Full description
Spend a full-day shore excursion soaking up the sights of Rio de Janeiro. Get picked up from the Cruise Terminal Pier Mauá and drive to your selected attractions (depending on option booked). You could drive up to the Christ the Redeemer Statue - one of the New Seven Wonders of the World - on top of Corcovado Mountain. You can also enjoy a drive through the Tijuca Forest - one of the largest urban forests in the world - before coming upon to incredible views of the entire city.

Next, maybe drive past the legendary Maracanã soccer stadium and head to Sambódromo, the location of Rio's exciting Carnaval. Visit the distinctive Metropolitan Cathedral, a modern structure that is influenced by Mayan pyramids. Check out the brightly colored tiles of the world-famous Selarón Steps, one of Rio's most distinctive landmarks. Then, head to a local steakhouse to enjoy a delicious barbecue lunch (if option selected).

After lunch, make an optional final trip to Sugarloaf Mountain. Ride the cable cars to the top of Sugarloaf, reaching a height of 1,295 feet (395 m). Conclude the tour with an exquisitely beautiful panorama of Rio de Janeiro. Return to the Cruise Terminal Pier Mauá.
