Setting sail from Seattle

Eclectic Seattle is a jumble of different neighbourhoods, each with its own distinctive character. Fremont, the self-proclaimed 'centre of the universe', is an arty, bohemian district where you'll find everything from trolls lurking under bridges to a statue of Lenin, while Capitol Hill is characterised by creaking mansions and trendy boutiques, and waterfront Ballard has a fascinating Scandinavian heritage. Seattle also enjoys a stunning natural setting, surrounded by forests, mountains and the broad sweep of Puget Sound, and boasts a wealth of green spaces.

Our tip

Wander through Pike Place market – make sure you visit the fish stall, a surprise awaits!

Arriving in Rio de Janeiro

The carnival capital of the world, Rio de Janeiro needs little introduction. We can think of few cities in the world that are able to compete when it comes to location: hugging the beautiful sandy shore and surrounded by jungle-clad islands and mountains, including the iconic Corcovado, the setting for Brazil's most vibrant city is simply breathtaking. Strut your stuff on Copacabana beach, shimmy to the rhythms of samba and bossa nova, or just drink in the view from the feet of Christ the Redeemer - Rio is truly a destination to be savoured.

Don't miss

A visit to Christ the Redeemer for the unbeatable views over the city.
