RIO DE Janeiro or "River of January" is named after the month Portuguese explorers first discovered this now bustling and colourful city. And colourful it needs to be - to compete with the natural beauty of its surroundings. Sugarloaf Mountain and myriad other peaks jostle for attention at the north and west of the city.
THE MEDITERRANEAN is the world's most popular cruising area after the Caribbean, thanks to its abundance of culture, stunning scenery, wonderful food and great shopping. Little can beat the thrill of gazing out over the rooftops of Venice as your ship glides up the Giudecca Canal.
