ATLANTIS RIO 2008
Once again I returned to Rio De Jeneiro, Brazil for 3 days in port for Carnivale. Two years ago, Paul and I traveled to Buenos Aires first, and ended up at the Sambadrome (see Atlantis Rio Cruise 2006 pix). That cruise was sold out and on a small boutique Oceania ship. This time, we sailed on Celebrity's Infinity and started in Rio.
I debated about spending the $850 per night for Sambadrome Tix. Afterall, I had already seen it. It was fabulous and incredible. But would it be worth it the second time around? I opted for the unreserved section (still not cheap at $350 per night). I'm glad I went, because it reminded me how spectacular Sambadrome really is. Here's some of what I saw:
