Land Program

Day 1 – Arrive Buenos Aires

Upon arrival at the airport, you will be transferred to the hotel. After check-in, you’ll have time to get settled in and relax. In the evening, join your fellow travelers for a welcome dinner. (D)

Note: if you wish to spend more time in Buenos Aires, ask your Personal Vacation Manager about the optional hotel extension – which will add one night to your Buenos Aires hotel stay.

Day 2 – Buenos Aires

Plaza de Mayo

This morning, get acquainted with Buenos Aires during a tour highlighting the city’s major neighborhoods and attractions. Among the points of interest, you will see are the Plaza de Mayo, this main square is surrounded by the Casa Rosada (Presidential Office), the Cabildo (Colonial Town Hall) and the Cathedral. You will drive through the charming streets of San Telmo, the oldest neighborhood (barrio) in Buenos Aries, dotted with old churches, antique shops and colonial buildings. You will also drive along the colorful roads of La Boca famous for its multicolor tin houses, European flavor and many tango performers.


Empanada Cooking Class

This afternoon, you are invited to discover Argentina culture through a hands-on cooking class, learning traditional dishes with fresh, local ingredients. The class begins with the basic ingredients of Argentine food: onion, red pepper, salt, paprika and ground pepper. The chef will then demonstrate cooking tricks, share snippets of Argentine history and encourage you to partake in the cooking experience. After watching the chef demonstrate, each of you will have the opportunity to fold empanadas. At the end, we will settle at the table to enjoy the fruits of our labor! (B, L)

Day 3 – Buenos Aires to Iguazu Falls

Iguazu Falls, Brazil Side

Depart for your flight to Iguazu Falls. Upon arrival, we will cross the border into Brazil to explore the falls from the Brazilian side. 80% of the waterfalls are on the Argentinian side. Therefore, visiting the Argentinian side offers more opportunities to get up close to the waterfalls, while the Brazilian side offers more panoramic views of the entire falls landscape. We will take an elevator down to the base of the waterfalls and stop right above the river level, then go up to the Salto Floreano viewpoint. Afterwards, from a 1,000-yard footbridge, you will be able to admire a panoramic view of majestic Iguazu Falls. Upon conclusion of the tour, we will cross back over the border into Argentina and arrive at the hotel, Loi Suites, in Puerto Iguazu. Just a 10-minute drive from the center of town, the Loi Suites surprises in a lot of ways. With its jungle location, surrounded on all sides by forest and set right on the river’s edge, there is no way that you would think it to be so close to town. As you enter the main atrium, you are immediately struck with a sense of space and of understated elegance. This area looks out to the interconnecting pool area below and out into the tall trees of the indigenous forest. From here it is a walk across log bridges that run through the canopy to each of the room blocks. Enjoy dinner at the hotel. (B, D)

Day 4 – Iguazu Falls

Iguazu Falls, Boat Tour

After breakfast, depart on a full-day tour to the Argentinian side of Iguazu Falls for close-up views of the Iguazu River. The lower and upper walkways allow for comprehensive views of the thundering falls. Walk along the trails that make their way through the 210-square-mile (543-square-km) reserve and enjoy the various aerial and panoramic views of the falls. After lunch, embark on a boat that takes you to the base of Iguazu Falls, allowing you to experience the power from below! Enjoy a final night in the forest at your hotel. (B, L) *Please see our Physical Activity section to review the medical and mobility restrictions involving today’s tour.

Day 5 – Iguazu Falls to Buenos Aires

Tango Show

Enjoy a leisurely morning at the hotel, then transfer to the airport for your flight back to Buenos Aires. Check-in to the hotel where you will have some free time to relax and freshen up before the evening activity–a Tango show! We will enjoy an unforgettable night, surrendering to the magic of this “city that never sleeps” and to the charm of the sanguine music. A typical, early 20th-century house is an ideal stage for such a unique show: 15 artists, a tango orchestra, a folk music group, dancers and a singer. While enjoying the show, you’ll be treated to a traditional Argentine meal. (B, D)

Day 6 – Buenos Aires

Colonia del Sacramento

This morning we will depart early and take a ferry across the river to Uruguay, where we will visit the charming town of Colonia del Sacramento, commonly referred to as Colonia and its nearby wine region. Situated on the northeastern bank of the Río de la Plata, Colonia is renowned for its well-preserved historic quarter, which has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Founded by the Portuguese in 1680, it was a significant outpost for both the Portuguese and the Spanish during the colonial era, which resulted in a unique blend of architectural styles. Its cobblestone streets, colonial architecture and relaxed atmosphere make it a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. We will enjoy a walking tour of the historic neighborhood, then head to a local winery for a tasting and lunch.

