Our Amazon River adventure on the Seven Seas Mariner was the first leg of a 62-day circumnavigation of South America. Our cruise would sail south from Fort Lauderdale, stopping at the luscious islands of St. Barts, Dominica, and Barbados in the Caribbean. The Seven Seas Mariner would then turn west and sail 900 miles up the Amazon River to Manaus, Brazil. Before entering the Amazon from the Atlantic Ocean, the Seven Seas Mariner had a call at infamous Devil's Island. Let's take a look at the Seven Seas Mariner and our fascinating ports of call.
We arrived in Fort Lauderdale just before lunch. Ronnie and I had sailed on the Seven Seas Mariner during her maiden year of 2001, and we were glad to see that the ship looked as good as ever. While enjoying our al fresco lunch, we were entertained by the numerous cargo and pleasure ships passing by.
The Seven Seas Mariner is a beautiful cruise ship, and below are links to my numerous articles and photo galleries describing the ship.
