Brazil’s 2022-2023 cruise season will commence in October with a total of 19 itineraries visiting 8 ports/destinations in the Brazilian states of Rio de Janeiro, Santa Catarina, and Sao Paulo (Santos), including the port cities Buzios, Ilhabela, Recife, Ubatuba.

Cruise ship protocols feature mandatory full vaccination for guests and crew members and required pre-boarding COVID testing, including PCR tests performed 3 days prior to sailing and 1-day antigen tests. Frequent testing of at least 10% of passengers and crew members during the voyage will also take place.

Passengers will have to wear masks and social distance in appropriate settings, while “cruise ships also have isolation and quarantine facilities” for vacationers who test positive. Cruise lines are required to maintain “extensive response plans using private onshore resources to avoid any burden to ports” or communities.