Wine tasting

The winery is located on a 120-hectare property, with native fauna and flora throughout. Our visit begins with a tour of the vineyards and olive groves. We will then continue with our expert guide to the area of the high-tech mill for an informative tour and tasting of wine and olive oils, accompanied by regional cheeses, olives and toast. Lunch will then be served in the farmhouse, where a spread of regional barbecue meats, seasonal salads and roasted vegetables will be presented. We will then indulge in a homemade dessert before heading back to Buenos Aires. (B, L)

Day 7 – Buenos Aires

Gaucho Ranch

An estancia (ranch) in the Argentine Pampas (plains)

Depart the city in a comfortable coach for a scenic ride through the Argentine pampas (plains) to an estancia (ranch), for a day of gaucho (cowboy) fun! The wild smell of the countryside will lead us away from the city and invite us to experience the region’s rural traditions. We will spend the day on a local ranch, where the owners will give us a tour of the estate and introduce you to their horses. Built in the 19th century, the property is a colonial-style estancia with a large fireplace and over 200 acres of land. For lunch, we will enjoy a delicious outdoor barbeque as well as other local snacks. The estancia also offers live music and dancing, plus you may see some gaucho skills in action, including horse racing. This is truly an unforgettable way to end your pre-cruise land tour-by simply enjoying life as the locals do! (B, L)

Day 8 – Buenos Aires Embarkation

After breakfast, check out of the hotel and transfer to the port, where you will board the Celebrity Equinox for a 14-night cruise to Antarctica. (B)

Day 9–20 – Cruising onboard the Celebrity Equinox (see below for cruise highlights)


Day 21 – Montevideo Shore Excursion

Enjoy Wine in Montevideo

Plaza Independencia, Montevideo

After breakfast on board, set off with your local guide on the most exclusive Shore Excursion in Montevideo. Begin with an orientation tour of the city. You will see Independence Square, Parliament, L Carreta Monument, Downtown, Pocitos and Parque Battle Park neighborhoods and the city coastline. You will then drive to the district of Cuchilla Pereira called “The Wine Land”. Here you will visit a bodega (wine shop) founded in 1898, where you will be part of an unforgettable experience. You will visit the wine cellar which dates to the 1800s and browse through the old machinery museum.


glass of wine

Glass of wine

Along the way, you will enjoy a performance that recreates the era in which the milonga emerged in the Rio de la Plata. Argentinians, intrigued by the dance, borrowed several characteristics of it, added their own attitude and style and called it the Tango. Dancers and Singers will make you feel like you are being transported back in time and that are part of the Uruguayan history of the late 1800s. To enhance the experience, you will enjoy the best national wines and delicious wines should make for a memorable experience. From here, return your ship with a new-found appreciation for Montevideo and Uruguay. (L)

Day 22 – Buenos Aires Disembarkation

Enjoy breakfast onboard, then disembark the Celebrity Equinox. For those that have air booked by Enrichment Journeys, enjoy a transfer tour of the Colon Theater and lunch included before arriving at the airport for your evening flight home. (L)

Note: if you wish to spend more time in Buenos Aires, ask your Personal Vacation Manager about the optional hotel extension – which will add one night your Buenos Aires hotel stay.

For meals not included in your land programs, all hotels chosen include a restaurant on property where you may relax and enjoy a meal. In addition, your guide is available to make suggestions on nearby dining, shopping or sightseeing.

Port Highlights

Ushuaia, Argentina

Ushuaia, Argentina: No city on the planet has more southerly latitude. As a result, the sun shines for 18 hours during each summer day, providing ample opportunity to view the mix of glaciers, forests and sea, all framed by Mount Martial to the west and Mounts Olivia and Cinco Hermanos to the east.




Cape Horn, Chile

Cape Horn, Chile (Scenic Cruising): Tierra del Fuego, Land of Fire, is the most isolated place in the Americas and Cape Horn is its southernmost point. These craggy cliffs and windswept shores are stark, rugged beauty personified, creating a dramatic setting for the collision between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.



