PRE - CANYON RANCH

Prepare for the pleasures of your upcoming cruise by luxuriating at the oceanfront Canyon Ranch Hotel & Spa in Miami Beach, a resort with boundless facilities that inspire healthy living and promote wellness.

DAY 1

Upon arrival at the Miami International Airport, you will be met and transferred to the Canyon Ranch Hotel and Spa, which is located on the oceanfront on Miami Beach. The drive takes approximately 20 minutes, during which time you can enjoy the sights of one of America's most vibrant cities.

Check-in time is 3:00 p.m. If you plan to arrive earlier, be sure to pack exercise clothing and swim wear in your carry-on luggage, so you may use the hotel's fitness facilities and enjoy the beach as soon as you arrive.

The remainder of the day is at leisure to take full advantage of the hotel amenities, which offer abundant healthy living opportunities. Canyon Ranch Hotel & Spa is a wonderful oasis where you will spend two nights in complete comfort.

DAY 2

Start the day with a healthy breakfast and the rest of the day is yours to enjoy as you please.

There's no such thing as hurrying in this serene setting. You will have full access to Canyon Ranch's state-of-the-art Wellness Spa, which at 70,000 square feet is the largest in Florida. Here, you might use your $150 spa credit to lose yourself in the Aquavana thermal suite, a collection of European-style healing aquatic environments such as the Finnish sauna and rooftop HydroSpa. Indulge in a Thai massage and restorative touch therapy. Enjoy a facial enhancement that leaves your skin looking more vibrant and youthful. And take advantage of the salon services that include hairstyling, pedicures and manicures, all of which use eco-friendly products.

Of course, the entire resort is yours to enjoy. You might read a good book, savor an organic cocktail or a cup of tea in the inviting conservatory. Chat with a friend as you people-watch in the outdoor Palm Court. Enjoy a light snack and innovative cocktails in the Carillon Lounge. Linger in the relaxing library.

If you're feeling more ambitious, you might play on the pristine beach, join an exhilarating Beach Boot Camp class, work out in a world-class gym with stunning ocean views, or swim in one of the four beautiful pools.

MANAUS ECO PARK

MANAUS ECO PARK

Spend an adventurous evening in a comfortable, yet rustic lodge deep in the Amazon jungle, where you will see monkeys being rehabilitated, hike through the forest, look for caiman at night, and perhaps even fish for piranhas.

Day 1 - December 29, 2014

A local guide will meet you at the gangway for the short transfer to the Marina Tauá floating jetty. Here, you will board a motorized riverboat and cruise for about a half hour along the Rio Negro to the Amazon Ecopark Lodge.

Being in the heart of the jungle, the lodge is rustic yet comfortable. It was created as a scientific and educational property before opening its doors to the public in 1995. Several streams and more than six miles of jungle trails crisscross the terrain, offering easy access to natural savannahs and dense forests of towering trees and wild orchids. The lodge also has a beach and four small ponds. While not luxurious, the bungalows are comfortable and pleasantly decorated, while maintaining a rustic and original atmosphere.

Upon arriving, you will be greeted with a welcome drink and then check in. Shortly afterwards, you will meet your guide in the lobby for a motorized canoe ride to nearby Monkey Island. At the Island, you will see researchers rehabilitating a variety of monkeys that were once held captive. There are spider monkeys, squirrel monkeys, wooly monkeys and Capuchin monkeys-many of which are orphans- and they now roam free in the sanctuary.

You'll have the opportunity to have your picture taken with the monkeys before returning to the lodge to enjoy a buffet lunch and free time.

In the afternoon, you will embark on the day's second outing, a motorized canoe ride through the surrounding "Igarapes," which are small creeks that offer a close-up look at the magnificent jungle scenery. During this two-hour exploration, you may stop to visit a local riverfront home and, if water conditions permit, you might fish for carnivorous piranhas.

Then, it's back to the lodge for more free time before dinner. After dining, you will head deep into the jungle once again by motorized canoe, the main mode of transportation in this area.

Expect it to be completely dark, as there are no ambient lights in the jungle. In time, your guide will shine a strong light on the river's surface until in all likelihood it catches the shining eyes of a caiman. While the caiman remains hypnotized by the bright light, you will slowly approach until the guide is catches it with his bare hands, allowing you to take photographs before the alligator-like creature is released, unharmed, back into the water.

Following this caiman-spotting adventure, you will return to the lodge for a relaxing overnight stay.

Day 2 - December 30, 2014

After breakfast at the lodge, you will board a canoe for another journey into the forest, where you will enjoy a guided hike. While meandering through the forest, you will learn all sorts of fascinating facts about jungle survival and natural remedies used by the local residents.

Once back at the lodge, you will check out and return to Manaus via riverboat and then drive on to the port.
