I have been several times in Rio de Janeiro.

I came here when I was working onboard of M/S Vistafjord.Rio was one of the very few ports where we always stayed overnight.

My best memory of Rio is the great mountain-scenery with Corcovaro (with the statue) and the famous Sugar Loaf, with the cable-car-station on top.

    What a beautiful coastline! It's no wonder your ship stayed overnight each time you visited. Beaches would make you want to stay for a month!

    The view over Rio is really beautiful, and Copacabana sounds fun to visit some day!
