Join other single and solo travelers as we explore Cuzco and Machu Picchu, the “Lost City of the Incas,” and then board the Star Princess for a 12-night cruise around Cape Horn. Ports of call include Valparaiso, Punta Arenas, Puerto Montt, Ushuaia, Port Stanley, Montevideo, and Buenos Aires. We’ll sail around Cape Horn – the southern most point of the Americas, traverse the Straits of Magellan, view awe-inspiring glaciers, laugh at penguins - up close and personal, and marvel at the scenery of Patagonia. Prior to this fascinating cruise we’ll explore Machu Picchu - arguably the most famous site of the ancient Incan Empire, Cuzco and the Sacred Valley. This extraordinary journey is for solo travelers – including single, attached with a “travel phobic” spouse or partner, or friends who want to explore together.