Gerlache Strait

Gerlache Strait: Named for an intrepid 19th-century Belgian explorer, the Gerlache Strait has taken on a life of its own as one of Antarctica’s most spectacular stretches of water and ice. Penguins relax on ice floes and, if you’re lucky, you might spot whales peeking in and out of the deep blue waters.




Paradise Bay, Antarctica

Paradise Bay, Antarctica: Wide embayment behind Lemaire and Bryde Islands, indenting the west coast of Graham Land between Duthiers and Leniz Points. The name was applied by whalers operating in this vicinity and was in use by 1920.




Schollart Channel, Antarctica

Schollart Channel, Antarctica: Cruising in Schollart Channel is an incredible way to see the wonders of the South Pole, breathe in its fresh, wintry air and see dozens of animal species up close and personal. Pass Anvers Island and Brabant Island during your scenic Antarctica cruise through this icy paradise, taking in panoramic snowy landscapes from the top deck of your cruise ship. Or, grab a camera with a zoom lens to capture penguins waddling across ice floes or leopard seals swimming in their natural habitat.




Elephant Island, Antarctica

Elephant Island, Antarctica: Elephant Island is an ice-covered mountainous island off the coast of Antarctica in the outer reaches of the South Shetland Islands, in the Southern Ocean. Its name was given by early explorers sighting elephant seals on its shores.




Port Stanley, Falkland Islands

Port Stanley, Falkland Islands: Brightly colored wriggly-tin roofs contrast strikingly with the grays and browns of the surrounding hills. The town is named after Lord Stanley, Secretary of State for the Colonies 1841 – 1844. Your first point of call should be the newly completed Jetty Center – situated just off the Public Jetty and your visit would not be complete without a visit to the museum in Holdfast.



Puerto Madryn, Argentina

Puerto Madryn, Argentina: This deep-water port was founded in 1865 by Welsh immigrants. Extending out into the Atlantic from Puerto Madryn is the Peninsula Valdés, a wildlife sanctuary where vast numbers of sea elephants, whales and penguins far outnumber the few human visitors who make it out this far.



Montevideo, Uruguay – Exclusive Shore Excursion: Your Enrichment Journey package includes an exclusive shore excursion in Montevideo. For a full description, see the “Land Program Details” section above.

Journey to Antarctica and Iguazu Falls

What to Expect on Your Trip



5 out of 5 – Land program Includes Full-day Guided Tours on Most Days

Most days during the land portion will include full-day tours. The overall pace is rather quick, as there is much to see in these regions, however there is a healthy mix of both visits to historical sites and time to enjoy the landscape and scenery. Most days include two meals, allowing the third meal to be at your leisure. All hotels will have a restaurant on property where you may dine, then have the rest of the evening to relax. If you wish to go out, your guide is available to make suggestions for nearby dining.

During the cruise you will have a mix of relaxing days at sea and exciting days on land to explore the port cities. You may choose from optional shore excursions, which will allow for cultural immersion, exotic meals and numerous activities.

Physical Activity

The land portion of the trip should be considered active and includes a considerable amount of walking. Enrichment Journeys will do everything in our power to ensure comfort through our third-party providers, including air-conditioned buses and comfortable accommodations where applicable. However, some areas cannot be accessed by coach, so our drivers will get you as close to sites as is legally allowed. Sensible, rubber-soled walking shoes are strongly recommended. Historical sites often do not have elevators, escalators, or ramps due to the age of the building/structure. Steps can be steep and uneven. Wheelchair access at many sites is extremely limited. Based on crowds and traffic, order of visits may be changed. A fold-up wheelchair may be able to be stored on the bus but requires prior arrangements. Guests must be able to transfer from their chair to the transportation. Guides/drivers are not allowed to lift or push wheelchairs, so guests requiring physical assistance must travel with a companion who can assist. Motorized wheelchairs and scooters cannot be accommodated on this group program. For the cruise portion of the trip, passengers will board and leave the ship up stairways and gangways and you may have to walk a moderate distance to transfer to train, bus and car stations. Time spent on the road and traveling can be long, so you will need to be prepared for stretches of down time in between destinations.

