South American Cruise Tips
While South America may be known for its warmer weather, the area also has a reputation for unpredictable weather. It’s not uncommon for passengers to experience 90°F at one port and 50°F at another port just a few hours later. As a precaution, pack for a range of conditions, wear your clothes in easily removable layers and, if you’re heading out for a day-trip, take an extra sweater or jacket and an umbrella with you in case of rain.
If you’re prone to sea sickness, you may wish to get prescription medication from your doctor before the cruise. South American seas can get quite rough, and it’s better to be safe than sorry. Although most ships offer complimentary motion sickness medicines, it’s a good idea to stock up on your own just in case. As far as shore excursions go, this is an itinerary where taking the ship’s shore excursions is highly recommended, as many of the locals only speak Spanish. Finally, stick to bottled water and pay attention to how your food is prepared, as foodborne illnesses are not unheard of in the area.
