24-hour In-Room Dining
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Samba on down to Rio, famous for its dramatic landscape and beach culture, easy going except for the four days of frenetic, feather-festooned Carnival. From the summits of Sugarloaf to Corcovado in the national park, there are many opportunities to take in the breathtaking natural beauty of the city. Cruises to Rio de Janeiro are not complete without a cable car ride or walking tour for 360-degree views of Guanabara Bay, the city of Niteroi, and so much more. Check out the activity at one or two of the 23 beaches, including the Copacabana and Ipanema, crowded with beautiful sunbathers and swimmers, and populated by surfers, bikers. Pull up a chair at a Churrascaria Palace, and dine on the delicious traditional regional barbecue of your choice, washed down with a Caipirinha, the national cocktail. Head to the Museu Historico Nacional to explore the fascinating historic relics and some of Brazil’s treasures, like the throne of Dom Pedro II, imperial coaches, oil paintings, and a full-size replica of a colonial pharmacy.