Please note that guests with the following conditions are not allowed to ride the boats of the Zodiac Navigation Tour and will have to skip that portion of the tour:

  • People with osteoporosis, neck, back conditions or have had neck, back surgery
  • People unable to climb 100 yards of stairs
  • People with heart conditions
  • People with COPD or neurological conditions
  • People unable to handle a nautical emergency on the lower Iguazu River

Additional information for guests with mobility issues:

The Iguazu Falls viewing decks consist of many levels of viewing platforms, only accessible by stairs. These platforms and stairs may get slippery from the mist of the falls. Guests must be able to climb up and down multiple stairs on their own to take in the spectacular views. Unfortunately, guests in wheelchairs will not be able to participate in the tours in Iguazu.

Cultural Focus

South American culture is passionate and diverse. Tropical wilderness blends with modern appeal in the beautiful and contrasting country of Argentina. Immerse yourself in the South American style while surround by staggering mountains, green valleys and glacial landscapes. Then, experience a cruise through the pristine, ice, rock and water of untouched Antarctica. A trip of a lifetime through Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay and Antarctica will be unforgettable and very different than what you might be used to. You will encounter dishes and ingredients typical to the region that you may not have encountered before and you will be introduced to local artistry of the region. Enrichment Journeys encourages an open mind when in unique situations and meeting people abroad. Sometimes the attractions, beaches and cities themselves can be crowded, especially while on the cruise.

Unique Factors

Depending on external factors (especially wind) you may get wet while visiting Iguazu Falls. Having mosquito repellent while at Iguazu is advisable. If you have special needs or physical limitations, you will need to check in with your personal vacation manager before booking the trip. The temperature can vary between day and night, so pack accordingly with items that can be layered. Some guests may wish to have a light sweater or windbreaker with them.

Single: Call for a Quote


Day 1 – Arrive to Mendoza

Your Journey extension begins at the Mendoza airport where you will be transferred to your hotel for check in. Mendoza is at the heart of Argentina’s wine country and is known for its tree-lined streets, shaded plazas, laid-back atmosphere and street cafes serving as much Malbec as coffee. You will enjoy some free time to stroll around the town at your leisure before meeting your fellow travelers for dinner. (D)

Note: flights to Mendoza typically depart from Buenos Aires’ regional airport, therefore a transfer from the international airport to the regional airport may be necessary (and will be included as part of your extension package).

Day 2 – Mendoza

Today we will explore the wine regions of Maipu and Lujan de Cuyo, both internationally renowned for their Malbec wines. The area is a picturesque scene of endless green vineyards at the edge of majestic desert mountain peaks and the contrast of colors is breathtaking. Joined by experienced professionals, we will tour some wineries and walk among the vineyards. Learn about the region’s production and how the locals succeeded in turning a desert into an oasis—canals, irrigation ditches, computerized drip irrigation (a harmonious combination of old techniques inherited from the Huarpe Indians and modern technologies) have all resulted in the production of high-quality crops. Of course, we will also sample the wines for ourselves! Enjoy several wine tastings and a delicious lunch during the tour. After visiting three different types of wineries, we will head back to Mendoza for an evening at your leisure. (B, L)

Day 3 – Mendoza

Today we will head to the picturesque Velle de Uco region to partake in a culinary and wine experience. At a shaded outdoor patio nestled amongst the vineyards, we will start the day with an informative meeting with a local chef to learn about the region’s cuisine, fresh produce and wine varieties. Then, we will partake in a hand-on cooking class. With a glass of wine and a relaxed atmosphere, you will enjoy an interactive experience while learning kitchen secrets from the chef. It’s a great opportunity to take pictures, ask questions and have fun! After the class, you will enjoy a multi-course menu, including some of your own creations, with a better understanding and appreciation for all the ingredients and techniques that go into creating each dish. At the conclusion of the experience, we’ll raise a glass and “Salud!” to an incredible start to our Journey. With a full belly and a tipsy smile, return to your hotel in Mendoza, where you will have the rest afternoon at your leisure. (B, L)

Day 4 – Mendoza to Buenos Aires

After breakfast and hotel check-out, a transfer will take you to the airport for your flight back to Buenos Aires. Upon arrival, a transfer will be waiting to take you to your centrally-located hotel, where you will join the rest of the group for the start of the Enrichment Journey program. (B)

Before You Go

Money Matters

How you handle your currency and financials while on the trip is up to you. Some people prefer to exchange all their money in advance, while others will rely solely on credit cards. Consider calling your bank ahead of time to make them aware of your international travel, especially when using cards or withdrawing money.

