Brazil comes alive every year around February and 2013 is no exception - from 9th February the city of Rio de Janeiro will experience the best, most oppulent Carnival in the World. People travel from all over the globe for this one event and hotel accommodation is always impossible to find and always sold at a premium. However, experiencing Mardi Gras knowing your luxury cruise ship awaits you after a hard day or night of partying is the answer.
