Pullmantur Cruises has confirmed its 2013/2014 winter program, with three ships in South America and two ships in the Caribbean.

The Spanish brand, for the first time, will embark passengers in Argentina, with the Zenith sailing five- and nine-night voyages from Buenos Aires.

In addition, the Empress will still call in Argentina, sailing a variety of varying-length cruises from Recife, Santos and Itajai

The Sovereign of the Seas will operate from Rio for the majority of the season, also adding cruises from Recife and short voyages from Santos.

The big news will come in the Caribbean, however, as the Monarch of the Seas - being transferred to Pullmantur this week - will stay on her week-long program in the South, but the Horizon, under the CDF banner, will operate week-long trips from La Romana, from December to April, calling in St. Lucia, Barbados, Martinique, St. Kitts and Tortola.

In 2014 the Zenith will join the Horizon at the French brand CDF.
