BRAZIL

Scaling Rio de Janeiro’s Christ the Redeemer statue — one of the New Seven Wonders of the World — is among the many “wow” moments that await on a cruise to Brazil with Holland America Line. Soccer fans cruising into Sao Paulo can visit the Pele Museum in Santos, while Recife (the “Venice of Brazil”) leads to colonial Olinda, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can track alligators at night, go piranha fishing, and discover other jungly secrets on an Amazon cruise that calls in Manaus and Santarem.
