There is no better way to get to the greatest party on earth than with our 12-night voyage to Carnival in Rio. Once there, experience the jubilation at the annual Samba Parade – the climax of Carnival featuring a non-stop spectacle of joyous song, energetic dance and outrageous floats. More than 100 samba schools from all over Rio compete to perform in the Parade and only the 12 best make it.

Would you like to feel part of the parade? Our luxurious box seating will get you close to the extravaganza. Or for a tropical night you’ll always remember, join the animated atmosphere in the grandstands for great views and an unforgettable experience.


12-Night Rio Carnival & Buenos Aires Voyage

Before Carnival in Rio, take in the European architecture and colonial charm of Montevideo, Uruguay. Then two full days in Buenos Aires will allow you to feast on the area’s culinary offerings of delectable beef and Malbec wines. After exploring the city’s historic monuments and neighborhoods, take in a tango show. Punta del Este is next, where pampering at a luxurious resort awaits. After the extravaganza of Carnival, relax on the upscale beaches of Buzios.
