-trip from the contemporary urban capital of Argentina, Buenos Aires. The highlight of our cruise will be three days in exciting Rio de Janeiro to celebrate the annual Rio Carnival!

Brazil Rio gay cruise

 

Pack your dancing shoes for this unforgettable 15-night cruise along the shores of South America. Begin with a day in cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, 'The Paris of South America', followed by an overnight stay in Montevideo, Uruguay, where you’ll be swept up in its undeniable European charm and elegance. Explore the historical monuments of this captivating capital city before setting sail for two days of cruising along the Brazilian coast to São Paulo.

 

Gay Brazil cruise

 

Spend the day exploring Brazil’s largest metropolis, São Paulo, and take in breathtaking views atop Banespa—a towering skyscraper in the heart of the city, before venturing to the rainforests of IIhabela for a late stay, colonial Paraty, and the designer shops and beaches of Buzios.

 

South America gay cruise

 

On to Paraty, where you’ll feel as though you’ve traveled 300 years back in time to a Brazilian gold rush town. Make your way to City Center and stroll the cobblestone streets that are off-limits to all vehicles.

 

Rio Carnival Gay Cruise

 

Next, it’s the event you’ve been waiting for. Settle in for two energetic nights celebrating a Rio de Janeiro tradition that goes back to the 1700s. We visit during the peak of Carnival festivities—including Fat Tuesday—and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more exhilarating and memorable festival anywhere on earth.

Two more days at sea follow to soak in the spectacle you’ve just been a part of, then it’s time to explore the artistic energy and white sand beaches of Punta del Este. Your voyage then concludes with a relaxing return trip to Buenos Aires.

Rio Carnival Gay Cruise map

 

Buenos Aires, Argentina gay cruise

Days 1 & 16 - Buenos Aires, Argentina
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.

 

South America gay cruise - Montevideo, Uruguay

Days 2 & 3 - Montevideo, Uruguay
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.

 

South America gay cruise holidays

Days 4 & 5 - Day 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 or attend a destination lecture to learn more about your next port-of-call.
Want to really unwind? Watch the world go by and sip a complimentary drink poolside, or say “ahh” with a visit to Sanctum Spa.

 

South America gay cruise - Sao Paulo, Brazil

Day 6 - Sao Paulo (Santos), Brazil
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.

 

Ilhabela, Brazil gay cruise

Day 7 - Ilhabela, Brazil
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.

 

South America gay cruise - Paraty, Brazil

Day 8 - Paraty, Brazil
Paraty's Portuguese colonial architecture remains undisturbed, and nothing spoils the mood, not even traffic, as no cars are allowed in the old town center. Follow the gold trail into the hinterlands in a 4WD, or tour a sugar estate and Cachaça distillery, where they brew up the strong sugar cane liquor that is the key ingredient in the national cocktail, the Caipirinha.

 

Buzios, Brazil gay cruise

Day 9 - Buzios, Brazil
Originally settled by European pirates and slave traders, this picturesque fishing village is now decidedly chic. Surrounded by hills draped in luxuriant vegetation, this paradise found is a high-end resort with an international flair. More than twenty beaches beckon sun-worshipers and water sport enthusiasts, and the sophisticated boutiques of Rua das Pedras will delight shoppers.

 

South America gay cruise - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Days 10, 11 & 12 - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
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.

 

Gay South America cruise

Days 13 & 14 - Day 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.

 

South America gay cruise - Punta del Este, Uruguay

Day 15 - Punta del Este, Uruguay
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.
