Brazil Cruise Highlights


On a cruise to Brazil, you’ll visit legendary beaches like Copacabana and Ipanema, so famous that they’ve inspired songs. Both are a constant buzz of soccer, beach tennis, volleyball, and beautiful people. You can walk along the white sand beach of horseshoe-shaped Ferradura beach in glamorous Buzios, and lounge on urban Gonzaga Beach, near São Paulo. It’s here that city dwellers come to relax and play against a backdrop of ultra-modern skyscrapers and forested mountains.

Beautiful Views

Mountainous Brazil is all about jaw-dropping views. Two of the most famous are Corcovado and Sugar Loaf in Rio de Janeiro; head up either of these dramatic, conical peaks for vistas of the city and its necklace of golden beaches below. You can also find picture-perfect views of Santos and its coastline of golden beaches and verdant hills from the top of Monte Serrat, accessed via a steep funicular railway. 

Cultural Experiences

Brazil has one of the most exciting cultures on earth, whether you’re captivated by sultry samba, the dazzling drama of Carnival, or acrobatic capoeira shows. There’s music and dancing everywhere, as well as a rich indigenous culture. Sampling Brazilian cuisine is all part of the experience, from the tasty black bean and pork feijoada to bolinho de bacalhao, deep-fried balls of salt cod; and caipirinha, a tangy mix of lime, sugar, and cachaça sugar cane spirit.
