If you are traveling through Brazil or Mercosur countries, just board with your RG. On trips abroad, do not forget to always carry your passport and, if the country you are visiting requires a visa, arrange it as well.


The cabins are usually tight and it is very important to think about this when packing. It’s no use taking big suitcases, because you will not have much space to handle them.

As most cruises are made in the summer, bikinis, swimsuits, bathing suits, slippers, hats or caps(the deep sea sun is strong!) And cooler and more comfortable clothes are mandatory items. Women: watch out for very short clothes! You will need to climb stairs, not to mention that the deck usually sells a lot.