ATM Machines

These are often readily available, especially in major cities. Some will charge fees on top of what your hometown bank may charge for using ATMs abroad. Look for well-marked machines that have the Visa or MasterCard symbols.

Foreign Banks

Currency can be exchanged at most banks, if needed. Ask a local host or tour manager if there is a nearby bank that is open.

Credit Cards

During your trip, you’ll find that most major credit cards are accepted. Call your specific card issuer ahead of time to find out its limitations and benefits overseas.


Do be aware that some additional charges for mini-bars, laundry and room service will not be included in the tour package. Plan accordingly for these extra charges.

Packing Guidelines

Pack as simply as possible for easy transfers and customs screenings. Check with your domestic and international carriers regarding baggage guidelines, allowances and check for additional fees. All bags will be screened before boarding flights and the cruise ship.

What to pack

Basics and layers are key to a comfortable Journey. Be sure to check the weather in the destinations you will visit and pack accordingly. There are always unpredictable variables as well, so make sure you have one sturdy jacket and an outfit for a formal occasion too, just in case.

Here are a few key items to take on your trip:

  • Raincoat/poncho
  • Hooded jacket/fleece pullover
  • Pants with pockets
  • Skirt with pockets
  • Hat with visor & sunscreen/bug spray
  • Warm socks
  • Sturdy sandals
  • Practical shoes for walking/easy hiking
  • Extra pair of prescription sunglasses and/or glasses (if needed)
  • Camera(s)

Have back-ups for everything to avoid disappointment. Charge batteries in advance and bring extra film or digital memory cards. If bringing a high-end camera, consider investing in insurance to protect your asset.

Luggage Screening Process

To pass through screening, have liquids either in small containers and bagged, or in checked luggage. All valuables necessary for the trip should be on your person at all times, if possible. This includes medications and documentation. We recommend one main bag and a carry-on, per airline guidelines for weight and size.


Have all your bags labeled with your name and address clearly marked. Add something to you luggage that is recognizable in the event your bags are misplaced. You may also consider marking your bags with “Enrichment Journeys” for efficiency.

Carry-on items

In many countries, including the US, large liquid containers are not allowed in carry-ons. On the way back into The States, food or agriculture items are prohibited. If you have questions about a certain item, visit for a list of items that cannot be packed.

Airport transfers

Airport transfers are included as part of your Enrichment Journey. Local representatives will advise you of the departure time from your hotel the night before departure. Generally speaking, arrangements have been made to have you at the airport approximately three hours in advance of departure, though this may vary depending on local circumstances. At the end of the cruise, an airport transfer will also be provided. Please advise your Personal Vacation Manager if you do not require transfer arrangements at the time of booking your Journey.

Cell phones

Some cell phones will work overseas, but incur additional charges for the use. Choose whether you would like to add an international plan by calling your carrier, or consider purchasing a pay-as-you-go phone overseas. However, in some destinations, many smartphones and tablets can pick up wireless Internet for free.

Protecting the Value of Your Travel Investment

Enrichment Journeys offers a comprehensive travel insurance package you can purchase alongside your trip. It eases the mind and lets you cancel your trip for a covered reason up until the departure date with a full refund of the Journey.

The insurance covers a wide variety of incidents, including travel delay, emergency medical services and even baggage delay. You will also receive a pre-existing medical conditions waiver if travel insurance is purchased within 14 days of your initial deposit. For a full list of coverage provided, visit the FAQ section of the website.

Medical Issues and Handicaps

As with any extensive trip abroad, our excursions with Enrichment Journeys will require some physical capabilities, including transfers from cruise ships, walking on cobblestone streets and navigating through some busy cities with guides. Although we encourage all types of travelers to join us, we do ask you are aware of your own physical limitations. Unfortunately, we cannot provide individual care to those who may have walkers, wheelchairs or other aids. Enrichment Journeys also cannot accommodate pregnant women past their six month gestation period. Please speak with one of our Personal Vacation Managers to see if certain itineraries are suitable for you and your needs. We are happy to suggest other viable options for you that are more accessible.

Per the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act, travelers have the right to be reasonably accommodated in terms of tours in public situations. However, the laws do not apply for trips and outside the United States. So you must let Enrichment Journeys know ahead of time of any physical limitations, including information added to our questionnaire that needs to be filled out by all passengers. Failure to inform Enrichment Journeys of these limitations could result in refusal to participate, whether it be at the airport through the airline, on board the ship or at the accommodations booked.

