Dinner was very good and authentic Brazilian BBQ. The show was very entertaining and the performers were very personable when we were arriving - Taking photos with us before and after the show.
I enjoyed the show, the musicians are fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Enjoyed it very much.
The show gives a panoramic view of the roots of the samba, from the native and African influences up to the modern day spectacular Carnival. While it starts off on the slow side, it picks up momentum as it progresses.
The trip was great, enjoyed the show. Only wish was getting there a little earlier to select seats. On our arrival 15 minutes before most seats were taken.
This is a good show and we went for a good dinner before the show
We loved the Plataforma Samba show in Rio. But, the ride from the cruise pier took about 2 hours because of all the stops we made on the way! This was not good! We recommended this to some others on our cruise ship, and they were not happy about that bus ride. We all recommend that if you want cruise passengers to take your excursions, that you arrange for a separate bus pick-up from the cruise pier.
The show was excellent. The logistics were terrible. For a 10 PM show we were picked up at 8 and rode around downtown RIO for 1.5 hours for no apparent reason.
The theatre itself is a bit tired and the seating is in chairs around a raised stage - feels more like a school hall. The actual show is worth it for the costumes. It is a lot of fun if you accept it for what it is - Broadway it isn't ! But glad we did it.
