The deal
With the Olympics in 2016 being held in Rio de Janeiro, all eyes are on Brazil and the cruise industry has been stationing more ships than ever in this South American nation.

This area may be the next hotspot for cruise lovers, but high prices are still restricting many to the less expensive Caribbean itineraries. However, we’ve uncovered a 6-night cruise to Brazil that’s less than the cost of most Caribbean sailings — starting from just $374!

The Splendour of the Seas embarks from Sao Paulo, Brazil on January 31 and spends a day at sea before arriving in Buzios. This sleepy fishing village has blossomed into a thriving beach destination lined with boutique shops and charming cafés.

Next up is Ilha Grande, a popular island destination for people living in Rio, thanks to its untouched beaches and superb snorkeling.  Finally, the ship calls on Ilhabela known for its excellent windsurfing conditions and rainforest eco-preserve. Interior cabins for this cruise are priced from just $374, with oceanview staterooms available from just $409!

The dollars
All quotes are per person and based on double occupancy. Rates cover accommodations, meals and entertainment on the ship. Fees and taxes, as well as shore excursions, personal expenses, alcoholic beverages, and tips are additional.

The catch
Book soon — the two previous sailing dates for this itinerary have already sold out.