If you have any sort of prescription medication, this should be a number one priority in packing. Bring extra, just in case. A small medical kit is also advisable for quick access to remedy minor aches and pains.

Briefing sessions

A local host or tour manager will be happy to guide you through the trip and answer all of your questions. Upon arrival to your destination, an Enrichment Journeys representative will meet with the group and go over items such as the daily schedule, weather and local customs.


All hotels booked by Enrichment Journeys are held to a high standard of comfort and quality, in accordance to international accommodation standards and rating systems. However, each accommodation varies so you may experience various types of properties throughout your excursions.

Regional Information

Travel Documentation

Have your passport and visas ready and available at all checkpoints. Scan and copy these documents to print out. It is recommended that you e-mail a copy to yourself and someone back home in the event these documents are misplaced. Also, it may be worth bringing an international ID or license.

Passport and Visa

To travel internationally, you must have a passport in good condition and it must be valid for at least 6 months after the last day of your trip. Visa requirements change frequently and for various reasons. As a result, our Personal Vacation Managers are not always able to provide visa information and you should not rely on the information provided below to be the most current and accurate. The best way to obtain up-to-date information regarding visa requirements is to visit the official US government website for Americans traveling abroad, Travel.State.Gov (Canadian citizens should visit, for all other countries please visit your government website or local embassy), which details specific information on the countries you would like to visit, including visa requirements.

You may also use a third-party visa service. These services require an additional service fee but make the process of applying for a visa much simpler.

Note: as of March 2024, citizens of Canada and the United States are required to have an eVisa for entry into Brazil. More information can be found at Enrichment Journeys strongly encourages you to check your government website a few months prior to departure (and then again right before departure) to verify this information, as well as for all countries on your itinerary.


Vaccinations are recommended to protect one’s health from preventable diseases abroad. It is always good to have routine vaccinations up to date when traveling for ailments such as chickenpox, measles and the flu shot. Use your own discretion when deciding on what vaccinations to have based on your preferences and personal medical history. During your Enrichment Journeys tour, the utmost care will be taken with prepared food, atmosphere and other elements, so the likelihood of contracting diseases is scarce.

For a list of recommended vaccinations based on destination, visit or feel free to contact the Center for Disease Control and Prevention directly at 1-800-232-4636.

Electric Current

You will need an adaptor for some parts of your trip. To see what the plugs will look like at your destination, visit and click on each country from the right menu.

You may also need to use a converter. Most countries outside of North and Central America use 220-240 V, whereas the U.S. and Canada use 110 V. However, most chargers these days have a box which will act as a converter so that it can be used in all countries around the world. If your charger box says “Input: 100-240V, 50/60 Hz” then you do NOT need to use a converter (but you may still need an adaptor so that the plugs fit in the socket).

Some hotels may have two and three pronged outlets to use for various appliances. Ship cabins also have outlets for you to use with their converter. However, we recommend having at least one or two adaptors with you, as we cannot guarantee that all hotels will be able to accommodate this.

Local Currency

Argentina uses the Argentine Peso ($), currency code ARS

Uruguay uses the Uruguayan Peso ($ or $U), currency code UYU

Brazil uses the Brazilian Real (R$), currency code BRL

Please visit for the current exchange rate.

How you handle your currency and financials while on the trip is up to you. Some people prefer to exchange all their money in advance, while others will rely solely on credit cards. We suggest having at least some local currency with you during the trip, at least enough to take a taxi if needed. Consider calling your bank ahead of time to make them aware of your international travel, especially when using cards or withdrawing money.

Tipping Guidelines

Tipping is always appreciated but not always required. Expect several instances throughout the hospitality industry that allow for tipping. Have small bills ready for hotel staff, boat crew, restaurant servers, drivers, guides and baggage handlers. If you have a meal outside the itinerary or hire a resident driver, a few dollars in the local currency is customary.

Gratuities are included for group meals, at hotel and at airports. The host, guide, or tour manager can be tipped roughly $8.00-$12.00 USD per person, per day. Drivers can be tipped $5 USD per person, per day. To view the gratuities policy for Celebrity Cruises, please visit

For more information about when and how much to tip in each country, feel free to speak with your tour guide at the start of your Journey. A good reference for international tipping is
