An opportunity to visit the world's most remote inhabited island either at the start or the end of your South American experience on board Balmoral. After arrival in Santiago, we'll transfer you to an internal flight taking you to a three-night stay in a different world.An extraordinarily beautiful islandEaster IslandThis haunting and unique Polynesian island is located in a south eastern corner of the Pacific Ocean. It is rightly famous for the monumental stone statues known as 'Moai' - 887 of these stark, beautifully carved heads litter the island and they are the key to both its history and cultural past. Many theories abound in relation to the heritage of the statues but we can hopefully discount the ones crediting aliens with their creation. Historians generally agree that they were created as tributes to their ancestors by the early Rapanui people who lived on the island.The landscape of today is somewhat lacking in trees, bearing witness to the massive deforestation suffered through a history of environmental and social disasters over the centuries. A combination of civil wars, epidemics, colonial hardships and natural disasters have taken their toll on the island and its population. Even the giant heads have suffered the ravages of time and were subjected to the indignity of various 'head toppling' regimes during local wars and at the hands of slave traders.

The very fact that it has survived such levels of extreme devastation to its ecosystem and its people - who were literally down to just a few thousand souls in the darkest days of the nineteenth century - is proof of the powers of survival of both nature and its creatures. And the monolithic heads are the symbols of this instinct for survival, having born silent witness to the passing of time.

Experience the vibrancy of the CaribbeanMONTEGO BAY BEACH STAY 2012 / EASTER ISLAND GRAND TOUR 2012The popular resort city of Montego Bay is a vibrant destination making the perfect base from which to sample all that Jamaica has to offer. Visited by Christopher Columbus in 1494, this island is the quintessential Caribbean experience. Many visitors are immediately seduced by the legendary beaches, and sipping a glass of Planter's Punch while contemplating your next swim is an appealing option. Equally, the resort caters for those of a more active disposition. The city itself is a haven of duty free shopping and is steeped in the troubled colonial history of the Caribbean. Indeed, the main square is named after Samuel Sharpe, the martyred national hero and slave leader of the revolt which culminated in the so-called Baptists' War of 1831-1832.If you decide to look beyond the romantic sunsets viewed from the terrace of the city's world-renowned Rick's Café, then touring the sights can be illuminating.The natural baths at St Thomas are a rejuvenating experience. Or you can go back in time with a tour of a working sugar plantation set in the foothills of the Catadupa Mountains, enjoying the lush vegetation, wild flowers and waterfalls of the region - before sampling an exotic fruit drink or a cup of legendary Blue Mountain Coffee.
