Featured Brazil Cruise Ports

Rio de Janeiro

The city most commonly referred to as simply “Rio” has been a global destination for sun, fun, and exuberant Brazilian culture for years. Take an exhilarating ride on a cable car up to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain, a monolithic granite peak with incredible views that cover the bay and bustling city below. See one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue atop Corcovado and ride up in the antique train for the best and most scenic experience. Relax with a stroll along the promenade at Ipanema to take in the never-ending activity on one of the world’s most famous beaches.


If you’re looking for the ultimate Brazilian beach experience away from the buzz of the big cities, then the archipelago of Ilhabela may be the perfect fit. On the main island, visit the remote eastern beach of Castelhanos, only accessible by boat or trail. Head inland to discover the wild and wonderful rainforests areas of Ilhabela State Park, and hike the short trails to reach the beautiful Gato and Água Branca waterfalls. Take a break from nature with a short tour of the famous Nossa Senhora d’Ajuda church, painted in colorful blue and white and an attraction to visitors for over 200 years.

Salvador de Bahia

Salvador de Bahia is the capital of Bahia, one of Brazil’s northern states, famous for its African influences, colonial architecture, and being Portugal’s first capital in the Americas. Take a walking tour through the pastel-colored buildings and streets of Pelourinho, a UNESCO World Heritage Site bursting with life, world-class dining, and fantastic boutique shopping. Visit the Farol de Barra fort and lighthouse for great views of the sea and 19th-century fortifications now protected as a national monument to Brazilian heritage and history.
