Emerald-green waters, coral reefs, lagoons, coconut palms and mangrovesThe Brazilian northeast is composed of nine different states and Alagoas is perhaps the prettiest of these, characterized by emerald-green waters, coral reefs, lagoons, coconut palms and mangroves.
The region is steeped in culture and folklore and the capital city Maceio has much to offer visitors. Maceio is a quaint seaside resort town that has retained all its character and vibrancy: the busy port bears witness to Maceio’s former business as a sugar exporter, and today it is a busy but unspoiled urban center that is fast becoming Brazil’s answer to Miami.
In Maceio you can enjoy the best of everything – from historical sights to some of Brazil’s finest beaches, located nearby.
Undoubtedly some guests will wish to take time out from the ship and laze on the soft white sands under the shade of the gently swaying coconut palms.
Those ready for a more stimulation will enjoy immersing themselves in local culture. We have a range of great packages and deals on day trips to create a relaxing day off your luxury MSC cruise ship.
Why not enter the true vacation spirit and opt for a lagoon excursion with a chance to swim in crystal waters. Or take the opportunity to learn about this vacation destination and take the Maceio city tour, visiting the cathedral and local crafts markets that sell intricate lacework and jewellery.
The Théo Brandão Museum exhibits folk and primitive art, while football fans will love the King Pele stadium, named after the legendary Brazilian footballer.
