Hi we have done the brazil cruise with island cruises many times. As for curency, you will need brazil real for the time inn brazil you can take us dollars or even british money but you would have to get it changed at one of the change beaurax, and you will need to take some id, without it there are only a few places that will change it. have a great time.

Thanks for the quick reply. As you have done the cruise before have you any idea approximately of the amount of Brazilian currency I might need for the trips. I assume it will be for drinks,food and a few souvenirs. Does the equivalent of £80 sound about write as I believe you cannot change the currency back in England.

Hello The organised excusurions vary , some of the full day ones were £100, but there wasnt any higher than that, that i can remember. Its been 2 years since i did the excursions. I find it a lot cheaper and and easier to make my own way. for instance the trip to the statue, was £80, and that included dinner, so wasnt that bad, but me and my friend did it for £45, a saving of £115, if you want to buy drinks, the ship does sell a package you can take with you, which is about £3.50, and includes a bottle of water, and some type of holder, but agin you will have opportunites to buy drinks when on shore which will be very much chaeper. £80 as you mentioned, would definately last me, as a lot of things there wre cheap, but remeber if you did spend it all on one day, you can change sterling into reals, either ont he ship (but check there rate, as its often a lot more then on shore) and on shore as long as you take some id, there area lot of places that will exchange it, just make sure you have id, as we only found one place that would do exchanges without id, and also if you did have any reals left, you can also exchange it back to uk pound or euros on shore, before you get back on ship. (again you will need id) hope you have a lovely time, i might be on that cruise with you, but i cant book till about 3 weeks before, but id love to do it again.

Hello if you book trips with the ship, they will accept any curreny or even credit card going independantly, the curreny is bazil Reals, you can get these from post office and other excange beurauxs, yoy can also get them in brazil, but you need id, and finally you van exchange sterling on ship for reals, but the exchange rate is usually unfavourable on the ship.

What is a Luxury Cruise? And W...

By Cordelia Nixon

Whilst not everyone can or wish to afford cruise lines like: Silverseas, Regent, Seabourne, Crystal Cruises, there are many of you that do. So this blog is for you! 1st Ask What Is Luxury?For me it is “a state of GREAT comfort, elegance and high quality over necessity” often considerably more in cost than “mainstream” whether the product is Chocolate, Cars, Hotels (Like the Burj in Dubai) lingerie, perfume or as in our case Cruise Ships.To some (those who have never cr...
