Day 2 Buenos Aires, Argentina

Arrive in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  If only one word could be used to describe this vibrant and richly cosmopolitan city, it would be "mosaic." Stroll along these broad thoroughfares, like the Plaza de Mayo, where famed first lady Evita Perón led fervent crowds to petition for her husband’s release from prison, or visit Pirámide de Mayo, the oldest of the city’s many national monuments. Embark on the Celebrity Eclipse.

Day 6 Ushuaia, Argentina

No city on the planet has a more southerly latitude. As a result, the sun shines for 18 hours during each summer day, providing ample opportunity to view the mix of glaciers, forests and sea, all framed by Mount Martial to the west and Mounts Olivia and Cinco Hermanos to the east.

Day 7 Cape Horn, Chile (Scenic Cruising)

Tierra del Fuego, Land of Fire, is the most isolated place in the Americas, and Cape Horn is its southernmost point. These craggy cliffs and windswept shores are stark, rugged beauty personified, creating a dramatic setting for the collision between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

Day 8 Schollart Channel, Antarctica (Scenic Cruising)

You are certain to leave with amazing memories, and pictures, as you cruise through Schollart Channel located near Antarctica. Take in the  mesmerizing sights of massive ice flows, humpback whales, waddling penguins, leopard seals and more in their natural, and somewhat extreme, element.

Day 9 Paradise Bay, Antarctica (Scenic Cruising)

This name aptly reflects the stunning beauty you'll find here, just as the clear waters beautifully reflect the spectacular mountains, such as Rojas Peak, Bryde Peak, and the Petzvol Glacier. Within these waters we may see Minke whales feeding and Gentoo penguins curiously observing us from the rocky shores.

Day 10 Gerlache Strait, Antarctica (Scenic Cruising)

A number of geographical anomalies around this channel make these waters among the most plankton-rich in the world. You’re likely to see a profusion of whales feeding in the rich ecosystem, which is a sight you’ll not soon forget.

Day 11 Elephant Island, Antarctica (Scenic Cruising)

This tiny island in the Weddell Sea plays a role in one of seafaring history's most legendary exploits. When the brave crew of the Endurance, led by intrepid explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton, was trapped in the ice during a 1914 polar expedition, they took refuge on this island until help arrived.

Day 12 At Sea

Enjoy a day at sea exploring all the Celebrity Eclipse has to offer!

Day 13 Port Stanley, Falkland Islands

Commune with the roughly 2,000 intrepid souls who call this remote former whaling outpost home. As you hike through the rocky, windswept landscape you may observe a few of the island’s flightless residents—including Magellan penguins burrowing underground, and rockhoppers carefully observing you from outcroppings.

Day 14 At Sea

Enjoy a day at sea exploring all the Celebrity Eclipse has to offer!

Day 15 Puerto Madryn, Argentina

This deep water port was founded in 1865 by Welsh immigrants. Extending out into the Atlantic from Puerto Madryn is the Península Valdés, a wildlife sanctuary where vast numbers of sea elephants, whales and penguins far outnumber the few human visitors who make it out this far.

Day 16 At Sea

Enjoy a day at sea exploring all the Celebrity Eclipse has to offer!

Day 17 Montevideo, Uruguay

Montevideo is a thoroughly modern city with a rich artistic tradition, the reach of the rural estancias is all around you. If ever there were a time you were inclined to indulge, delicious steaks are the specialty of the house in virtually every restaurant.

Day 18 Disembark & Return from Buenos Aires

Disembark and return from Buenos Aires.
