FODOR'S SOUTH AMERICA Fodor's / $27.95 This hefty guide covers Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. The highlights vary from country to country. There's Museo Evita in Buenos Aires, a museum dedicated to the life of the Argentine firebrand Eva Peron. There's Brazil's Rio de Janeiro, home to 23 beaches. There's the Amazon, which covers some 4 million square miles. Things learned along the way: Despite the name, Panama hats, those finely made straw hats, are actually made in Ecuador and only became associated with Panama after Teddy Roosevelt wore one when he toured the Panama Canal.

Though cruise lines tout cruising as the biggest bang for your buck, fares still can be daunting for families. Add grandparents to the mix and the numbers can be numbing. However, several cruise companies are extending a helping hand by offering special deals for those who want to tote everyone along on their seagoing vacation except the family pet. Crystal Cruises, for instance, has a "Mediterranean Memories" package suitable for family reunions of 10 or more members, which features one complimentary berth accommodation for every 10 paid berths.

I am writing about the discrimination against single travelers when it comes to cruises. Last month, I desperately wanted to go on a cruise that cost $13,000, which was a bit steep for me. But when the cruise line got through with me, the cost of going solo was $27,000. I didn't go. Why can't cruise lines give us a break? The bottom line is the bottom line. If there's only one of you, you're consuming only half the overpriced drinks, buying only half the overpriced jewelry and taking only half as many overpriced shore excursions.

For a long time, I have been interested in an Alaskan Inside Passage cruise, but am afraid of seasickness. What is the most )) effective method of dealing with this problem?Inside Passage cruises wriggle through the tranquil channels and straits off British Columbia and Alaska. But they may also venture into the less-protected waters of the Pacific for some stretches: just north of Vancouver, between Ketchikan and Sitka, and between Sitka and Glacier Bay. Wherever they go, whatever rocking motion there might be is minimal because of ships' stabilizers, weight (gross registered tonnage is usually about 34,000 and up)

Themed sailings have long been a popular standby of cruising. Such a cruise is tailor-made to your tastes and can ensure that even if you aren't wild about the ship, at least you have something to focus on that floats your boat. Several lines tend to specialize in particular themes. For example, you can count on Norwegian Cruise Line for sports themes, Holland America for music themes and Crystal Cruises for food and wine festivals. The vaunted QE2 even offers a different theme on every trans-Atlantic crossing.

Q: Which cruise lines or ships carry a Catholic priest as chaplain so that passengers can go to Mass on board each Sunday?A: Chaplains are not routinely included on most cruises. But often a priest, minister or rabbi is among the passengers and will hold a service if there is a demand, the lines say. Many companies recruit members of the clergy by paying for their air fare and accommodations.This selection should be of help:* Sun Line Cruises: Mass is celebrated every day on Sun Line Cruises' Stella Solaris during its 11 winter and 26 summer sailings.

With clockwork precision, every major cruise line dispatches vessels to ports in New England and Eastern Canada in fall. These annual pilgrimages enable cruisers to gawk at landscapes aglow in gold, red and amber. And now is the time to plan your autumn outing. Options abound for cruising to the region's seaside hamlets and historic cities, but keep in mind that these itineraries are popular and fill up fast, especially for sailings at the height of leaf-peeping season. A number of lines sail these waters for an extended period -- typically starting in May, when travelers still will get the cultural flavor of the region, albeit without the blazing colors that cruises in September and October bring.

When the swank Wind Song makes its maiden call on Costa Rica this December, passengers will be offered an unusual means of getting into the swing of the country -- careening from tree to tree along a metal cable 100 feet above the rain-forest canopy in a scene more evocative of a Rambo flick than a cruise-ship shore excursion.For further thrills, passengers can gallop across a working ranch with an active volcano for a backdrop or hike up the steep bank of a seaside jungle preserve, hooted on by howler monkeys and toucans.
