Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Step ashore in the vibrant and exciting seaside city of Rio de Janeiro. Mention Rio and the first things that come to mind are the 38-metre high Christ the Redeemer statue atop Mount Corcovado, Sugar Loaf Mountain, and the famous carnival. Spend time on the famous Copacabana and Ipanema beaches or visit Chilean-born artist Jorge Selaron's fascinating Escadaria Selaron stairway. Pay a call to the sculptures and art-adorned pavilions at Passeio Publico then continue on to Parque do Flamengo and the nearby Museum of Modern Art. The ancient Nossa Senhora de Campo church and Sao Bento church and monastery contrast with the modern-day Catedral de Sao Sebastiao. Explore the atmospheric Santa Teresa district or discover the exhibits at the National Museum at Quinta da Boa Vista. Take a boat trip over to Ilha de Paqueta to view the sights from the comfort of a horse-drawn carriage.
9
Buzios, Brazil
Sitting on an 8km-long peninsula to the east of Rio de Janeiro is the St Tropez of Brazil - Buzios. This vibrant resort comprises three neighbourhoods - Armacao dos Buzios, home to the picturesque Orla Bardot promenade and bustling Rua de Pedras; Ossos with its picturesque harbour and yacht club; and the lively summer village of Manguinhos. The 23 beaches on the peninsula understandably draw the crowds; enjoy water sports at the horseshoe bay at Ferradura and excellent surfing opportunities at Geriba. Culture fans can admire statues of Brigitte Bardot (who spent holidays here in the 1960s) and President Juscelino Kubitschek, and the Fishermen Statues - all created by sculptor Christina Motta.
10
Ilha Grande, Brazil
Ilha Grande, 120 miles south of Rio de Janeiro, is today's port of call. Step ashore on this paradise island and discover over 200 beaches and verdant exotic rainforests. Keep your eyes peeled for iguanas, monkeys, and the abundant birds and wildlife that make their home in the island's dense Atlantic forests. Head to the south-eastern shore and enjoy the far-reaching and palm tree-lined Lopes Mendes Beach, or discover the fish-filled waters of Lagoa Azul to the north of the island. Pay a visit to the impressive 19th-century Sao Sebastiao Church at Vila do Abraao on the northeast coast. The offshore waters are also a haven for snorkelling, kayaking, and diving.
11
Itajai, Brazil
A lively port city in southeast Brazil, Itajai is well-known for its popular surfing beaches, including Praia Brava and Praia do Atalaia. No time in Itajai is complete without visiting Geremias Beach, which displays Bico do Papagaio; a rock that resembles a parrot’s head. Retreat to Praia das Laranjeiras for the perfect swimming spot lined with hip cafes, or take in the Brazilian architecture of Blessed Sacrament Parish. If you love a great view be sure to head to Mirante Morocco da Cruz for plenty of scenic vistas. Wander the peaceful Marina Itajai with a grab 'n' go lunch or perhaps check out exhibits at Itajai History Museum. Take pictures next to the Molhe do Pontal Norte sign or try the region’s best wines at Villa Prando.

Montevideo, Uruguay
Montevideo, Uruguay’s capital city, sits alongside Montevideo Bay. Plaza de la Independencia is the main hub of the city and leads to the Ciudad Vieja old town with its colonial houses, art deco buildings, and fascinating landmarks such as Palacio Salvo and the Solis Theatre. Admire the international artworks and surrounding Japanese gardens at the Museum of Fine Arts - Juan Manuel Blanes. Climb up to Fortaleza del Cerro to enjoy panoramic views of the city and beyond. No visit to Montevideo would be complete without enjoying parilla-grilled fare at one of the steakhouses at Mercado Del Puerto or tasting the traditional yerba mate tea. Spend a few hours soaking up the sunshine on the golden sands of Pocitos Beach or take a leisurely stroll along La Rambla promenade.

Background
MSC Sinfonia
Overview
Given some of the cruise leviathans currently plying the oceans, MSC Sinfonia is not a large ship; yet her 9 passengers decks and 250 metre length accommodate an awful lot of comfort and quality for her guests. More important than sheer scale is good design and MSC Sinfonia manages to provide many different and sympathetic moods throughout her public spaces. If you’re looking for relaxation, then make your way to Le Terme where a cleansing sauna and soothing massage await. Or, for something more active, the same facility on Debussy deck boasts a fully equipped gym too. And, whilst you’re away, why not perfect that golf swing with a state-of-the-art Virtual Golf Simulator that’s perfect for beginners and seasoned professionals too. But, if this is all too serious for you, why not enjoy a spot of mini-golf or traditional deck games – a great way to get all the family involved and meet new friends! Whether you’re cruising in the Med’ or South Africa the sea air tends to stimulate the appetite and therefore, aside from the fine cuisine that you’ll find in the restaurants, you’ll find plenty to keep body and soul together in the plush Café Le Baroque and from the bright, modern La Terrazza Buffet. Of course there are plenty of excellent bars whilst the Irish Pub, Shelagh’s House, will make British cruisers feel right at home!
