Crystal's Carnival In Rio

With two Brazil itineraries during Carnival 2012, ultra-luxury Crystal Cruises has announced four new opportunities for guests to experience the legendary Carnival spectacle during the cruises’ overnights in Rio de Janeiro. From grandstand seating and front-row box seats to luxury VIP sky box suites with gourmet goodies, guests have a choice of several fully escorted, reserved seating programmes at the Sambadrome.

There’s even an option to participate first-hand – marching in the parade, dressed in costume and performing with one of the samba schools. Crystal Symphony’s Miami to Rio and Rio to Buenos Aires voyages on February 6 and 20 respectively end or begin on the parade’s two best nights, Sunday and Monday, when 30,000 glamorously-costumed members of the top samba schools thrill crowds with singing, dancing, drumming and colourful floats. All excursion participants (even those in the parade) will be accompanied by experienced, secure guides from beginning to end, with several convenient late-night shore-to-ship shuttles.

Crystal’s Carnival excursions begin at $799 per person rising to $12,999 per person for the VIP box suite package.
