Cruise Description

14 Night Cruise sailing from Bridgetown roundtrip aboard Braemar.

Meet Braemar in Barbados and cruise to Brazil for an endlessly rewarding Amazon River adventure. Explore lush rainforest; see incredible natural phenomena; sample traditional Amazonian culture; and enjoy some soothing Caribbean sunshine on one incredible 14-night holiday.

Sailing to Santarem first, experience the hustle and bustle of the busy Mercado Market; admire the fantastic exhibits at the Museu de Santarem; or even sunbathe on the beautiful beaches of the Alter do Chao district – considered the ‘Caribbean of the Amazon’. Don’t miss the remarkable ‘Meeting of the Waters’, where the Tapajós and Amazon rivers flow side-by-side without mixing – a sight you have to see to believe. In Parintins you can sample the carnival atmosphere of Brazil’s second biggest festival, the Boi Bumba. The festival actually takes place in June, but you can enjoy a very special private performance of the Boi Bumba show, complete with traditional dance, toe-tapping music and vibrant costumes, at the Bumbodromo – a simply unmissable experience.

From marvellous Manaus you can delve into the depths of the Amazon Rainforest at dusk on an incredible riverboat tour. Few places in the world can match the extensive fauna and flora found hidden within this magnificent eco-wonderland; and as you venture silently into the flooded forest you might be lucky enough to see elusive caiman. Stopping overnight in Manaus also allows you time to explore the modern city centre, where a range of fantastic shops and restaurants serving delicious local cuisine await. After almost of a week of Amazonian adventure you will then head back to the Caribbean, stopping in Scarborough, Tobago – home of the 18th century Fort King George – before returning to beautiful Bridgetown.

Highlights of this cruise:

Bridgetown, Barbados
Barbados has a balmy, tropical climate, making this very British Caribbean island a favourite with well-heeled tourists. Admire the impressive stalactites and stalagmites in Harrison’s Cave; sail the gorgeous azure waters in search of sea turtles; or simply relax on one of the many sandy beaches, soaking up the laid-back atmosphere.

Santarém (Santarem)
The centre of Santarém is home to the Mercado Modelo – city market – filled with stores, boutiques and other shops. Don’t miss the Museu de Santarém, which has fantastic displays of local historical art, and the ‘wedding of the waters’ – the meeting of the Amazon and Tapajós rivers.

Experience the little Indian village of Parintins.

Manaus, ‘Paris of the Jungle’, is the capital of Brazil’s state of Amazonas.
