SOUTH AMERICA

The world is a huge place and time is limited so this menu got left until we could claim to have visited even just a few ports. We plan to add some information throughout 2023. It is a route we would like to do more of.

This is a typical route. It is the one taken by P&O Aurora in 2023. The weather can change drastically across this route, as can the views and experiences. If you want to hear more, join the Aurora chat group where I am sure they will be sharing and where you can ask questions. We will be on a portion of this route.  uCruise Aurora and Arcadia   Just click the box to be taken to the Facebook group. At the same time, Azamara went up the mighty Amazon River, taking in the lush paradise of the rainforest around the largest river (by volume) in the world.

If you can add detail, please contact us. Cartagena, Columbia is the setting of an early turning point in the cruise thriller CRUISE SHIP HEIST. The charming, narrow streets feature quaint colonial buildings where the three new friends walk, one knowing they are probably being watched. They look in the magnificent cathedral and then visit the walled old town brimming with colonial history and risk. The plazas awash with flowers hide the threat. The book is available as a paperback, kindle or audiobook, or free to listen to while port-guides play mute, on www.YouTube.com/@DorisVisits  Click the picture of the book for details.
