24-day Cruise from Miami to Miami onboard Insignia

VOYAGE OF DISCOVERY Exotic adventure is the theme of this cruise as you sail deep into the heart of the Amazon rainforest. Only slightly smaller than the Nile, the Amazon holds the distinction of carrying the most water of any river, an estimated twenty percent of all fresh water that flows into the world’s oceans. The unique environment is home to a staggering diversity of wildlife and is one of the world’s last refuges for jaguars, harpy eagles and pink dolphins. With unknown numbers of species as yet undiscovered, this voyage offers the opportunity to see something no one else has ever seen, with the additional pleasure of several days relaxing on some of the Caribbean’s most enchanting islands.
