NORTH & SOUTH AMERICAS  •  MARCH 15th – 30th, 2020


Cruise the Pacific Rim of South and Central America on Scientific American’s 175th Anniversary voyage. Savor 20+ hours of exclusive onboard classes while we’re at sea. While we’re in port, take advantage of archaeology, fitness, food, history, and outdoor opportunities.

Survey the big history of the region. Get a cosmic perspective on the search for life in the universe. Enrich your knowledge of regional pre-Columbian peoples. And then head ashore and deepen your appreciation of the cultures and beauty of the area.

You can stroll Santiago, hike Costa Rica’s cloud forests with a friend, surf and swim legendary beaches in fitness mode. Peruvian fusion flavors, Mexican seafood and sweets, Chile’s vineyards and Mexico’s agave fields can play a part in your food adventures. Lima’s museums give a glimpse of Peru’s pre-Columbian empires. Architecture, the arts, and water sports await in Mexico.

Join us! Hail the spirit of inquiry, the discipline of scientific theory, and the value of fact on Scientific American’s 175th birthday cruise. Get in on the action and book now.

P.S. Plan to join us in Los Angeles as the science fun continues with a look at some of L.A.’s gems — Mount Wilson, La Brea Tar Pits, SpaceX, and more!
