Regardless of people’s faith, the statue has become incredibly iconic across the world. The sombre, embracing figure of Christ overlooking the colourful city of Rio offers an incredible poignant visage. Viewable from the port as the ship comes to dock, it is the striking image that visitors tend to notice first. Royal Caribbean run cruises throughout the year to the carnival capital of the world, allowing passengers to enjoy the city’s colour and culture.
