Travel by sea

Since flying became so fast, cheap and popular, no regular passenger service is left between Brazil and the rest of the world although some cargo lines do offer a limited service.

Rio, however, is one of the prime ports of call for ships cruising the world and especially at Carnival time and during the northern hemisphere’s winter months. The QE2 is a fairly regular visitor to Rio de Janeiro as are many of the other famous liners, some of which pass the entire northern hemisphere’s winter season in Brazilian waters.

Any good travel agent should be able to find out which ships are scheduled to call in Brazil in the coming year and these will include the ships that come down from the US and Europe to cruise in Brazilian waters. Popular ports of call in Brazil beside Rio de Janeiro include Manaus, Fortaleza, Recife, Salvador and Vitória.

Some of the ships scheduled to cruise in Brazilian waters in 2004 include: Caronia (Cunard), Clipper Adventurer (Swan Hellenic); Crystal Harmony (Crystal), Marco Polo (Orient Lines), Mercury (Celebrity), Rhapsody (Mediterranean Shipping), Ryndam

 

 (Holland America), Sea bourn Pride (Sea bourn), and Switzerland (Nobel Caledonia)
