A frighteningly early start! Up at 2.30 in order to leave for the airport at 3.30!
A short 30 minute drive to the airport. After a lengthy check-in, we headed for the 'VIP Lounge' and waited for the flight.
We took off a little late and arrived in Brazil around 11ish (allowing for the one-hour difference).
Then after a long delay of an hour or so whilst we waited for some late passengers who'd lost their luggage, we eventually board the coach for our two-hour journey.
We arrived at the cruise terminal in Santos at 2.30pm. There were zillions of passengers queuing for checking-in. It was hot, noisy and a long queue awaited us!
We finally checked in. Some 45 minutes later! Initial impressions of the room is disappointing. No fridge and they hadn't responded to our request for a double-bed. It's a really pokey room! The afternoon buffet resembled a rugby-scrum and it looks as if they've changed the time of the second-sitting dinner for us to 10pm!
16.30 So, we're off to explore the ship and resolve some of the issues.
More tomorrow... :)
