Best Small Ship South America Cruises
South America offers some of the best small ship cruise opportunities in the world. From the sandy beaches and animal-filled islands of the Galapagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador, to a far-flung Amazon River cruise, to meandering fjords and glaciers around Patagonia, and to jumping off the continent and cruising to Antarctica, this massive continent offers a wide range of world-class small ship cruises and yacht trips.
By booking with Knowmad not only are you guaranteed superior service, but we guarantee a same or better cruise than if you book directly with the ship or another company. If after booking you find the same cruise at a better price, we will refund you the difference.
These small ship cruises can be booked as stand-alone stays or as part of a more in-depth South America travel experience. Learn more about the custom travel planning process here.
Upon confirming your South America small ship cruise with Knowmad, you will be sent a detailed Trip Information Packet particular to your trip that answers most pre-departure questions and includes a pack list, pre-departure check list, and more. You will also have direct access at all times to your Trip Specialist. Prior to departure, along with your re-confirmed itinerary you receive your Buen Viaje, or Safe Travels document that includes maps with hotels indicated, 24-hour in-country emergency phone numbers, and other valuable assistance tools.
