When we packed up to go to the ship, we barely fit into a small car they use as taxis. The girls were in awe of these weird things call window cranks.

First stop on the ship is to the Muster station to get a few safety tips and try on the lifejackets. Luckily we didn't need them.

If you remember  the Love Boat, everyone walked around in tuxes and formal gowns. It wasn't quite that bad, but we did have a couple dress up nights.

Sugar loaf mountain is one of the places to go to while in Rio. If you look close, you'll see cable cars. If you watch Moonraker, there is a great fight scene between jaws and Bond.

This is my attempt at a panorama photo from on top the ship. Yes, that is a movie screen on the top deck. We watched a few movies out there from the pool or hot tub.
